Gym Options for Young People

If you’re from S1 to age 15, you can still use Ainslie Park's gym. In our NRG Zone sessions, you can learn to use the gym with expert instructors in a structured and safe environment. Once you’ve completed a minimum of five sessions, you can become accredited in our gyms to work out with minimal supervision.

If you’re not interested in doing this, you can do one of our Youth Circuit classes, which you can drop into without getting accreditation.
