Frequently asked questions
How much is it to join?
Our membership fee is £25, a one-off payment, and as long as you keep training, you will never pay it again. If you have more than a year of non-attendance, your membership will expire, and you will be required to pay it again. Your subs can be paid on a pay-as-you-go bias at £6.50 a week or £4 a session, or you can pay monthly via standing order for £22.
Is there a contract?
Nope. Pay as you train means you only pay for when you use the club. If you know, you will train regularly, set up a standing order. You are in charge of a standing order and can start and stop it without penalties.
Do I need to join?
No, you can pay as a non-member at £9 a week or £30 a month.
Are there any other benefits to being a member?
Yes! All members are entitled to regular program review and training advice at no extra cost. We also use a PT Hub app, where you can track your food diary, create training programs and set your goals.
What are your opening times?
Monday to Thursday, we open from 7.30 am to 9 pm, Friday from 7.30 am to 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 4 pm.
Will someone show me what to do?
All new members get a gym introduction where we sit down with you and find out your goals and how we can help you achieve them; we then write you a program for you to follow. We will supervise your first workout, so you can tell us how the program feels.
Do I need to book in to look around or join?
We advise you to call ahead first so we can show you around the club and answer any of your questions. If you want to join and you have lots of experience training in gyms and therefore don’t want a gym intro, we will need 15 minutes to join you up, and a full gym intro and program takes an hour, so making an appointment will guarantee we are available for you.
When is it busy?
Like all gyms, we are busy at peak times, usually just after the school run and between 5 pm and 7 pm. We have plenty of equipment to use, so there will always be something you can do.
I’m really unfit; does this matter?
Your fitness level is not essential as you join the gym to get fitter. If you have underlying health problems, we recommend you speak to your GP before joining because if we deem you to be at risk of increasing your activity, we will ask you to see your GP first.
What if I am too fat for the machines?
This question is common, and I can assure you this is never a problem! But we understand your fear, so we recommend a gym introduction first so a gym instructor can show you the most comfortable machines for your use. As time passes and your confidence grows, you will be excited to try new machines.
I have underlying health problems such as diabetes/heart disease/high blood pressure.
Most people have these underlying health problems because they don’t exercise enough, and moving their bodies will be the best thing they can do. But some conditions are not stable and require close monitoring, so we ask you to inform your GP that you are about to take up an exercise program before your first session. Most GPs will be thrilled to hear you are ready to take control of your health.
Is everyone young and fit?
We have members of all ages, shapes and sizes that train; some members are teens through to their 70s. Looking fit and being fit are not the same, so don’t let people’s appearances fool you.
