In the Club
- What is an Intro PT session?
An Intro PT Session is an introductory meeting with a personal trainer lasting about an hour, during which the trainer briefly interviews a new club member and, after completing a short evaluation, tailors the best training program for member’s individual goals. This session also gives a member an opportunity to become acquainted with the trainer, and all machines available at our club. If you missed your PT Intro by any chance at the start of your membership, please contact our sales consultants to book your session or fiill in the following form
- Should I book a PT session before, or can I just ask at reception?
Any Personal Training sessions should be booked beforehand at the club reception, to make sure we have a trainer available for you that can support you in achieving your particular goal.
