Find out more about the fantastic new equipment we have added to our gym, including equipment from Technogym, Keiser, Exigo and Primal Strength.

Before you use our gym, you will need to have an induction with one of our gym 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.

You will need to book a gym induction by calling 01245 605666


  • Monthly members: £13
  • ourChelmsford Lite card holders: £26
  • ourChelmsford Plus card holders: £26
  • Once you have had your induction, you do not need to book to attend the gym.
  • If you have an ourChelmsford Premium membership with an ourChelmsford card, you can tap straight through the barrier.

Our brand new fast track entry

We have a brand-new fast track entry pod to make checking in for your gym sessions and classes quicker and easier. 

Simply tap your phone on the top of the new check-in pod when you arrive and you'll automatically be checked in without having to go to reception.

You must have the free Chelmsford City Sports app to use the pod. Membership cards and wrist fobs will not work on the check in pod.

The pods look like this:

Tall white pod next to white pillar

On top of the pod there will be a check-in tile that says "tap or scan for access".

Tap or scan for access
  • Open the Chelmsford City Sports app on your phone. You must be logged into the app to use the pod.
  • On the app homepage, there will be a button that says "Check in."
  • Click the check in button. Your phone camera will open. You can scan the QR code or tap your phone on the tile to check in.
