The east coast of Australia has been battered by floods in the past month including parts of south-east Queensland, the north coast of NSW and Sydney, resulting in the death of more than 20 people and more than 20,000 houses destroyed.
Group fitness manager at d2f and Cityfit, Bev Glen, said people can donate online or in person.
"We've decided to do a fundraiser for flood relief," she said.
"We realise everything happening up north, we just wanted to give a bit of support and we decided to do it the weekend we're doing our launch for the LesMills Program.
"We're asking for a gold coin donation and we're trying to raise as much money as possible.
"We encourage people to donate and non-members are encouraged to participate as well."
Promotion and marketing at d2f and Cityfit, Matty Power, said people can donate by either a gold coin donation or online.
