Our open term contract means you're not tied into a long-term deal that doesn't work for you.
Our members asked for flexibility, without break fees and long term commitments. So that's what we're offering. Even better, there's no joining fee or cancellation fee. Just let us know in writing two weeks in advance if you're going to leave us (we'd love for you to stay though).
Get the best value from your membership with our range of options to suit your lifestyle. Depending on how often you will be using the gym, and whether you plan to live near Queenstown long term or short term, we have casual passes, 10-visit passes or membership options available.
All casual entry and gym memberships include the use of all Alpine Aqualand swimming pool facilities (except the hydroslides and learners' pool).
If you're buying a membership you can also choose whether you'd like to pre-pay up front or pay fortnightly via direct debit.
Check out our pricing page for membership options. If you are unsure what the best option for you is, please give us a call on 03 450 9005 and one of our team will be able to talk you through it.Close

Les Mills group fitness classes
Everyone’s doing it. More than five million people in 80 countries around the world take a Les Mills group fitness class every week and we know you’ll love them too. Whether you’re interested in strength or cardio fitness, fat loss or toning, agility, speed, endurance, coordination, flexibility and health we have a Les Mills class to suit your fitness objectives.
Explore our 'Muscle Beach' area and take your gym workout outside; we set up different equipment for you during the day and you’ll find different workout options, bootcamps and courses happening in this area too.

Head upstairs to warm up, warm down or work out with a full range of Life Fitness cardio equipment including rowers, treadmills, cross-trainers, bikes, ski and kayak machines, and skipping ropes; it’s spacious, light and airy with Sky TV... not to mention the stunning views out over the mountains!

Volunteers wanted - can you help?
Playtime relies on an awesome team of volunteers. Can you help out for a few hours a week in return for a free gym and pool pass (which you can give to someone else if you wish)?
Playtime is open weekday mornings during school terms when members can drop off their pre-schoolers for a maximum of two hours per day. Email Tua for more details of what's involved for volunteers:
Ideally you'll be able to make a minimum three-month commitment so the kids can get to know you!Close
As part of our ongoing facility upgrade programme, you may have noticed we received some new lockers in the change rooms and outside the gym. I don’t know about you but we’re still getting used to the tech so we’ve created this quick video featuring Gordon aka ‘Flash’.
Thank you for your patience while we work through the best settings for the new lockers, we understand it is frustrating when there are teething issues. You can help us by following all the steps in the video to ensure lockers are available for the next user.Close
Our Alpine Health & Fitness gym and group fitness classes are based at Queenstown Events Centre, Frankton. There's heaps of free parking but the car park does get busy when we're hosting certain events and junior sport at weekends.
