There’s no need to invest in top brand high spec kit. Just choose something cool and comfortable. Leggings or joggers and a t shirt that you feel comfortable in. It’s really not a fashion parade – you’ll be hot and sweaty, so practicality is more important than anything!

Everyone gets an induction in the gym to show you round the equipment and demonstrate how to use it safely and effectively. The PT will gear their tour of the gym to your needs and abilities.

The most important thing is a bottle of water to keep you hydrated. Some people also like to bring a towel to wipe away any sweat.

You can expect some attainable results with a couple of sessions a week, but may then prefer to increase sessions for faster progress. It is so rewarding to see your body respond that many people end up coming more than they’d ever expected.

Yes, absolutely. Please feel free to book a tour. You’ll get to see our fitness studio – it’s small, friendly, non-scary but very well-equipped. You’ll also meet one of our personal trainers, who can answer any questions and put your mind at rest. Just call to arrange an appointment.
