Gym support

To familiarise you with the gym and to get to know your goals we'd like to offer you a short group introduction to the gym. This can be booked with a member of the team when you join or at a later date via our website.

One-to-one support sessions can be booked with a member of the gym team. The sessions last 45 minutes and are chargeable.  

You are also welcome to book one free 15 minute programme review a month, just speak to a member of our team.

Our gyms are not always manned, but rest assured support is never far away. Our equipment is labeled with QR codes, which when scanned, provide you a video tutorial. Also look out for our latest workout boards in the gym, with a scannable code showcasing the latest workout to try.

Wellbeing Suite


The Wellbeing suite is specifically designed to help our members that live with chronic conditions such as MS, fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis – as well as individuals recovering from serious illness, surgery or injury. 

The studio has a variety of power-assisted machines, which support your body’s movement by working with you rather than against you. With the ability to increase or decrease the level of resistance or support, the toning tables offer a good full-body workout for those looking to get back into fitness.
