I have never attended a gym before. How will I know what to do and how to exercise safely?
Most people that join a gym don’t have any prior knowledge, so you are not alone! For this reason, as a new Health Club member, our experienced Health and Fitness Consultants will lead you through a one hour Health Evaluation session to determine your level of fitness and wellbeing, help you establish your health and fitness goals and assist your Consultant in developing a program specifically tailored to meet your needs. Following this, your consultant will run through another one hour Program Start session, guiding you through exercises, with step by step instructions for each piece of equipment and the best ways to use these.
