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.
