Should I get a Better Health local membership if I’m a beginner at the gym?

If you’re a fitness beginner, a local Better Health membership is a great option. It’s one of our great value Better Health membership options, so it can be good for first timers, but still includes access to all facilities, classes and expert trainers all in your local centre.
