The GSK Corporate Gym is open to all GSK employees and contractors. It is open from 06:30 to 21:00 Monday to Friday. In our gym we have an excellent range of both Cardio Vascular and Resistance training equipment. In order to use this facility you simply have to attend an Induction Session.
Fit For Life is happy to offer GSK a convenient on line booking system. We have a number of corporate clients using this system so to ensure you are booking for the correct site we will need to verify and add you to our GSK membership list to facilitate your bookings going forward.
For Insurance reasons all GSK employees who would like to use the gym must attend a 20 minute gym induction. Please note you do not have to change into gym gear for the induction.
During the induction, a qualified fitness coach will inform the participants of the gym policies and give a full demonstration of how to use each piece of equipment.
Exercise guidelines will also be covered.
Once you have attended an Induction, you are free to use the gym. You must attend an induction regardless of your level of fitness or previous experience in a gym.
In addition to the equipment we will be running a number of classes weekly. We hope that this page will provide you with all the information that you need in order to make full use of our Corporate Gym.
