It is compulsory for you to go through the University accreditation process to gain access to our facilities which is provided by qualified instructors and is tailored specifically to the Fitness Centre. This complies with health and safety legislation.

Do I need to bring anything to the Induction?

The accreditation is partly active, so you will need to be wearing gym clothes such as tracksuit and trainers. (Please do not come in jeans or shoes). You will get to try the equipment and ask questions, some people will take notes during this session, or make notes of the correct machines settings for future reference.

A water bottle and towel is also recommended.
