Facilities

gym-1The Blackberry Gymnasium boasts an extensive range of cardiovascular equipment including Cross-Trainers, a freerunner, treadmills, steppers, rowers and bikes as well as The Rock. An innovative rotating climbing wall, this unique facility is not only fun, but use of it combines muscular strength and endurance, cardiovascular fitness and eye-hand co-ordination.

There is a broad range of fixed and free weights, including a Vectra multi-gym and Cable crossover. The Vectra is a multi-station, multi-exercise piece of equipment that is simple and safe to use, making it ideal for beginners while also offering enough weight and exercise options for the serious weight trainer.

Cable machines can be extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of exercises through complete ranges of motion. Anyone can be accommodated by making adjustments to the cable machine as angles and heights can be modified allowing for a single machine to conveniently offer a full body workout. Safety is always a concern during any exercise, fortunately cable machines make it especially difficult for one to get in a position to hurt themselves. The weight is always controlled and secured on the stack, unlike free weights. The variety of equipment ensures the Blackberry Gym offers a complete range of resistance options that suit the beginner or experienced gym user.

What's included in Your Membership?

The staff at The Blackberry Gymnasium will ensure that you achieve your goals and enjoy your workouts. Whether you want to improve your flexibility, lose weight, decrease your stress levels or return to full fitness after an injury, the gym staff and practitioners will work together to give you an individual and innovative programme of exercises and activities.

Before any programme is designed, a full lifestyle and fitness assessment is carried out to establish your level of fitness. This is the first step on your quest to achieve your individual health and fitness goals. The Blackberry Gym Phase One is a one-to-one session with an instructor who will give you a full fitness assessment and show you how each piece of equipment works. Your programme will be tailored to meet your goals and designed according to the results of your assessment. Your heart rate will be tracked throughout your workout to ensure suitable cardiovascular intensity.

Programme consultations are essential and are an ongoing part of your membership. As your fitness increases, goals will alter along with your programme. Here at Blackberry, the staff aspire to have a close rapport with our members and create a warm and friendly atmosphere for you to enjoy working out.
