Alert Icon Sandiacre Friesland Sports Centre will close on 15 December 2023. Unfortunately, the gym facility will close sooner, and will be unavailable from 27 November 2023. However, there are a number of alternative Leisure Centres you can use. Read the full details here.

Using the gym

Whether you’re a seasoned gym goer or just starting out, we realise it can be daunting coming to a new place to exercise. Our gym staff and personal trainers are there to help you, show you new routines and give a full induction on how to use the equipment.

Where do I start?

We understand that if you’re coming to the centre for the first time, you might not know how to use some of the equipment. Don’t worry, one of our staff will give you a full induction on how to use the kit to ensure you’re using it correctly and safely.

When you’re using the gym, there are a number of different ways you can exercise. Whether it’s using the range of equipment we have on offer to give yourself a full body workout or targeting specific areas of your body each session, planning your routine is essential. If you’re unsure on where to start, reach out to one of our personal trainers who will be happy to help you get up and running.  

Do I need to bring anything with me?

In the main, just yourself! Everything is already there for you to exercise with confidence. Otherwise, a water bottle and a gym towel are useful items to carry around with you.

What do I wear?

A typical gym goer will wear sports clothes, very similar to what you would wear to go on a road run. Cotton / Polyester t-shirts, football shorts, gym leggings and tracksuit bottoms are some of the more common items worn in the gym. We’d recommend not wearing denim, shirts or something you’d wear on a Saturday night!
