What is Junior Gym?
Junior gym is a dedicated session for children between 11 and 17 years old to introduce them to working out in the gym and help them start their journey towards a healthy and active lifestyle. All sessions are supervised, with a member of the Fitness team present, to ensure they are working out safely. Membership also includes access to our Junior Fitness Classes that take place on the gym floor during the allocated sessions. Keeping everyone fit, active and healthy is important to us, so we want to ensure we offer a variety of fun activities. Sessions are included in the monthly membership or can be booked on a pay-as-you-go basis. All juniors are required to attend Junior Gym Induction before their first session.
Junior Gym days and times:
Monday - Friday: 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Saturday & Sunday: 9am - 5pm
All juniors are required to book and attend a junior gym induction before attending the first junior gym sessions. Junior inductions are conducted by our level 2 qualified Fitness Instructors in small groups of no more than five people and are 30 minutes long. During the inductions, our Instructors will go over all health & safety information about the gym, explain the gym etiquette, demonstrate the equipment that juniors are allowed to use during the sessions, and show how to use it safely.
Junior Gym inductions take place 11am - 4pm every weekend
Adult & Child Gym Sessions
Would you like to bring your child to the gym for free?
Our Adult and Junior Gym sessions allow our pre-paid adults to bring a child to the gym for free. The booking must be made by an adult who books the Adult and Junior gym session with their membership. Juniors must be supervised by the adults at all times. Adult and junior gym sessions are available weekends 3-5pm. The adult must actually supervise the junior at all points, and must take responsibility for the child. Only children between 11-17 are permitted into these sessions. The session is limited to one child per adult. If the adult isn’t supervising the child or the child misuses or misbehaves the both parties may be asked to leave.
