‌Free Weights Induction – New to ‘pumping iron’?

The Free Weights Induction shows you how to get the most from this more specific and 'natural' form of training. 

Our dedicated coaches will help individuals who are following a sport-specific programme to optimise performance. The induction also covers the equipment in the Plate-Loaded Room. The Free Weights induction takes about 45-60 minutes and is free to members.

Free Weights Accreditation – Experienced Fast Track

To use the Free Weights Room, those users experienced in the safe and effective use of free weights can go through an accreditation with one of our qualified strength and conditioning coaches. It is expected that users are already competent in the fundamental lifts such as deadlift, squats, bench, spotting, and warm-up and cool down. The Accreditation takes about 10-15 minutes and is free to our members and costs £5.00 for non-members - this also covers your entry fee for the session. During the first few weeks of term, we will be able to do accreditations with you on an ad hoc basis from 10.30am in the morning until 4.30pm

To book any of the above options please visit or call the Sports Centre Reception on 01970 622280 or email
