The Dolphin Centre Gym Membership is a 12 month contract and to join we ask for a two-month deposit up front. The remaining 10 payments will be paid by direct debit each month, with your first direct debit taken two months after your start date. You also can choose to pay the full amount up front if you wish.
If you have young children you can take advantage of our Soft Play Crèche facilities, which allows you to use the Centre's facilities while your children are supervised by our qualified nursery staff. You will need to book and pay for theses facilities separately.
Additional Membership Packages
Our membership packages offer excellent value for money. If you commit to a 12 month membership your savings are even greater.

We provide you with a complimentary lifestyle assessment when you join Fit4Life to get you started on the right track but many of our customers regularly book in for 1:1 lifestyle assessments to keep them on the right track.
