Miss K, nascent gym bunny, has alerted me to a handy deal on membership to Yarra Leisure, an amalgamation of what used to be the Fitzroy Pool on Alexandra Parade, down the end of my old haunt, Napier St, the Richmond Pool off Bridge Rd in Gleadall St, and the Collingwood Pool on Hoddle St opposite Clifton Hill station. They are offering 6 months’ full use of all three pools, spas, saunas, lockers, gyms, and classes for $307 (and tennis court for family memberships) with no joining fee. After the first 3 months you can suspend your membership for up to 9 weeks a year in blocks of 2 months or more which is unusually generous. That makes it a bit more than $1.50 a day and a bit more than $11.50 a week. After the first 6 months, the special deal is off, and you pay about $2.50 a day or $16.50 a week. Unless you join with your better half, in which case you can pay $2 a day or $14 a week each, but you have to join for a year. Thanks to the cameraphone weilding Doubtful Guest for the pic.
