Gym

Our fully equipped, air-conditioned gym offers a range of fitness equipment for
everyone. Our members can choose from cardiovascular machines such as
treadmills and rowers, resistance equipment including free weights and dedicated
stretching areas and fitness aids such as Swiss balls.

For a fitness programme tailored to your needs, just ask a Better fitness instructor
and they'll be happy to put together a workout to suit you.

Before using the gym you'll need to complete an induction, so our fitness
instructors can check you are well enough to train. As well this gives you the
opportunity to get advice about other activities the centre may offer which could
help you achieve your fitness goals.

Re-focus sessions are available to you at any time, where our fitness instructors
will mix up your fitness programme. Did you know that keeping your workout more
varied and challenging will actually keep you much fitter?

Personal Training

Our personal trainers provide exercise programmes for all areas of general fitness,
and are there to give you all the motivation and support you need to achieve your
goals.

Your trainer will design a progressive training workout just for you. They'll select
the appropriate loads, reps, sets and sequence of exercises, ensuring your time is
best spent, giving much better results than if you were training alone. They'll also
offer nutritional and lifestyle advice.

Workouts will be challenging, educational yet fun, and hopefully you'll find the
experience has a positive effect on your whole life!

All Better personal trainers have REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) level 3
qualifications or equivalent, which is the required national standard.

Creche Play & Learn

Creche Play & Learn for under 5's gives you the chance to take part in leisure
activities, knowing your children are well-cared for. You can leave your child for
up to 2 hours. Booking is essential and places are limited so we are afraid any no-shows (including Prepaid members) will result in the full charge being made.
Our Creche Play & Learn is Ofsted registered. This means that the Creche is
regulated and inspected to ensure the care of the children who attend is of an
excellent standard.
