Everyone at Mint Health and Fitness must play by the Rules. The Rules aren’t just any old rules – they’re part of your official Mint Application Contract and have been lovingly prepared by our legal guys.
So please take a moment to get familiar with what they have to say.

Who Should Play By the Rules?

The Mint Team, Mint members (known as “Members” in your contract and throughout these rules) and their guests (together known as “you”).

Why?

So we can keep ourselves safe and maintain our club standards. So everyone, especially you, can have a good time here at Mint.

Playing Fair

Unlike some rules, like only having alcohol once a week, our rules can’t be broken.

If you don’t comply, we may ask you to leave the club, deny you club access, or if it’s really serious terminate your membership.

We will of course be fair when applying our rules (which we’ll do at our discretion). While we’re not here to rain on your parade, we will consistently apply our rules so that everyone can work out in a safe and comfortable environment.

The Odd Change

We may change these rules occasionally. When this happens, we’ll let you know in advance by popping a notice on our club display boards/in-house tv screens and by updating our website (mintfit.co.nz). Please be sure to keep an eye out for any changes.

The Business End of Things

From the Start

  1. Be kind to yourself. Talk to your doctor before starting a new fitness program or using our club facilities.
  2. All members and guests must fill in a Health Check questionnaire before using our facilities.

Membership

  1. Every time you enter Mint please present your membership key tag at reception.
  2. No-one else may use your membership key tag.
  3. If your key tag is lost or stolen, you’ll need to organise a new one and pay the replacement fee (this is set out on the current club price list).
  4. If your membership fees aren't up to date, your membership is frozen, suspended or terminated, club access will be denied.
  5. On termination of membership please return your membership key tag.
  6. If we terminate your membership, you will no longer be eligible for membership at Mint Health and Fitness.

 If you Bring a Friend

  1. At our discretion, adult members may bring adult guests to our clubs by paying the guest fee set out in the current club price list.
  2. Guests must play by these club Rules.
  3. You must accompany guests at all times, be responsible for their behaviour and make sure that they play by these rules. Please don’t leave our clubs prior to your guest’s departure.
  4. You may not access Mint as a guest if your membership is frozen.

General Club Use

  1. Staffed opening and closing times are on our website (outside of these hours will be member access only).
  2. Don’t bring alcohol or illegal drugs into our clubs.
  3. If you bring in food or drink from outside the club, please don’t consume it inside our clubs.
  4. You may bring guide dogs into our clubs.
  5. Don’t use the club facilities while under the influence of alcohol, or drugs.
  6. Don’t smoke inside our clubs.
  7. Unless we give the OK, please don’t take photographs or sell any product or service to our members or guests.
  8. You’ll need to pay for any loss or damage caused by you, your junior members or guests while in the club.
  9. We may provide trial access to our clubs for potential minties and other folks.

Equipment and On the Training Floor

  1. Use equipment for its intended purpose. Follow the instructions provided and ask for help if you need it.
  2. No food or bags on the training floor.
  3. Drinks in plastic bottles containing water or sports drinks are OK to bring onto the training floor.
  4. Please think of other people by replacing weights and equipment after use.
  5. A towel must be used on all equipment and while you’re strutting your stuff on the training floor. Please wipe down equipment after use – no one wants the pleasure of your sweat, no matter how sweet it is.

What and What Not to Wear

  1. Suitable exercise gear must be worn at all times in our clubs. For example, t-shirts/tops (no bare chests thanks fellas) and closed footwear must be worn at all times expect when you’re on the Power Plate, under personal trainer supervision or in the changing rooms.
  2. If you’re unsure of what to wear ask our Mint team.

Cubby Holes, Changing Rooms and your Belongings

  1. Cubby holes are available to store your gear while using the club (if they’re not all full). We can’t guarantee that the use of a locker will stop theft or damage to your stuff from occurring.
  2. Cubby holes are available for use only while you’re on a club’s premise. Any gear left in the cubby holes overnight will be removed. (If it’s not collected in 7 days, we’ll donate it to charity).
  3. Only one person can be in a shower cubicle at any one time (with the exception of parents or guardians, who may accompany their own children aged up to 6 years).
  4. All children up to 15 years must be accompanied by a parent or adult carer when using the changing rooms. Children under the age of 6 may enter changing rooms of the opposite sex. Children over the age of 6 may only enter changing rooms of the same sex.

