Either telephone or visit in person. An induction is required before you can use
the equipment at the club and will take around one hour to complete. It consists
of an instructor showing a group of up to six people how to operate the equipment
safely. There is an opportunity to try the machines after the induction with the
instructor on hand.
You are shown the various exercises that can be carried out as well as detailing

This is an optional service available to all gym users during their gym membership. The programme involves an instructor taking the client’s blood pressure
and engaging in a lifestyle consultation, for example, medical & exercise history,
and goals and aims. Following this, the instructor then establishes a workout tailored
to suit the goals and needs of the individual. They are taken through their workout
from start to finish to ensure that it is suitable.
Depending on the individuals goals, the instructor will ensure a warm up/down, stretch,
cardiovascular and/ or conditioning work are included in the programme. All details
of the workout are transferred onto a plan that remains in the gym for future reference.
Exercise programmes can be upgraded and altered at any time or as soon as the individual
begins to feel their training becoming less demanding.
