Gym Orientation

If you've not used our gym before and would like to be shown how to use the equipment you can book into a gym orientation with one of our qualified gym instructors. This 30 minute session tells you everything you need to know in order to use our fitness equipment safely and appropriately. Following your orientation, you can then book into a program with a fitness instructor to design a programme that specifically meets your personal health and fitness goals. 

Please contact us at matlockgymstaff@freedom-leisure.co.uk directly to book a fitness orientation for a time that suits you. Fitness inductions are free when you take out any of our memberships. 

We offer flexible membership options to suit all, whatever your goal, we’ll help you get there.
