Take Your Online Gym Induction

Congratulations on becoming a member of the Sports Centre. Next you'll need to watch an online induction. Inductions are recommended for all new members of the Sports Centre who wish to use the gyms. You'll also need to familiarise yourself with the Health Commitment Statement and then you can start using the centre.

Inductions are designed to teach you to use the equipment in a safe and effective manner. All membership categories include inductions where necessary and equipment as required.

Safe for all

We all want the gym to be safe, clean and ready to use at all times, so it's important that everyone is aware of the rules.

Gym inductions are important to you as a user and to us as staff; they ensure that you understand the rules and regulations for using the gyms and that you will be safe whilst using the equipment. They also ensure that everyone knows what is expected of them when using the facilities, so that everybody is safe and that the equipment is not misused and damaged.

We do not expect that you will know everything and if, at any time, you would like to be reminded how to get the most from the equipment, or you would like to be given help in the form of a training programme or advice about training or technique please do not hesitate to ask the instructors who will be glad to help.

Choose the online induction that's right for you

We offer two types of induction online, depending on your experience. The fast track induction is designed for experienced gym users and will inform you of our rules and gym etiquette. The full induction will help those who have limited or no experience within a gym. This induction will guide users through using our equipment and inform you of our gym etiquette.

Step 1.

Choose the video that is most appropriate to you. The full induction video is recommended and will take just 20 mins to watch. Experienced gym users may wish to watch the fast-track video instead.

Step 2.

The Health Commitment Statement a mutual delcaration of commitment both from the Sports Centre to our gym users and from the user to the Sports Centre and lays out any expectation, rules and guidance to keep everybody safe whilst using the facilities.
