IF YOU'RE planning to shed some kilos before summer kicks in then Anytime Fitness Fairfield is the place to be.
The 24-hour gym recently expanded to two storeys, making it the largest fitness centre in the area.
Ricky Singh said he installed a lift at the premises so people with disabilities could join in.
"We have 15 new machines to help people lose weight and we've doubled up on our cardio equipment, which displays the person's heart rate and how much weight they're losing while exercising," he said.
"We also hired new trainers who carry out free health checks, such as the person's heart rate and blood pressure, prior to them becoming members so that the trainer knows their goals."
The gym is also offering new tailored programs, including a seven-day free pass to the gym.
"We also have Arabic-speaking staff who can help those who don't speak English," Mr Singh said.
The new gym was launched on July 28, with doctors, pharmacists and physiotherapists in attendance.
As part of the launch, Mr Singh is carrying out two fund-raisers to help seriously ill children and Christians fleeing war-torn Iraq.
"So far, we've raised $800 for the Children's Hospital at Westmead and nearly $500 for the Islamic Relief," he said.
He hopes to raise more than $1000 for the hospital and $2000 for the Islamic Relief.
"We're donating $3 from membership fees to each fund-raiser," he said.
"I wanted to give back to the community."
