Young People in the Gym
Our gyms aren't just for adults!
We provide S1 - 15y/o young people a safe and controlled environment as they find their feet in the gym.
Being active and healthy changes more than just your looks - it’s great for self esteem, keeping you healthy and it’ll give you more energy. Whether you want to work towards gym accreditation or just take part in a gym-based fitness class, we've got the right pathway for you!
U16’s MUST go through the NRG Zone Accreditation process BEFORE they can access the Gym.
Accredited, S1 - 15 y/os can attend the gym at any time as long as there is a Gym
NRG Zone is the first steps on your journey into the gym. In these sessions, our expert instructors help you through our accreditation scheme. When you're ready, our instructors assess competence and discipline to use the gym without close supervision. Once completed, you're free to use the gym at any time as long as a Gym Instructor is present.
To gain gym accreditation, you have to complete a minimum of five NRG Zone sessions.
Available at Ainslie Park Leisure Centre, Craiglockhart Leisure Centre, Dalry Swim Centre, Drumbrae Leisure Centre, EICA:Ratho, Glenogle Swim Centre, Leith Victoria Swim Centre, Portobello Swim Centre, the Royal Commonwealth Pool and Warrender Swim Centre.
Get your gym accreditation through our NRG Bootcamps, available at select venues.
Bootcamps are typically five sessions in five weeks, with each sessions covering a different aspect of the gym. During school holidays, we run five-day bootcamps where you can get your accreditation in under a week!
