Club Rules

To become a member you must agree to abide by the club rules. There aren’t many rules, and basically its just about making sure everybody behaves politely, exercises safely, and treats each other and the club facilities with respect. We are a non-judgemental gym and we welcome all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels.

  1. Please respect the club, our staff, and other members at all times. We may end or suspend your membership if we reasonably think that allowing your membership to continue would be dangerous to, or would have any kind of negative affect on the club, other members or our staff.
  2. On joining all members are offered an induction to instruct you on the use of the gym equipment. You are strongly advised to undertake this. Ocean Fitness will not accept any liability for any claim for personal injury if you use the gym equipment having not undertaken an induction from a qualified member of Ocean Fitness staff.
