How to get started at a new gym

Book your free induction 

Here at Active, we feel it’s important to make sure our members feel comfortable when joining us. We also like to know that they are educated enough to use all the equipment safely and effectively. We offer everyone a free induction. During this, a fitness qualified member of staff will show you around and how to use the equipment correctly. This is the perfect opportunity to ask the member of staff any questions about the gym or your training. If you have a specific injury or a certain style of training you prefer we can advise you on what’s best to do for you as an individual.

Try a class

Classes are a great way to meet others at the gym! It also gives you the opportunity to have some guidance in your workout. We have fitness professionals teaching our classes. They will give you encouragement throughout and also advice you on how to perform each exercise correctly. This is a great opportunity to take note of what exercises you like doing so you can do them in your own workouts. Chat to others in the class and make some new gym buddies!

Bring a friend 

Sometimes training alone at a new gym can be daunting, we understand! This is one of the many reasons why we provide a free gym pass to new members, this means you can bring a friend to try a class or to use the gym with you. Click here to apply for our free pass. If you’re already a member and encourage a friend to join, we offer a friend referral scheme meaning you save money on your monthly payments. Ask our staff for more information.
