Gym Buddy Scheme


Impressions Fitness Suites operate a Gym Buddy scheme which plays a crucial role in providing additional support and encouragement to members who participate in exercise within the fitness suite. 


Gym buddies are volunteers who will accompanies gym users to assist, encourage and motivate them during their training sessions.


This scheme is completely FREE, so if you feel you would benefit from a gym buddy then simply speak to a member of the fitness team.


The priority customers are as follows:

  • Disabled users
  • Members with diagnosed medical conditions
  • Older / frailer adults

Gym users who lack confidence but have no functional limitations will be considered depending on volunteer availability.  Please note that these users may be better served by a short programme review with an fitness instructor to ensure familiarity with exercises and equipment.



Anyone over the age of 16 can volunteer to become a Gym Buddy and you do not have to be an Impressions member.  Volunteers must apply through application and will need to complete a self certification form before an induction takes place. 


To apply please contact Daniel Gammons, Sports Development Officer (Health Inequalities) on 01480 388857 or email
