A valid membership card will need to be produced prior to starting your chosen activity. Your membership card cannot be used by anyone else and can only be used by the member associated with that card.
All customers are required to complete a physical activity readiness questionnaire (PAR-Q) prior to being issued a membership card. If you haven't any gym experience you will be required to book a Gym Intro session with one of our Personal Trainers. This costs £25 and will give you the knowledge to ensure safe and effective use of the equipment and to get the most from your workouts. If you are a confident gym user you will be required to sign a disclaimer when you sign up.
All monthly recurring payments shall be paid from a valid debit or credit card (American Express is not accepted). Credits, weekly, monthly passes and annual memberships can be paid for in cash, cheque or card.
On the recurring payment options there is no minimum term contract and you can cancel your membership at any time. To cancel your membership you need to email us through the contacts page on our website giving one payments notice. We will cancel your membership from the end of the month of your final payment.
Annual memberships, week and month passes and credits do not automatically renew so there is no need to cancel these. Credits are valid for 12 months and all unused credits expire 12 months after purchase.
Under normal circumstances no refunds will be issued. If you require a refund you will need to write or email explaining your reasons, contacts are as below.
Changes to Programme
Changes to advertised opening hours may occur from time to time. This may be due to breakdowns, refurbishments, bank holidays or staff sickness. Every effort will be made to minimise disruptions and to advertise changes in advance. There will be no refund in membership fees during these changes. Changes to classes may occur and classes may be cancelled either as a one off at short notice or cancelled on a permanent basis. No refunds in membership will be issued if and when a class is cancelled.

Members will receive a minimum of 1 months notice of any changes to the membership fees.
