This is as good as other fitness first club. Besides, it is a good place for swimming for the people who lives in the lower north shore. Otherwise you need to pay more money to travel to Olympic park or Ryde Aquatic center for swimming.
However, the bad thing is the pool is not owned by fitness first and the opening time is limited, off peak hour.
Fitness first has the best instructors, and a large range of workout machines to choose from. Carlingford fitness first is a very large gym, and also has an indoor pool. They provide great group sessions and have great facilities. Membership is a bit expensive, but its worth it.
