On joining the club, we will take your photograph on your 1st or 2nd visit and make-up a computerised membership card with your photo on it. You will need to bring this card with you each visit and swipe it through the scanner on the front desk on arrival at the Club…this is in order to validate your membership…the receptionist will help you with this if you have any problems…you are only required to swipe your card once per visit!
Lockers are provided for the convenience of all our members! For security reasons please do not leave your personal belongings anywhere else in the changing rooms. Lockers are secured by padlocks, which members are required to provide…padlocks can be purchased from Club reception.
Please do not leave your personal belongings in the lockers overnight… any items left in the lockers will be removed each night to lost property!
Your Fitness Instructor will discuss your exercise and medical history and also check your blood pressure on your first session…this is standard practice and nothing to worry about…all information is treated in the strictest confidence. The Fitness Instructor needs to know if you have any aches, pains or injuries, or any other medical considerations which could affect what you do in the gym. Your Fitness Instructor will also discuss how much exercise you have done in the past and what you would like to achieve from your new fitness programme.
You will then spend some time in the gym using the exercise machines…don’t worry! the Fitness Instructor will show you all you need to know and everything will be done at your own pace…if you don’t like a particular activity or exercise simply tell the Fitness Instructor, you’re more likely to continue with a routine you like!
As well as your sportswear and trainers you need to bring a small gym towel to use while you workout, this is essential… we also recommend you bring a drinks bottle which you can fill up from the water fountain on the gym floor, alternatively, you can buy a bottle of mineral water from reception or the Clubs Café bar. Remember to bring a separate towel if you plan to shower after your workout. Towels can also be hired from reception if you prefer! You will also need to bring your swimwear if you want to use the Sauna and Steam rooms.
Sportswear and trainers…no need to go out and buy the latest lycra outfit, wear whatever you feel comfortable in, T-shirt and tracksuit bottoms or shorts and sweatshirt…we have a non intimidating and relaxed atmosphere at the Club it’s not a fashion parade…good clean trainers are a must!
