Charlies Social Club has run a gym and health and fitness activities onsite at QEII since 1988. Health & Fitness members are able to access the 24hr gym and group classes as well as personal training, massage and much more.
With Technogym cardio and strength equipment and a range of free weights and core equipment our onsite gym is impressively equipped to meet most peoples fitness needs.
And being low cost and conveniently located onsite only helps.
The gym area is accessible 24 hours via swipe access available through the Social Club office. You can become a Health and Fitness member with gym access here. The gym is unsupervised and has 24hr CCTV and two duress alarms connected to onsite security for the safety of users. Prior to receiving gym access members are required to attend a 15 minute appraisal with one of the club trainers. The appraisal includes a health assessment and gym induction - and is a requirement of our insurance. We advise that members complete the questionnaire prior to their appraisal and bring it with them.

Members can get a free 30 minute health assessment and exercise plan once a year by booking two consecutive appraisal slots. Please contact the office to arrange this.
Sometimes it can be difficult to work out how to use a new piece of equipment. Or you might be able to do different exercises on the same piece of kit and improve tour workout experience.
You should book to see a trainer, but often there's not the time. With the free "Mywellness" app you can explore equipment, see video of exercises, create workouts and more.
Quality personal training is available at the Social Club gym. You can get details on trainers, prices and make bookings here.
Since the Social Club gym is largely unsupervised, we need members to follow basic rules to keep themselves and others safe, and keep the gym pleasant for everyone to use. The less members we need to clean up after, the lower we can keep fees - so everyone wins.
For this reason we've developed a fines system. Basically if you get caught breaking a gym rule you get a small fine that you need to pay online within a week. This is a slap on the wrist and reminder to be courteous and follow the rules. All fines money goes into our new equipment fund to help buy new gear for everyone.

*The Social Club reserves the right to fine members (and suspend or terminate their gym access).
