The Fitness Suite boasts a full range of cardiovascular machines (treadmills, rowing machines, stationary bikes, stepper, cross-trainer), resistance (weight) machines for toning and strengthening all areas of the body, and a good selection of free-weights (barbells and dumbbells).
As the facility is not supervised new members have to undertake an induction session, run by Gareth Preston and costing £14.00, in order that they become familiar with the operation of all equipment. A deposit of £10.00 is also required for the electronic key fob which allows access to the club house and to the Fitness Suite itself. The booking form can be found below this text.
Normally each session is for an hour but two can be booked consecutively. At the moment because of Covid – 19 in order to maintain social distancing the sessions are fifty minutes so that members do not pass in the narrow passageway leading to the Fitness Suite.
Currently, it is expected that the Fitness Suite can be used from 12th April 2021 but only for one person at a time or a family group. To facilitate this the booking system will only accept one name per slot. When entering the building you must sanitise your hands, sign in, put a mask on and proceed to the Fitness suite. To keep every one safe please sanitise the equipment you touch before and after use. Then, remember to replace your mask before you leave the building.
Members of the Fitness Suite also have the opportunity to use the squash, tennis and badminton courts. No visitors or guests are permitted in the Fitness Suite. To join the Fitness Suite, contact the Members’ Rep (details below) , for an application form (or download).
The Fitness Suite is an unsupervised facility and all members exercise at their own risk. For this reason, users must be at least 18 years old and the Club recommends that members should not use the facility on their own.

Members should note that the club cannot provide First Aid cover when activities are taking place. Sections and individuals are therefore responsible for making their own provision. However, a basic First Aid kit is provided in the second drawer in the kitchen area in the Badminton Hall and a telephone is located in the kiosk under the stairs in the entrance foyer from which emergency 999 calls can be made.
