East bergholt fitness suite is equipped with disabled- friendly machines to cater for all abilities. We have cross trainers, treadmills, stepper, ergo bike, seated stepper and exercise bikes. The resistance area has a full range of resistance equipment and there are also a range of free weights at your disposal.
The fitness suite is open Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 7am - 1pm and is used by the school when not used by the Sports Centre. It is also open every weekday evening from 4pm. We are also currently open from 9am-5pm on a Saturday and 9am-1pm on a Sunday. During School Holidays the Studio opening hours are usually extended and it is best to phone to check availability.
Friday nights we have the Spartans Powerlifting Club in . You are welcome to workout during this time but space is a bit restricted near the Weight Training end of the Studio but there is a terrific atmosphere. The Spartans have been based at East Bergholt for a number of years now and have had phenomenal success through National and World championships and Paralympic games, holding a number of records and Zoe with a Bronze Medal from the 2012 games.
Thursday morning there is a class in the Studio called "Trim in The Gym", this is run by our most experienced instructor Zoe Connelly . It is a good class to use as a friendly introduction to the Fitness machines incorporating toning and stretching sections. This is also a very sociable class, most of the participants stay for refreshments and a chat.
Before becoming a member you must have an induction prior to any activity, this is to make sure you are introduced properly into the gym and do not cause any harm to yourself and others.
Programme changes are now available, these allow you to have a one to one chat with one of our fitness instructors so you can have a programme set to help you meet a goal or just have a more varied experience in the gym.
