  • Not share your membership fob with anyone.
  • Attend an induction if you are a wheelchair user or are under 18 years old.
  • Strongly consider attending a gym induction/tour before using the gym for the first time as you are then more likely to achieve your goals. Inductions/tours are offered weekly by our personal trainers and can be booked with any staff member.
  • Use antibacterial wipes provided to wipe down equipment you have used and dispose of properly.
  • Not take bags onto the gym floor. 
  • Not make or receive phone calls on the gym floor.

  • Replace equipment back onto the racks after you have finished with it.
  • Not drop or throw weights down on the floor, including in the free weights area.
  • Not leave your belongings in a locker when you are not on the premises. We regularly will remove items left in lockers overnight and donate to charity if not collected after 48 hours of removal.

  • Wear suitable clothing and footwear when exercising. Denim, bare feet, flip-flops, boots or a bare torso are not allowed.

The Cooperage Green is the allocated parking for the gym but marina visitors also may use North Meadow visitors parking if staying for less than 4 hours.
