The Gym

The gym at Abertay University offers everything you need to meet your fitness goals. We have quality exercise equipment, ranging from new platforms and bars (including a safety squat bar and shrug bar) to Eleiko plates and a squat rack.

After Abertay Sport funded YMCA certified level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer training for 15 students, the gym can now also offer its members personal training and tailored exercise programmes.

The gym also has a full shower and changing facilities and can be used between lectures and tutorials.

The gym membership can be purchased through the Make a Payment page.

Membership Benefits

Gym Inductions

Gym inductions can be booked at the reception desk, and include:

  • An introduction to the facility
  • The rules for the gym and how to use the equipment

Inductions can be delivered on a group or individual basis. While we highly recommend you book an induction, if you don't book one then you accept that you use the gym, and the equipment it provides, at your own risk.

Fitness Consultations

Our staff are on hand to offer any advice or support you may need. Whether you want to tone up a little, lose a bit of weight or are training for your next marathon, feel free to run any questions you may have past the staff in the gym.
