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.
