ALL sessions will now need to be pre-booked before your arrival via our online booking system. All sessions are one hour long and after each session we will have a 15 minute break to allow us to clean down the equipment and ensure there is a clear change over between sessions. To access the gym you will now need a key fob, some of these were issued before our closure. If you have not had one of this, you will need to book an appointment with reception to receive one.
At Oxley we have a modern gym with easy to use equipment. Our gym is supervised by qualified instructors who are here to help you achieve your fitness goals. We do our best to keep up to date with the latest fitness releases and qualifications to have the best knowledge possible to help you. See below for a profile on each of our instructors who are experienced in different fields of the fitness industry.
Initial consultation (45min-1hour) - A detailed health questionnaire will be filled in with an instructor to help us understand you current state of fitness and set your personal goals. You will also be given a basic introduction to the cardiovascular equipment and have a blood pressure reading taken.
Personal Program (45 min) - Your instructor will confirm your understanding of the cardiovascular machines, introduce you to some resistance exercises and produce your program card.
Please Note: When you have your initial induction your blood pressure will be taken. If you are on medication for blood pressure it would be helpful if you could bring a signed note from your GP to explain the condition and confirm that it is safe for you to proceed with a new fitness regime. Should you have undetected high blood pressure that is discovered at the time of induction we will be obliged for your own safety to halt proceedings and recommend you make an appointment with your doctor for a full check up. If this should happen we would give you a form for your doctor to fill and sign and you can then bring this back to us.
Reviews and Monitoring Services
Follow up reviews (45 min) - Our members receive two extra reviews after their initial induction. During these sessions we reflect back to your original goals and adapt your regime to keep you on track. The last review is a free Personal Training taster session (45 min). If more in depth help is needed, we would recommend personal training sessions to help.
Health M.O.T (30 min) - Your initial health MOT is free and includes weight, Blood pressure, measurements and a composition analysis (body stat) reading. This gives us detailed readings relating directly to your health and allows us to continue your progression towards optimal health. Further health MOT's are priced at £5