Parking

  1. Parking is only for members and guests while using club facilities.
  2. If any vehicle appears to be parked without our OK, we’ll make an announcement to members. If we don’t get a response, any unclaimed vehicles may be clamped, and a fee charged for their release. The clamping fee will be donated to a charity selected by Mint health and fitness.
  3. We will not be liable for any loss, theft and/or damage to vehicles on club premises or in any Mint parking area, except where such loss, theft or damage has arisen from our breach of contract.

Personal Training

  1. Only Mint Health and Fitness Professionals can provide services in our clubs. Please don’t bring your own trainer into our club. We would hate to embarrass anyone.

Cancellation Policy

When a client wishes to make a cancellation regarding an appointment they need to give us at least 12 hours' notice or re-book their appointment within the same week. Cancellations are on a person by person basis and is up to the discretion of Mint Health & Fitness.  As we are all busy people we allow for "things to come up" and re-booking with in the same week is an acceptable change.

Safety

  1. Don’t mess around with fire doors or fire exits.
  2. Please follow any health and safety notices displayed in our club.
  3. In an emergency or when an announcement is made, have your ears turned on and follow the club staff instructions at all times.

Last but not Least

  1. Restricted hours of access apply for 14 – 15 year olds and they must have an ignition session before they can train.
  2. Mint may occasionally take photographs/images of the Club and its facilities (including members). We’ll try our best to get your OK beforehand (so you can glam up) but this may not always be possible. We reserve the right to use these photographs/images for commercial purposes without payment.
  3. Club price lists will change from time to time.
  4. We reserve absolute discretion when approving club membership applications.
  5. Always respect other club members, guests and our staff.
  6. Please use the club in a way that doesn't disturb, detract or impair anyone’s experience.

Why Are We Different?

Mint Health & Fitness  for want of a better word is a "boutique" fitness and food facility.  We have fantastic personal trainers, nutritionists & clean eating cafe that all work together to make sure that your experience at Mint is unlike any other health a nutrition facility. 
The Mint experience is something that we have found hard to describe, but our members all say the same thing, friendly staff and atmosphere with helpful instruction.  
This obviously isn't it all, we have PURE Cafe with it great selection of healthy nutritious food, but to find out for yourself what our difference is come on down and talk to the team.
We are a friendly bunch at Mint and will gladly show you around and tell why we are proud to be a Mintie.
P.S. Ask about a free trial workout just to see if you like us. One of our team may even be able to help with a one on one workout if you are newbie exerciser (we don't want you to hurt yourself).
No more procrastinating
No more excuses

