In Padstow NSW on “Proposed use of existing...” at 22 Howard Road Padstow NSW 2211:

I think these complaints are a bit ridiculous. Apart from the generalisations about "singlet wearing men on steroids", what is the actual concern about having four gyms? Is it a bad thing that there is a population in Padstow that want to be fit and healthy?
As for the specific site being discussed (Civic Video/old cinema), who other than a gym would want to lease it? The amount of work required to re-purpose it to a shop would make it too expensive for a small business. Would you prefer council allowed a developer to build more apartments there? Or would you then complain about that? How about it is left as a derelict building because no one wants to lease it? Or would you complaint about that?
Seriously have a look at your comments. Complain all you like, but provide some alternative solutions. If there are too many gyms in Padstow, the market will decide as there wont be enough customers to make it viable.
As for comments about the speed bump, remember that council put speed bumps in but residents and businesses signed a petition to remove them! It is a 40km zone, if cars are speeding then take it up with the police, not council. If the residents opposite aren't happy with noise, maybe they should move out of the center of Padstow to somewhere quiet.
This is NIMBYism gone mad.
