All sessions will be available to book via our app and online eight days in advance for members, or seven days in advance for casual customers.

You will then receive a PIN which you will need to input on the screen upon arrival, to set up your fingerprint and gain entry.

To gain access to the 24/7 gym at Tameside Wellness Centre outside of opening hours, you will need to register your fingerprint which can be done in person at the centre, during staffed opening times. Please note that our central support team will be off for the Christmas break between 19th December – 3rd January, so during this time please contact either Active Copley, Active iTrain or Tameside Wellness Centre for any queries that you might have.
