CUSTOMISE YOUR MEMBERSHIP
RECEIVE AN INDUCTION
RUN, CYCLE, LIFT, STRETCH
Before your first workout session, a member of the gym team will provide you with a comprehensive induction so you can understand how to use all the equipment safely. You will also be shown what the interactive screens can provide for you and how to sync the Technogym Wellness app if you have a smart phone.
If you would like to use the free weights area, which we strongly recommend you do in order to maximise the benefits of the gym, you will need a specific free weights induction to ensure you have the correct posture and technique to avoid injury. The free weights area is an open training space designed for everyone to use comfortably.
You will also be introduced to the team so you are greeted by familiar faces on your next visit. Knowing our members is extremely important to us as we are there to provide advice and inspiration every time you visit.
Alternatively, you can watch our 4 minute gym induction video:
There is the option to have a free programme created for you when you join. This is extremely helpful in guiding your workout and giving you the knowledge and motivation you need to achieve your goal.
We understand that everyone is different, some members want to come to the gym and zone out with their headphones in, some want to listen to the music they have added to the virtual jukebox playlist and others want to socialise with the gym community.
You never know who you will be training with at Sport & Fitness, as it is the home of University of Birmingham Sport which has some of the country’s best athletes! An athlete’s training environment is an inspirational place to start your fitness journey as they once did.
We will hold regular new member meetings where you can meet other members in a social atmosphere and talk to the gym team who will keep you up to date with gym information and exercise trends.
