Taking a Membership at The Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre:

Please come to The Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre with the following:

  • Download and fill out the Aston Staff Membership Form

  • Your staff campus ID card

  • Cash or a Credit/Debit Card (we accept all major credit/debit cards except American Express)

  • Sport Aston Staff will take your membership details and process the application. If you are a new user of the facility, an induction session will be booked for you which will take approximately 45 minutes.

    Inductions will take about 45 minutes, depending upon how experienced you are already in using similar gym equipment. Experienced users who have previously been inducted in another gym (including Aston University’s previous facilities) must still be inducted to the Life Fitness equipment.

    This is an opportunity to be shown how to set the machine consoles, how to use the equipment safely and effectively and to ask the gym staff particular questions that you may have about starting an exercise routine.
