Can anybody recommend a good gym in Melbourne?

I'm looking to take some classes (spin, pilates or Zumba) and maybe even work with a personal trainer to increase my fitness levels/ get in shape for my best friend's wedding. I live in Hawthorn and work on Exhibition Street in the city and I'd really appreciate it if anyone could recommend a good affordable gym or trainer close to those areas. Thanks!

The 24/7 options I am aware are below very similar to each other and all have various locations across Melbourne. It is most likely there will be one close to you. They are great for convenient access but not good for variety in a workout as most don’t have classes and if they do they are not very good.
