Gym inductions take up to 1 hour depending on your experience of Gyms. When attending a Gym induction please take water and a small towel, wear loose comfortable clothing and clean indoor trainers.
At the Pickaquoy Centre we offer group inductions of up to four people. This could be with a group of friends, or we offer the option to book in to one of our timetabled group inductions. These are available to everyone, but if you have any medical conditions we advise you to book in for an individual induction to allow our Fitness Advisors to discuss the condition in private.
Booking in to a group induction is a great way to meet new people starting out in the Gym.

Body Composition Analysis
A Body Composition Analysis (BCA) is a great way to track fat percentage, muscle mass, BMR and fat free mass. A BCA takes less than 2 minutes and is non invasive. The BCA focuses on actual fat mass rather than total body weight.
You will have to follow strict guidelines before the appointment to ensure the results are as accurate as possible.
At the time of the appointment you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks and stand on the machine.
Our Fitness Advisors will go over your results in detail explaining each of the elements of the test and will instruct on ways to improve your results.
A BCA is a brilliant way to monitor your training goals. Click here to download a copy of the pre-test guidelines.
Why not save money and book a block of 4 BCAs with our Health Passport.
