Basic Induction (experienced gym user)

For more experienced gym users, our 30-minute gym induction offers you the chance to be shown how to use the equipment properly, briefly discuss your goals and ways of achieving them with a qualified member of staff.

Total Induction (less experienced user)

For less experienced gym users or those looking for a bespoke programme to achieve their goals, the total induction is the perfect option. This will include a 60-minute session with a qualified instructor who will discuss your goals, exercise history, likes and dislikes and provide you with a workout programme to help achieve your goals.  

Refocus Session (follow up)

We recommend that anyone who has a total induction book a follow-up session every 4-6 weeks to review their progress and adapt their programme, so they continue to meet their goals and keep sessions interesting.
