Discover more about each step

Step One: Lets GET STARTED!

First, we talk through your reasons for joining, discuss your aspirations and set some SMART goals to work towards.

Next, we’ll work together to identify any barriers that may get in the way of achieving those goal, and look at how we can help you find time to visit the centre.

Finally, we'll complete a complementary health and fitness check; including taking some key body metrics that will enable us to track your progress throughout your journey.


What are SMART goals? 

SMART goals help us identify what you want to achieve, and make sure they are attainable. Here are some examples:

  • Specific: I want to lose body fat 
  • Measurable. I want to drop down two dress/trouser sizes 
  • Attainable. I’d like to lose half a stone in 6 weeks 
  • Relevant. I want to walk-up hills without being out of breath 
  • Time Specific. I’d like to lose the weight before my summer holiday


Building your plan

At the end of the meeting, we’ll have everything we need to design your fitness plan. We'll book in a 45 min follow up session to run you through the plan. 

In the meantime, we offer some advice on exercises you could do whilst we create your plan.



Step Two: Lets GET ACTIVE!

Next, we’ll book in a short 'Get Active’ session to run through your fitness plan. Together we will:

  • Walk through each part of your fitness plan
  • Answer any questions you have on your plan
  • Show you how to use the relevant equipment
  • Set you up on the ActiveWellness app
  • Help you track your activities on the ActiveWellness app


What to expect from your GET ACTIVE session 

Having built your fitness plan, we’ll now walk through each stage of it, and explain why it matches your SMART goals we identified in our first meeting. From there we’ll head straight to the gym floor to make sure you know how to use any of the equipment you need to reach your goals. 


Where can I find my fitness plan? 

We’ll build your plan into the Active Wellness app allowing you to see you plan on the move.  

Active Wellness also allows you to record any of your activity in the centre or when you are out and about giving a complete picture of your fitness.  

Don’t worry – we'll show you how to find, use and track your new fitness plan on the day. 

Not downloaded the Active Wellness app? 

You can download it here. We can help you set up the rest on the day.


What to bring to your Get Active session 

We’ll work through your fitness plan so come prepared to work out, and bring a towel and a drink. 

After just 45 minutes you’ll be ready to start your new fitness plan! 


We’re here to support you every step of the way, and to help we recommend a scheduling a check in after 6-8 weeks. 


Your review

During this time we’ll review your progress, what’s working and what isn’t and then adapt your plan to help you achieve your goals. 

Taking the time to understand what’s been a success, and what’s been more of a challenge. This could include: 

  • Keeping things fresh by introducing new exercises 
  • Discussing the benefits of group exercise 
  • Looking at new activities that would complement your goals


Updating your plan

We’ll build any changes to your fitness plan into Active Wellness so you can get going straight away. Simple. 

Ahead of your Get Started session think about

  • What do you want to get from your membership?

  • How often do you think you can attend the centre?

  • What type of exercise are you interested in doing?
