Junior Gym Certification - Gym Access for Under 16s

NRG Zone is our gym accreditation programme for young people from S1 up to 15 years old. 

Our hour-long sessions are led by an expert instructor who will teach you everything you need to know in order to safely and effectively work out in the gym. You'll be shown how to use all the equipment, and be taught proper form to perform exercises.

NRG Zone focuses on cardio, weights machines and bodyweight functional exercises.

Once your instructor is confident that you’re ready, you will go through the accreditation test process, and, if successful, you will be able to attend the gym out with NRG Zone sessions as long as there is a Gym Instructor present. You must complete a minimum of five NRG Zone sessions to be eligible for accreditation.

NRG Zone is included in our Junior Fitness membership, which is only £14.99 a month. With this membership, you'll also have access to swimming, climbing, golf and fitness classes (conditions apply).

U16s MUST go through the NRG Zone Accreditation process BEFORE they can access the gym. Once accredited, U16s can attend the gym at any time as long as there is a Gym Instructor present.

Juniors must be in S1 or above to enter the gym.
