As some of you will know, a brand new gym has opened in Thanet-I wrote about the beginning of my fitness journey here.
At the beginning of the week, I was lucky enough to visit the new gym, to find out some more information about what’s on offer, and to take some photos!
Membership and Facilities
Membership currently stands at a rather affordable £12.99 per month, and, with no minimum contract, you have the ability to cancel at any time (although why you’d want to I’ve no idea.)
The gym is open 24 hours a day-and, included in the monthly fee are all classes, of which there are currently 40 per week! You also get 3 free PT (personal trainer) sessions, to get you into the swing of things.
There are also plenty of amenities and facilities for you to use as part of your monthly membership; showers and changing areas, water fountains, lockers and much more.
Vending machines are available with food, drink, padlocks and sweat towels in (the padlocks are for the lockers-you’re advised to have one, and the sweat towels also need to be provided by yourself).
The Training Areas
There are a lot of areas to train within the gym-all kitted with state of the art fitness equipment.
Whether you’re attending to train using cardio equipment, weights or just to use the low impact workout area-there’s plenty for everyone.
Safety and security
With a 24/7 gym, there are always concerns from new members about the safety of attending at different times of the day-especially when it’s dark. Not only does the gym have CCTV, there are also emergency buttons located throughout, and, members can only gain access by using their 8 digit pin they’re given when they receive confirmation of their membership
The Gym at Westwood Cross opens on the 18th of December at 12pm, and will be opened by the Mayor of Ramsgate. The Gym welcomes you to attend to see the grand unveiling!
You can find out lots more about all things Gym, by visiting The Gym Group’s website!
I’m really excited about attending the gym, especially now I’ve seen how much work Manager Matt Finch and his team have put into having it ready on time, and the massive variety of machines and equipment on offer.
