Starting out on your fitness journey can be daunting but don't forget everyone was a beginner once.

One of the easiest ways to get started is to join in on a group fitness class. Depending on what you enjoy, you could head along to a Zumba, Pump or Stretch and Release class.

It’s likely you won’t be the only beginner in the class and having others around means you never feel alone. Talk to the trainer before the class starts, they’ll keep an eye on you and make sure you’re being safe in your movements. 

Aqua fitness

Don't forget how fun and challenging water workouts are. Come along to one of our aqua classes for a guided workout with others, or pop in to swim some laps at your own pace if you prefer.

Fitness centre membership

If you would rather work out within your own schedule we suggest booking in a time with one of our qualified instructors. Included as part of the fitness membership they are able to write up a free programme tailored to your goals.

When it's time for you to progress further, your programme can be updated to help keep up motivation. Our instructors can answer any questions you have and show you how to use the gym equipment so that you feel more confident on your own.

It won’t be long before you start feeling the benefits of a routine and feeling more familiar with the equipment around you.
