YOU can snap into shape at Maryborough's newest gym, where the focus is on friendship and fun.

The 24-hour workout wonderland features new facilities and plenty of space for fitness fans to work-out.

Manager Megan Geary said the chain operated 24-hours a day to accommodate people's busy lifestyles.

"The idea is people can come in at their ideal time," she said.

Ms Geary said fun was one of Snap's biggest strengths, offering members free group classes, music and TV.

"We've got a really cool jukebox," she said.

"You can come in and select the music for your work-out."

Ms Geary said the gym's personal trainer Ricky Butler was also there for clients.

"If anyone ever needs a personal trainer, he's here to help," she said.

Ms Geary said Snap was an open, warm environment which included child-minding and a supplement store.

"I like to get to know everyone who comes through," she said.

"I've suffered from depression for a really long time. I came into the fitness industry because it helped me deal with it."

Ms Geary said her work helped improve her mental and physical health.

"We're here to help people get fit and healthy," she said.
