What Next

Once you have done this you will then be good to go to book your first workout with us, whether that be gym*, swim, group exercise classes or a strength and conditioning* session.

*It is important that all our members know how to use the gym safely prior to attending their first gym session, in order to do this we need all members to go through a gym induction with us or show us proof that they have used a gym before. You can book a gym induction on our online booking site before your first gym or strength and conditioning session Or bring proof of prior gym usage to reception before you first booking start time.

On your first visit please come to the reception to sign in rather than signing in at our fast track kiosks and we will link your membership to your student card. At that point your student card will become your gym card. You will need to take that with you on every visit from then on.

Finally, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to put a number of measures in place in order to ensure your safety during your visit to RGU SPORT.  We ask all members to please make themselves aware of these measures and watch our Welcome Back video.

While you are at RGU SPORT we ask you to respect these measures and act responsibly for your own safety as well as for the safety of others.

The staff at RGU SPORT are trained and experienced to support you to achieve what you would like to in the facility, whether that be as a beginner or an experienced facility user. If you are interested in finding out more about programmes available to you such as taking out a gym programme, or starting personal training sessions please get in touch with us directly and we can discuss these options with you.
