Get fit for less
Our gym and fitness studio is open to the public, boasting memberships at competitive prices. The facilities are part of a recent redevelopment investment, which has also seen state-of-the-art equipment installed on campus, including the Advanced Technology Centre.
The gym and fitness studio offers a range of amenities to help you improve fitness and enjoy physical activities, all of which are run by Level 2 apprentices, giving them the opportunity to manage a varied commercial facility.
The facilities range from specialist weight areas to cardio equipment, suiting everyone’s experience and abilities. Access to the College gym comes with no contract and no hidden costs, with an amazingly low one-off induction fee of £10 and just £7.50 per month. A range of fitness classes including Spinning and Circuit Training are also available at only £3 per class.
Sport and Fitness Lecturer, Jenny Fenwick, comments on the facilities, “Having the gym run by our apprentices is a great opportunity for them to take ownership and contribute to the running of the facilities. The apprentices organise and run the classes which is a fantastic experience for them.”
