Wellness members can additionally access the assisted session programme.

There are 3 levels of assistance:

  • Unassisted: the member will work out on their own
  • Assisted: the member will use the gym at specific times of the day (determined by each Centre) when a fitness instructor is timetabled to be available to assist the member (this is not a 1-1 session, simply a helping hand every now and then). The price is included in the Inclusive membership or Inclusive Pay As You Go fee
