Gym Experience

More than just a gym membership

At King's Sport, we are dedicated to delivering a range of opportunities to our gym members that cater to all levels of experience and all types of personal goals.

Get introduced to the gym space and equipment with inductions, reach your individual goals with programmes, develop a specific skill with specialised training and get one-to-one focus with personal training. Read more about our gym experience below.

First time in the gym or just need to know the basics of how to use our equipment and machines?

Inductions are free and last around 30 minutes. They will give you all the information you need to get started within our gyms, and what you can take advantage of within your gym experience. If you’re a King’s student or staff member we’ll also talk you through the other areas of the department you can get involved in from King’s Move to BeActive.

You can book by calling any of the gyms or emailing kingssport@kcl.ac.uk. You can also book online below.

Have a goal in mind or training for an event?

Book in with one of our expert Health & Fitness Coaches to talk through your goals and set a programme to get you on the right track. Programmes can last from 4 to 6 weeks when you’ll be able to re-book with your coach to review your programme, your progress and what we can do to support you next. Programmes are free for all our gym members.