Whats Our Members Are Saying


I felt determined when I joined Mint. I have lost approx. 15 Kgs since my heaviest and about 1.5Kg in the last 2 weeks, I am now eating 8 times a day and I feel that what I am doing is working for me. It was hard to stay away from those salt and vinegar chips and keep up with the frequency of meals but I am getting there. I originally went to Jane when I first started and struggled with the food (salads are just not for me) but we found some alternatives which works. Having the BIA’s done with Jane has been great to see the results. Also, I have learned about food composition and eating clean.
Dudley Crabbe
I felt determined when I joined Mint. With my husband already being a member and enjoying it. I feel fitter and Jane has helped me change some of eating habits so I am hoping I can start losing some weight. Easy access to Jane being on site will help me get to my goals over the next few months. Jane has kept me going, don't give up, and some good tips how important protein is in the diet.
Anne Gibling
I was hopeful joining Mint and I feel that I have made a steady improvement throughout my time at Mint. Jane has helped me control my blood sugar levels and they are better than ever. Jane provided great advice and tips.
Tony Gibling
I felt relaxed when joining Mint. I found that at Mint I have lost weight and found it a great way to deal with stress. Jane helped me change my bad eating habits and organised me to have a necessary blood tests done in America which made a big difference.
Garry Beaumont
Making the decision to join the gym was actually pretty hard. I was going through a particularly stressful time. The results I feel the most are: I wasn’t necessarily focused on aerobic health when I started but I feel much fitter and that’s a lovely feeling. I’m fitting into some older clothes – very gratifying. But the most important result is that I am in control of my choices. I’m doing the best I can to take care of myself. I feel more confident in the face of other challenges. So if I had to say what the number one result of my time at Mint is, it’s mental. I have a completely different relationship with exercise, which has become something I enjoy doing because it clears my head and makes me feel good about myself. I enjoy being in my body; I feel proud of what it can do. This has been an incredibly valuable experience – and one that’s ongoing, which is cool as well. I’m looking forward to what comes next! Wendy and I thought to tell you how much we miss Mint now that we are on 6 months in Heidelberg Germany after our three months in Christchurch. We have found a gym here that is very well equipped but it is VERY German and some of the classes look like torture rooms!
Greta Bond
December 21 we finally go back to Vancouver and resume our normal life. I very much appreciate the two back workouts you gave me and I am still doing them, alternating several times a week. They are the best I have ever had and I have had great back health since working with you. I very much thank you for that. Best wishes from your Canadian fan club - congrats on the new gym and good business to both of you.
Wendy & Chris
Having battled multiple heath issues and as a busy Mum of three young adults, a chance conversation led me to the team at Mint. Nutritional advice was just the beginning! I began Reflexology with Emma, Carole’s massage as well as a totally personalised gym program on a one-to-one basis with Mike. I cannot adequately convey the impact of encouragement, support, genuine interest, as well as the wonderful facilities that Mint provides as I literally claw my way back to health. The whole body approach of health and wellness at Mint is truly unique. With the addition of Pure Cafe Co. enabling you to put a foot in the door to this amazing setup that is Mint Health and Fitness.
Angela
I joined the Mint fitness gym in December 2013 because being a bus driver I needed a way to keep fit and keep all my joints moving. I find it really easy to go because it’s just across the road from where I work. They say a healthy body helps towards a healthy mind and so it helps with all the stress of everyday life and the stress that comes with driving around the city all day everyday. The team at Mint, Mike, Gabby and Bonnie are really friendly and help with anything you need while you are there. The changing rooms are always clean and tidy and well looked after. There is also a Cafe in the same building which serves healthy food to complement the exercise. I joined for 3 months and in conjunction with my own cycling am enjoying working out to the program Mike has set up for me. The 24 hour access, its great for the weekends and after work and also means I can go and work out when it suits. I really love it – Mint is great.
Peter
I joined mint as this year I am working in a third world Country which has a high level of security risk and a demanding physical environment. The team at Mint listened carefully to what I was needing and tailored an exercise and nutrition programme to get me to the physical condition I need to be in. You are not just another number at mint, they genuinely care about you and your goals. You always feel welcome and always have advice. I love how you can get a bite to eat after a work out, the time savings are so helpful. This is the best gym in the city, and the tuna wraps are fantastic!"

When the quake shook everything up, I unwilling distanced myself from MINT, lost my ‘work out mojo’. It wasn’t until late 2013 that I got back into training. From this unplanned break I can see first-hand how much better I feel psychologically and physically from training. BUT the thing that makes MINT the place for me is that everyone gets to know you. If you are self-guided training (me presently) or getting one on one personal training, MINT’S care and attention is what makes it. The team pay attention to how often you show up, Mike and Di show a personal interest in my Progress, I feel spurred on by this. You cannot underestimate the power of someone noticing you’re not at the gym!! My journey this time is a more driven one. I know how easy it is to ‘slip’ out of habit. And I know for me, MINT is the place to achieve my fitness goals.
Simon
Before Mint I weighed 78kgs. I’d been overweight since childhood and was a comfort eater. Never played any sports or been into any sort of exercise. I was scared of joining a gym. I remember telling myself there was no way I could ever be a person who was into working out and healthy eating because it just wasn’t me. Six months later and 20kgs lighter, I’m now the person I thought I'd never be. I’m so happy with who I am now and for the first time ever, I can say I truly love myself. I really don’t believe that I could have achieved so much success without all the wonderful people at Mint supporting and motivating me 100%. Joining Mint has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.
