Before you use our gym, you will need to have an induction with one of our fitness instructors so that we can help you achieve your fitness goals.

During the induction you will discuss your goals, learn how to use the equipment safely and effectively, and get a personalised exercise programme. 

At CSAC you will receive a Technogym key with your programme on, which allows you to use the equipment in the gym. You will also have access to the My Wellness App, where you can follow your progress.   

If you lose your Technogym Key you will need to pay to replace it.   

Our instructors are on hand every time you come to use the gym, to answer any questions, or update your programme.
