You can train up to 2 clients in a single facility rental. We book by “squat rack” (even though of course you don’t need to use it).

  • For 1-2 clients you would rent a single squat rack
  • For 3-4 clients you must book 2 squat racks
  • For 5-6 clients, 3 squat racks
  • For 7+ clients, you would rent all four squat racks (and have the gym to yourself!)

Yes, we do. Best to chat with us more to work out the details.

Yes, we have a few black out periods when we host classes that require the squat racks and/or full gym space.

This is reflected in our booking system, so you won’t be able to book at a blocked out time.

Typical black out periods:

  • Most weekdays 6PM
  • Some weekdays 7PM
  • Some weekdays 11AM
  • Saturdays 10AM and 11AM

Yes, you will be required to provide proof of insurance for liability up to $2M (Certificate of Insurance) plus a copy of your personal training certificate prior to training your clients.

We also require first aid training.

Yes, provided it is during the time the gym is open.

If you want to show a piece of equipment or quickly demonstrate a movement (5 minutes or less) then you do not need to book a squat rack provided this is not happening during a black out time.

If you are doing an assessment (mobility, FMS, etc), then you do need to book a squat rack.

Yes, provided you clean up after yourself and that odors are not offensive to others.

As long as we do not have to open the gym for you and as long as there is no disruption to existing clients, it is free to exercise in the space.
