Fitness suite

One of the highlights of the leisure centre is our purpose built, state-of-the-art gym containing high-quality Technogym equipment. Our fully trained staff are on site to help with any exercises or equipment you may be unfamiliar with.

To use the Fitness Suite, you must have watched our online induction, or completed an induction with one of our gym instructors. Our expert staff can also create a personalised training programme, tailored to meet your fitness goals.

  1. Gym inductions

    Gym inductions are included in the cost of membership, where appropriate.

    Experienced gym users can watch our online induction video prior to using the fitness suite for the first time. We also offer full one hour inductions for those who are new to using the fitness suite, or 15 minute fast track inductions for those who want a brief reminder of exercises and techniques.

    You have to be 16 years old and over to use the gym.

  2. Personal training

    Adding a Personal Trainer to your workout can be a real game-changer. The motivation, expert advice and encouragement they provide is often the reason our members not only achieve, but exceed their goals. Sessions with our Personal Trainers will ensure you are getting the most out of your workouts.

    Expression of interest forms are available to fill out at reception, or simply email us on and our Personal Training co-ordinator will contact you to provide further information.
