  • Term time is busier than holiday periods
  • You might expect to wait up to 10mins for a piece of equipment - be courteous and work in with others please!
  • If you are at all able to come to the gym outside of these times, you will have a pretty easy run on the equipment, especially in the mornings! Your workout time could be halved if you change the time of day you exercise!
  • Consider our extensive group fitness timetable classes as an alternative for cardio or weights - the majority of our classes are designed for low co-ordination levels and classes such as HIIT30 and Supercircuit are great substitutes for all round workouts where intensity is your goal.
