PHYSICAL ACTIVITY READINESS QUESTIONNAIRE

Upon joining the Club all new members are required to complete and sign a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire. The purpose of this is to ensure that

the Club’s staff are fully informed of any physical or medical condition which could affect the members ability or suitability to take part in physical activities.

Only if the Club’s staff are fully and accurately informed, can they assess the member’s health and fitness level and prepare an appropriate exercise

program. The Club strongly recommends that all members seek medical advice before commencing a new exercise programme and The Club

CLUB AGE LIMIT

We have no upper age limit as the right kind of exercise at any age is good for you, however we do have a minimum age limit of 14. If you are 14-16 years old then your membership will need to be set and up and paid for by a parent/carer who is liable for the monthly payments. They will also need to counter sign the Physical Exercise Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ) to be able you to use the gym.  An induction onto the gym equipment is recommended to minimise the risk of injury and to maximise your results but is not compulsory.  We do expect all our members to train and behave in such a way as to no offend other users and failure to do this will result in memberships being terminated.
