Get excited Gold Coast! We’ve put in the hard yards just for you, literally! Winter months are coming to a close (even though it never really came) the layers are going to start peeling off as summer makes a comeback! But have no fear, we’ve found all the best places on the Coast where you can get your burpees for under a fiver! 

No matter what scale you are on when it comes to your fitness—exercise or extra fries—we’ve got you covered, and saving you the coin, so you can have one more cocktail at happy hour or go extra on the avo at Sunday brunch. #balance

Here is our round up of the best, cheap fitness classes on the Gold Coast. 

High Intensity Interval Training

Get fit AF for a measly fiver with the Robina Fitness Group at Robina Common. Get ready for 30 minutes of intense puffing and forehead sweat! But it’s only 30 minutes, so that’s 10 minutes, three times or six rounds of 5 minutes, you feel us? #YouGotThis. Join the morning crew of Robina HIITers at the Robina Common car park at 6.25am every morning from Monday to Saturday.

When: Monday to Saturdays; 6.25am 
Where: Robina Common, 45 Ron Penhaligon Way, Robina QLD
Cost: $5

Sand, Sea & Sweat

Join the Kiss The Berry Team for a bootcamp on Burleigh Heads beach! Jump in on an hour of guaranteed sweat! Will there be burpees? Yes. Will there be push ups? Yes. But they will be done at one of the most beautiful spots on the coast, and the $5 that you invest towards your summer bod can be refunded on a Kiss The Berry acai bowl after the class! How’s that for motivation!

When: Saturdays, monthly; 8am
Where: Burleigh Heads Beach 
Cost: $5

Boxing

When you know those summer crops and tank tops are about to quickly make a comeback, but the old arms have been doing nothing but picking up burgers from Uber Eats over winter. Head on over to a $3 Boxing Class in Mudgeeraba for a full body strength and sweat sesh. This one is a tester for sure, but you can say hello to endorphins galore!
