Before you use our gym, you will have an induction with one of our fitness instructors so that we can help you achieve your fitness goals. 

During the induction you will discuss your goals, learn how to use the equipment safely and effectively, and get a personalised exercise programme. 

Our instructors are on hand every time you come to use the gym, to answer any questions, or update your programme. 

You can book your gym induction by calling 01245 605600
