Gym Induction

Anyone wanting to use our gym must first take part in a gym induction with one of our qualified fitness instructors.  The induction is a session that tells you everything you need to know in order to use our gym equipment safely and appropriately.

Following your induction, if you wish 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 Fitness Freedom Membership.
