Personal Gym Options

Personal Exercise Programmes

The fitness staff can provide you with a personal programme to guide your gym workout. It will take into account your current level of fitness, what you want to achieve from your exercise regime and what are your likes and dislikes in type of exercise. It won’t necessarily be entirely gym-based. This will take approximately one hour. An update of your initial programme costs R________.

 

Personal Training

If you want some one-to-one instruction in the gym you can hire your very own personal trainer for however many sessions you want. If you are just starting off in the gym for the first time you may find it useful to have one or two personal training sessions following your induction to reinforce your knowledge of using the equipment. However, there will be qualified instructors available during the week to advice if you have a query.

Fitness Assessments

An evaluation is made of your current level of personal fitness. Measurements will be made of your blood pressure, body composition (height, weight, body fat %), muscular strength, aerobic stamina and flexibility. A personal report will summarise your results. You don’t have to be fit for an assessment – it’s a great starting point for a new programme to measure your improvement over time.

Personal Training Session, a list of trainers is available from the reception cost to be discussed

Personal Exercise programme is available at an additional fee.

Fitness Assessment first included on taking up residence or commercial ___________

All members of the Bella Rosa Lifestyle Centre must abide by the 'house rules' whilst using the facility.
