Young People in the Gym
Our gyms aren't just for adults!

Being active and healthy changes more than just your looks - it’s great for self esteem, keeping you healthy and it’ll give you more energy. Whether you want to work towards gym accreditation or just take part in a gym-based fitness class, we've got the right pathway for you!
U16’s MUST go through the NRG Zone Accreditation process BEFORE they can access the Gym.
Accredited, S1 - 15 y/os can attend the gym at any time as long as there is a Gym

Please note that Under 16s will still have to book their gym visit in advance. All Under 16s must complete our NRG Zone accreditation to use the gym unsupervised. Under 16 Bookings will be live on our app and online booking system.
NRG Zone is the first steps on your journey into the gym. In these sessions, our expert instructors help you through our accreditation scheme. When you're ready, our instructors assess competence and discipline to use the gym without close supervision. Once completed, you're free to use the gym at any time as long as a Gym Instructor is present.
To gain gym accreditation, you have to complete a minimum of five NRG Zone sessions.
Available at Ainslie Park Leisure Centre, Craiglockhart Leisure Centre, Dalry Swim Centre, Drumbrae Leisure Centre, EICA:Ratho, Glenogle Swim Centre, Leith Victoria Swim Centre, Meadowbank Sports Centre, Portobello Swim Centre, and the Royal Commonwealth Pool.
