A health & fitness facility run by Audlem village volunteers for the benefit of residents of Audlem and surrounding villages
Run by a small voluntary committee of Audlem residents, Audlem Community Gym is a health and fitness facility housed in the public hall annexe provided for the benefit of the residents of Audlem and the surrounding villages. The air conditioned facility is accessed via the white staircase to the side of the public hall (facing the playing field and tennis courts).
With 6 pieces of cardio equipment (2 treadmills, 2 cycles, a rower and a cross trainer), complemented by an array of weights and strength training kit, the gym caters for all of your fitness needs. Although we do not provide on-site supervision, the facility is inspected for safety and cleanliness daily.
You will need to complete the application form (here — paste link) (or available at various point in the village and return it to Williams' newsagents in the village centre. We will then contact you with details of the next available group induction session, which usually run monthly. At the induction (which is compulsory) you will be provided with your membership number, payment details and a small keyring fob which you will use to access the gym.
You will be given basic instruction as to how to safely use each piece of kit at the group induction session. If you would like some more detailed instruction, or a personalised training programme, you are free to contact the gym's retained personal trainer who will be happy to make suitable arrangements for you.
Our aim is to provide a facility that is affordable as well as convenient. Payment can be made monthly or annually, by standing order or bank transfer. Cash or cheque payments are accepted but are charged at a premium. Concessions are available for those in full time education.
For those students who move away for parts of the year to college and university, but would like to use the gym during holidays and occasional trips home, we offer a category of membership called Student Away. With this option, you will pay a significantly reduced monthly fee but you will be eligible to use the gym all year round. You will need to provide documentation to show that you are genuinely living away from home for large parts of the year.
We regret that, due to the administration involved, we cannot offer intermittent membership. Both monthly and annual memberships may be terminated at any time but if you then wish to re-commence within 6 months of the termination, the intervening months' fees will be payable.
For those who need stair-free access, there is a lift available which can accommodate a wheelchair. If you tick the box on the application form indicating that you would need assistance with using the stairs to exit the gym in the event of an emergency, we will draw up a personal plan with you for this contingency.
All Audlem residents aged 16 or over are welcome to join. However, for safeguarding reasons, if you are under 18 we will need your parent or other responsible adult to undertake to accompany you whenever you use the gym.
The gym is open from 6am to 9pm each day — including bank holidays.
There are male and female changing and shower facilities which are available at all times EXCEPT when in use by the football club for home matches when the rooms become used as home and away dressing rooms for both teams. This is usually alternative Sundays during the football season.
If you would like to see the gym before you joining, or if you have any other queries about membership, text or call one of the committee members on 07742 447554
