The rehabilitation gym at Barnes Sports Clinic is one of the most comprehensively equipped in private physiotherapy practice. This reflects the emphasis that we place on exercise-based rehabilitation. All of our equipment is heavy duty commercial grade gear. If you have witnessed the sparsely equipped studio gyms that are so commonplace in physiotherapy facilities and been left wanting, you should definitely pay us a visit! 

The Gymnasium operates on an appointment system which helps to ensure that it does not get overcrowded. Payment is conducted on a ‘pay as you go’ principle instead of a membership setup. This offers the greatest flexibility to our service users and means that you will never be out of pocket with a subscription that you do not fully utilise. 

The communal areas of the gym are monitored via CCTV for your safety and trained fist aiders are never far away. Additionally, we are equipped with an onsite Automatic External Defibrillator (AED). Power shower facilities and filtered drinking water are also available. There are also plenty of hand sanitising and alcohol wipe stations dotted throughout the gym. 

We have recently completed phase one of an ambitious upgrade to our gym. We have retired a number of our venerable Nautilus resistance machines and replaced them with state of the art Technogym units. Phase two will see our remaining Nautilus equipment replaced by more advanced machines and also the addition of other new and innovative apparatus. 

If you are interested in using our gymnasium you will need to book in for an initial 30 minute induction which will allow us to introduce the various gear to you and make sure that you can operate it safely. We also offer personal training services which can be arranged by contacting us by telephone or email
