    Inductions

    All users are asked to complete an induction session before using the gym. They provide a great opportunity for you to meet the fitness team, learn important health and safety information, and ensure that you have the requisite knowledge about how to use our equipment.

    You may attend group exercise classes prior to your induction.

    For confident and experienced gym users a 20-30 minute express induction is available.

    Those who feel they would benefit from more thorough demonstrations and explanations can book a full hour-long induction.
