Use of the Facilities
Before using any exercise equipment you must read and sign the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire and have a supervised induction session, which must be booked in advance. We can refuse access to the centre’s facilities if we consider your health may be adversely affected by the use of such facilities. In these circumstances, you will be granted membership once you have obtained a letter from your GP permitting you to exercise. If you have a medical condition that may affect your use of the gym, we advise you to speak to a member of our team before committing to membership. As a private members club, we may refuse a membership application without reason.
