Memberships

Can I use the gym straight away once registered as a Student Member at Ethos?

Once you've purchased your Student Gym and Swim Membership, you'll be asked to complete a brief online safety induction. Once this is completed, you'll then be able to book your first sessions at the gym.

What are 'bolt-ons'?

With our standard student memberships, you're able to book classes on a pay-as-you-go-basis. However, if you'd like unlimited* access to classes for one monthly price, you can purchase a 30-day class pass bolt-on. If you attend more than four classes a month, these bolt ons represent better value for money that pay-as-you-go classes.

* You can book as many classes as you'd like during the 30-day period within our fair use policy.
