Our Youth / Student Gym Membership has been a great way to bring our members kids into our space and encourage them to enjoy a healthy sporty lifestyle.
We pride ourselves on providing a great service and safe space for those that are looking to explore a gym environment, learn new techniques and be responsible and respectable in an adult environment.
This not only develops skills and awareness but is great for building confidence.
Who can attend the gym sessions?
Teens aged from 13 - 16 years can attend the sessions once they have completed an induction and signed off to be able to train on their own.
17-21 Year olds that have come through the Teen gym only can transition into our Student gym sessions which give more flexibility with their hours to be able to attend. This is shown on your app.

Teenage years are a time of self-discovery and growth, both physically and emotionally.
Engaging in regular exercise, specifically in the gym, can provide teenagers with numerous benefits beyond just building muscles.
We will explore how teenagers can build confidence while developing their physical strength in the gym.
1. Muscle Development: Regular gym workouts, including strength training exercises, help teenagers build and tone their muscles. As they progress in their workouts, they will notice increased strength, endurance, and overall physical fitness.
2. Improved Body Composition: Engaging in consistent exercise at the gym can help teenagers maintain a healthy body weight and reduce body fat. This can lead to improved body composition, making them feel more confident about their appearance.
1. Increased Self-Esteem: As teenagers see improvements in their physical fitness and appearance, their self-esteem is likely to increase. The sense of accomplishment gained from setting and achieving fitness goals can boost confidence levels.
2. Stress Relief: Adolescence can be a stressful time due to academic pressures, social challenges, and hormonal changes. Exercise, including gym workouts, acts as a natural stress reliever by releasing endorphins, the body's feel-good hormones. Regular exercise can help teenagers manage stress and improve their overall mental well-being. We witnessed this first hand through GCSE's and those attending to take a break from study.
3. Body Positivity: Engaging in physical exercise promotes body positivity and acceptance. In the gym, teenagers can focus on what their bodies can do rather than how they look. This shift in perspective can foster a healthy relationship with their bodies and promote self-acceptance. We are a mirror free gym.
1. Peer Support and Camaraderie: Joining a gym or participating in group fitness classes gives teenagers an opportunity to connect with like-minded peers who share similar goals. The support and camaraderie found in these settings can boost confidence and provide a sense of belonging.
2. Developing Discipline and Goal-Setting Skills: Regular gym workouts teach teenagers valuable life skills such as discipline, perseverance, and goal-setting. These skills can extend beyond the gym and positively impact their academic and personal lives.
Tips for Teenagers in the Gym:
1. Start Slowly: It's important for teenagers to ease into their gym routine, starting with lighter weights and gradually increasing intensity. Proper form and technique should be prioritised to prevent injuries.
2. Seek Professional Guidance: Teenagers should consider working with a certified personal trainer or fitness instructor who can provide guidance on appropriate exercises, form, and progression. This will ensure safety and maximise the benefits of their workouts.
3. Listen to Your Body: Rest and recovery are crucial for overall health and muscle development. Teenagers should listen to their bodies and allow for adequate rest days to prevent overexertion or burnout.
