Whether you’re taking the first steps on your fitness journey or you’re looking to stay in shape, you’ll find everything you need at Hendon’s Better gym.
We know that everybody’s different – and we all have our own goals, which is why we offer loads of different types of training and support. At our gym facilities you can get fit and raise your heart rate with cardio and functional area upstairs, or build your strength and stamina in strength training area downstairs.
If you’re going to be using the fitness centre, a 1-2-1 induction with one of our trained Fitness Instructors is required, who will help tailor a bespoke gym experience based on your specific needs, as well as introducing you to the different types of machines and equipment. (An opt out option is available - subject to conditions).
Our staff are keen to share their wealth of knowledge and expertise to help put you at ease when discussing your goals and planning your regular exercise routine.
Our facilities are staffed, so you are never far from help and support if you need it. Just ask a member of the Health & Fitness Team on the fitness centre floor, or a member of staff anywhere in the building. We are always happy to help.
Joining a gym is a huge step for most of us. To help ensure you stick to your routine and meet your goals, we are here to help keep you on track with a re-focus session.
Every six weeks we will offer you the opportunity to re-evaluate your progress with a Fitness Instructor and mix up your programme to keep challenging your body and stop your routine becomming stale.
The session is a good opportunity to assess what's going well, what could be improved, plus your workout preferences will all be taken into account to reinvigorate your fitness experience.
So whatever your goals, Hendon Leisure Centre and its knowledgeable staff are there to support you.
As part of our junior health & fitness membership we offer junior gym sessions where Juniors can use all cardio machines, Resistance machines,functional equipment and perform body weight exercises.
These supervised sessions are an excellent starting point for any child wishing to get fit and active in safe surroundings.
These sessions are aimed at children aged 11-17 years and are run 4 days a week so there's no excuse to miss a session.
We require all users to complete an induction with a member of the fitness team, where your child will be inducted into safe use of our equipment. From there, your child can attend any session they wish on a casual basis or they can take advantage of our junior health & fitness membership - click on link below for membership options.
