Gym Membership

Our membership packages are affordable and flexible and, best of all, contract free

Our membership packages are great value for money. We've tailored them to make fitness and well-being activities accessible to everyone. We have pay as you go options, a partnership with PayasUgym and we also offer concessions and corporate memberships.

You can now save money on our memberships by signing up to Direct Debit. Once you have chosen your package from the options below, sign up now.

All new members will receive a gift pack when they first join the gym. This includes a drawstring bag, T-shirt and a drinks bottle.

Access for PayasUgym members

The Academy of Sport has partnered with PayasUgym to give the general public who do not have a membership with the Academy of Sport, but have a PayasUgym pass, access to our gym facilities.

If you are a PayasUgym member, complete a casual user form on your first visit to the Academy. Alternatively download and complete the Casual User form (PDF File 89 KB) and email it to us at sportscentre@lsbu.ac.uk, so your details can be added to our database for quicker access to our gym.

Concessionary membership rates are available at the Academy. To qualify for the concessionary rate clients must provide evidence that they are eligible. Evidence must be dated within one month of the joining date, if applicable.

One of the following documents must be provided:

  • Job Seekers Allowance
  • Housing Benefit
  • Council Tax Benefit
  • Incapacity Benefit
  • Income Support

For senior citizens (60 plus):

  • Proof of date of birth must be provided (i.e. passport or drivers licence).

Book a personal trainer

To ensure that you are getting the most out of your membership and your sessions, we recommend that you get some professional guidance from us. On-going personal training is available to support your exercise routine with fitness expertise, and provide you with continuous feedback and accountability.

Our team of qualified personal trainers are available to guide you through a successful physical, physiological and psychological journey, helping you reach your fitness goals and needs. Personal trainer sessions are available from £26 per hour, or £15 for a 30 minute session.

Alternatively, a one-off personal exercise programme can be prescribed to help you achieve your goals. You will spend a few minutes answering some standard questions regarding your fitness goals and objectives. From there one of our personal trainers will write you a detailed exercise programme and guide you through it to ensure you are familiar with all of its components. A personal programme booking lasts for one hour and is charged at £26 for all members.

Hire a locker

Lockers can be hired for a period of 3 months at a cost of £31 or 12 months for £67. The first payment is subject to a £25 deposit, which is returned upon completion of the locker hire period, providing the locker is not damaged and the key is returned.
