The gym that literally has it all.

With a 25-metre heated indoor pool as well as a 25-metre heated rooftop pool; a spa and sauna; nine outdoor tennis courts and three indoor tennis courts (as well as private tennis lessons); a studio with small to medium-sized group fitness classes (including HIIT, boxing, barre, a free weights class, yoga, pilates and spin); a large weights area equipped with a TRX functional fitness zone, a dedicated free weights area and various high end gym gadgets; a crèche to leave your kids at while you exercise; fancy bathrooms with GHD hairdryers and straighteners; and free/relatively cheap parking (depending on your membership plan) — there is literally no feature that this gym doesn't have and doesn't do well.

Further unofficial but very welcome bonuses to membership includes being able to watch the annual ASB Classic for free from atop the gym's rooftop pool area. The only drawback this gym has is its price tag and its slightly disinterested administrative staff.

For those interested in joining, membership options vary, with gym goers given the choice of whether they would like a standard membership (which includes access the gym facilities, fitness classes, personal trainers (at an extra cost), the pool and recreational area), a full membership (which is essentially a standard membership but also includes access to the racquet courts) or a premium membership (a deluxe membership which on top of the access to everything that a full membership gives you, also gives you access to a regenerative spa within the complex, complimentary sweat and shower towel hire, a monthly guest pass for you to bring a friend, extended booking privileges - i.e. you can book your fitness classes a few days before the rest of the gym, access to other Next Gen gyms as well as complimentary three hour covered parking (other gym members have to pay)). There are also family, couples, singles, students, corporate, over 65 year old and children's pricing packages available. The minimum membership term commitment is twelve weeks, although you are financially much better off signing up for a minimum term of one year. The gym does not make their membership pricing publicly available, so contact Next Gen directly to find out what their current membership pricing and package deals are.
