Gym Induction

All new members are strongly advised to take part in a basic gym induction. If you have used a gym before, we would still urge you to have an induction as all equipment varies. The free induction is included in your membership package.

Free Personal Fitness Programmes

We would encourage all members to book in with one of our friendly instructors for a personalised fitness programme. Our instructors will work with you to design a program to meet your needs and help you achieve your goals. We recommend that your programme is reviewed every 6-8 weeks. This will encourage you to continue with your fitness and wellbeing experience, and provide fresh motivation. Our Personal Fitness programmes are included in your membership.

Classes

We offer a variety of fitness classes each week to strengthen, relax and revive your body and mind. Push yourself to the limit in one of our group Spin Classes or high intensity Classes. Or if you prefer a gentler approach, why not try a mat based class like Yoga or Pilates.

A timetable is including in the pack. Booking is always advisable for all classes. You can book a class by using our app, in person through our Reception or by calling 01530 413330. Our fitness classes are also open to non-members – so feel free to bring along your friends.

If it is your first time in a class, please let our instructor know, they will be able to advise on the
class format and give you any other information you may need.

Personal Training

Want to tone up or lose weight quickly? Build muscle? Get your pre-baby figure back? Need help to recover from an injury or build core strength?

We offer a variety of Personal Training (PT) packages to all our members. Speak to a member of our team for more information or to book your free 30-minute PT trial session. A personal trainer is solely focused on you and your specific goals. This will help you focus and get the desired results quick.

Your trainer will dedicate their time to get to know you and develop an individual programme for you, based on your body and goals. And it’s not just exercise, food plays a massive part too. We have qualified nutrition coaches on our team who can develop a bespoke food plan for you and offer advice on your lifestyle/diet.

Transformation Plans

The Fitness Republic Body Transformation Plans are exercise and nutritional plans tailored to suit you. A Transformation Plan builds on the PT programmes and includes a bespoke holistic wellbeing package to meet your needs. They are designed to help you reach your goals by considering your body type, nutritional likes and requirements, and by keeping you motivated and accountable. During the program, you will learn how to exercise correctly, what types of food are beneficial to your
progress and how to maintain your new lifestyle.

You will meet with your Personal Trainer 1-3 times a week in order to perform your specific workouts. Exactly how often you will train will be decided before you embark upon the plan as this depends upon individual goals and lifestyle. In addition to your personal training sessions, you would be expected to do 1 to 2 sessions on your own. These can be conducted either in the gym, at home or you could join one of our fantastic fitness classes.

Ask at reception or email info@fitnessrepublic.co.uk for more information on our bespoke Transformation Plans.
