Gym induction

Before using the gym, you must attend an induction with a member of staff.  

Inductions are free, and will generally take anything from 15 minutes to one hour depending on your previous experience.  

During your induction, the instructor will go through the safe operation of the equipment and help you to become familiar with the gym.  

  • Inductions can be carried out at any of our leisure facilities, although we recommend you book your induction at the facility you intend to use the most.
  • You only need one induction, even if you intend to use the gyms at more than one of our leisure facilities.
  • If you have any special needs, please let us know what they are at the time of booking, as we may need to adapt the session to support your needs. 
  • Please come dressed to exercise.

To book an induction, please contact any of our leisure facilities by phone or ask at reception.

You can call Temple Park Centre on 0191 456 9119.
