Yes, we have floor supervisors on duty from the time the gym opens to the time it closes. They are also qualified and are capable of making sure that you, the member, enjoy the facility.

There are a few rules that members need to be aware of to provide both yourself and the other members with the best training experience.

Carrying a gym towel with you during your exercise session, wearing suitable training specific sneakers and replacing of equipment after use are non-negotiables. These particular rules are implemented for safety and hygiene purposes.

The only classes which you are required to book in advance for are the spinning, yoga and pilates classes. This is essential as we have limited space in our studios. Booking of these classes can be done either at the gym reception, or online through the SSISA App (downloadable from the Apple Store or Google Play) or by following this link: The other classes that we offer do not require bookings at all.

Upon joining SSISA’s Fitness Centre, your sales consultant will book an assessment slot for you with one of our Biokineticists. This assessment is necessary in order for us to establish a fitness baseline for you. This assessment includes a very thorough battery of tests. The outcome of your assessment allows the Biokineticist to construct a personalised training programme that is tailored to your needs. Following your assessment, your Biokineticist will book you in for a consultation where you will be taken through your personalised training programme. This is to ensure that you feel comfortable exercising in the gym facility on your own.


Open 7 days a week, our spacious and inviting gym is equipped with modern training equipment and a sparkling 25m swimming pool. Our 140m indoor tartan track is the pride of our centre and it hosts a variety of awesome group exercise classes available to members.
