You can find a variety of different ideas and programmes to use during your time in our fitness suites here. These can help you with ideas for different exercises, to change your focus for a particular day or simply to focus a workout on a particular area of the body.

All workouts include details of the exercises, number of sets of each activity and number of repetitions (reps) to aim for, and there are descriptions on the back to help you perform each exercise correctly, with images alongside.
