Our safe operation:

We'd firstly like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this undoubtedly frustrating period of time. Your continued support has allowed for us to ensure we maintain optimum safety in our procedures and overall operation, while of course focusing on getting your orders out as quickly and as safely as we possibly can.


Unfortunately due to Covid-19, like most workplaces, Border Express is experiencing a significant number of unplanned absences each day. Their operating facility in Tullamarine (VIC) has been affected the most and their ability to pick up and deliver freight in that depot is limited.

Their facilities and operations in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth have been disrupted by absences but not to the extent that they have experienced in Melbourne. In Sydney and in Brisbane they made deliveries over the weekend to catch up on what had been carried over during the week. They will continue to consider this option over the coming weeks as the situation evolves.

Moreover, the service in the regional network is primarily impacted by their capacity to get freight out of the capital city facilities.

We are thankful for your continued patience through this difficult trading period and we ask that you allow an additional 3 working days on top of our advertised transit times for freight travelling in to and out of Victoria.

Latest Update: Operating Conditions Update Due To Extreme Flooding In QLD and NSW.

Significant rainfall across South East QLD and the Northern Rivers of NSW is limiting Border Express's capacity to provide their pick up and delivery service. Their service is directly impacted in Bundaberg, Maryborough, Gympie, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Grafton and the Northern Rivers region of NSW.

Unfortunately, their agent facility in Lismore has been inundated by floodwater. Reportedly, the staff at this site are safe from harm however there will be stock loss that we will need to report to affected customers in due course.

Localised flooding is impacting on their staff, and the staff of their agents, being able to get to work and to perform their duties as usual. This has resulted in their service into regional locations like Townsville and Cairns also being affected.

They expect significant and widespread delays across the entire region until floodwaters begin to subside.

Thank you.


Due to the recent significant increase in Covid case numbers in NSW, we have decided to temporarily suspend showroom visits and order pick-ups until further notice, this allows us to ensure a continued safe and healthy working environment for our staff, so we can continue to serve you.

While we have had minimal disruption directly to our operations, our interstate and same day logistics partners have encountered issue and ongoing challenges such as shortage of staffs and drivers, which they are managing and working through. This has unfortunately caused some delays with delivery time frames being slightly longer than expected.

We thank you for your patience and understanding, should you need any further information, please feel free to contact us by phone, email or chat.

Thank you.

Just a reminder to everyone that due to Covid-19, our courier partners are unable to hand unload your items. If you select the 'hand-unload' delivery option, it is your full responsibility to unload the items yourself. Please consider how heavy your items are before selecting the 'hand-unload' option! We appreciate your understanding.

NSW Health has extended the Sydney lockdown until the end of September. This means Click & Collect will remain out of action until further notice. We are working extra hard to minimize any delays and will keep you guys updated as soon as something changes. Thank you for your patience!

Sanitisation & Cleanliness

Every corner of our physical location is expertly maintained by our internal team, and professional cleaners. This includes the wiping down of every surface and human touchpoint with commercial-grade sanitisers and cleaners. While we have maintained this level of deep-cleaning since the opening of our business in 2007, it was of course exacerbated with the onset of Covid-19 in Australia.

You can rest assured knowing your orders are in the best hands. Our dispatch team strictly follow every single precaution available to ensure the safest pick, pack and dispatch process possible.

Distancing & Compliance

While our showroom and Click & Collect are currently closed, we still maintain a safe physical distance between employees and third-party couriers, as per the latest government safety recommendations. We also wear masks when dealing with other people, and sanitise our hands regularly.

These procedures, in addition to employees and couriers checking-in upon arrival, are how we leave 'no stone unturned' in terms of the safe operation of Gym Direct.

Customer Service Promise

In addition to our focus on ensuring the safety of Gym Direct and its entire operation, making sure you guys are happy is among our top priorities! That's why our customer service and sales team are working extra hard to ensure all of your questions are answered, and you're as up to date as possible with your order status.

While Covid-19 has brought on delays that differ very slightly from our usual dispatch times, this is simply a result of our increased efforts to maintain a Covid-safe environment and we appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

Your questions, answered.

"How delayed are we talking?"
We can't give an exact timeframe - but if your items are in stock, however, because of large spike of covid cases across the country, as well as localised flooding, our logistic partners are experiencing significant staff shortages which have affect the dispatch and delivery of orders.

Currently, our logistic partners have advised there is an expected delay, but we are doing our best to ship all orders as fast as possible. We appreciate your understanding and patience during these challenging times

We will of course keep you updated on the status of your order in the meantime and promise that we are working hard to get orders out fast!
