Gym Opening Times
Anyone wanting to use our gyms must first take part in a gym induction with one of our qualified fitness instructors. The induction is an hour long session that tells you everything you need to know in order to use our gym equipment safely and appropriately. Following your induction, your fitness instructor will design a programme specifically to meet your personal health and fitness goals. The instructor will also advise you on how often they will review your personal programme.
Please contact us directly to book a gym induction for a time that suits you. Gym inductions are free when you take out a Gym or Active Leisure Plus Membership.
You can make great savings and enjoy many benefits by taking out a 12 month gym membership, you can pay for your membership upfront, or you can set up a monthly direct debit payment at no extra cost. Find out more about this and our other membership packages on the membership page.
1-2-1 Training Sessions
1-2-1 Training Sessions are ideal if you're looking to give your training a kick start! Get a personal session with one of our highly qualified fitness instructors to help motivate and progress you onto a whole new level of fitness.
Health and Fitness Assessment
Our Health and Fitness Assessment supplements the personal programme that you are given as part of your gym induction. It provides more detailed information about your fitness levels and body statistics. We can then recommend a course of exercise to put you on the road to successful weight loss and increasing your strength and fitness levels.
If you are new to the gym, looking to lose weight or simply want to gain strength, then a health and fitness assessment with one of our gym instructors is ideal (charges apply).
