Health & Safety – Look after yourself
Before you start a fitness program, you should consult your GP or another appropriate health care professional to determine if its right for you. If they advise against it, don’t start and seek further medical advice before doing so. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time whilst exercising, you should stop immediately and seek medical advice. Please report any injuries you sustain whilst at the Gymshark Lifting Club to one of our coaches.
You must enter and exit the Gymshark Lifting Club through the main entrance. Fire exists are clearly marked and must be kept clear at all times (don’t mess with the fire doors!).
Make sure you warm up and cool down before doing cardiovascular or resistance training. If you don’t know how to use a piece of equipment ask and get instruction from the Gymshark Lifting Club coaches – don’t just have a go, as you could risk injuring yourself or others. If you are not a regular gym goer, please book an induction (our coaches are super helpful and knowledgeable) – these can be booked via the App.
Let one of our coaches know ASAP if you see or notice any damaged or defective equipment.
All sparring must be supervised by one of our coaches – sessions can be booked on the App. If you are using the combat studio and/or sparring, you must wear appropriate safety equipment.
