Becoming a Wellness Member
We offer an especially discounted Wellness Membership for people with additional needs* at a rate of £20 per month with a £15 joining fee or £200 charged annually without a joining fee.
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
- Personal Training: the member can book Personal Training sessions for one2one training
