What classes do you run at Axis?

We run a large range of classes catering from preschool age children through to adults. These classes include General Gymnastics, Boys Gymnastics, Trampolining, Double Mini Trampoline, Tumbling, Preschool Unstructured and Structured classes and FreeG (Freestyle Gymnastics). We also do a range of circus skills classes including Trampoline Wall, Aerial Hoop/Silks/Trapeze, Teeterboard, Slackline, Acrobatics, Handstand and Handbalancing.

Please check out our session information and timetable pages for all the information.

What facilities do you have?

Although Axis has been running for over 10 years we only moved into our current venue in January 2015. In 2015/2016 we invested in over £200,000 of equipment and so the gym has a vast array of new and in many cases Olympic standard equipment. As a not for profit club we reinvest money heavily in replacing equipment where needed to keep it up to date. We have 8 trampolines (1 set into a foam pit with a rig and another by our trampoline wall), 25m fibreglass international standard tumble track and full run up, 10m tumble track into foam pit, full set of A-symmetric bars plus additional training bars, 2 Olympic sized beams and 1 low beam, various floor training beams, pommell mushroom, 2 sets of training rings, full size sprung floor, 14m air track, various vaulting blocks, double mini trampoline, £14,000 of specialised FreeG equipment, slackline, teeterboard, 2 aerial hoops, 2 aerial silks and a static trapeze. We also have a large array of preschool, training and conditioning equipment aas well as landing and safety matting throughout the gym area.  It is safe to say we have plenty of equipment to ensure fantastic and varied sessions throughout our classes.

How do I join Axis Trampoline and Gymnastics Club?

Please send an email to info@axistrampolineclub.co.uk with details of which sessions you are interested in and we can chat through that with you and find the right sessions for you.   Alternatively, you can pop in and have a chat with us during opening hours. We hold waiting lists for classes that are fully booked.

I have arranged a taster session, what should I bring?

Remember to arrive 10 minutes early for your taster as we have a consent form that needs to be filled out by someone over 18. These can be downloaded in advance from our Documents page on the website. Please wear shorts/leggings/joggers and a t-shirt and bring socks with you. Long hair must be tied back and jewellery removed for safety. A Parent/Guardian must remain on site during the taster but if you join the club they won’t need to stay for subsequent sessions. Payment for the taster will be required before the session so please bring this with you and check in at reception when you arrive.

Should you be unable to make a taster please let us know so we can rearrange it. Non-attendance will mean removal from our waiting lists.

Can I watch my child's classes?

Yes, we have a very open gym policy as we believe it’s very important for parents to be in touch with their children’s classes. We have a comfy café area situated within the gym so you will be able to see and hear your child’s lesson. We have a large range of hot and cold drinks and snacks to enjoy while you relax and watch.  We also have a toys, books and games corner where we often have younger siblings playing and have no issues with the whole family coming to watch.

Do I have to stay during my childs classes?

We ask someone stays during the taster session but once they become a member of the club you are welcome to leave during the classes. We ask that you do physically bring any under 16’s into the gym and pick them up from the gym, we have a security gate to ensure under 16’s do not leave the gym unaccompanied.

Do children work towards badges and certificates in all classes?

All our gymnastics and trampolining classes work towards the British Gymnastics proficiency award scheme. We don’t have specific badge classes as we believe all participants should have the opportunity to work towards these rewards. We also have Axis own reward cards and the effort trophy which is awarded monthly.

Do your classes run during the school holidays?

Our full preschool timetable only runs during termtime. However we do run some preschool classes during the holidays and the timetable can be found on the website under the What’s new section just before the holidays begin. Our 4yrs+ classes run throughout the school holidays only breaking for 2 weeks over Christmas and 2 weeks at the beginning of the summer holidays. These dates are available on our website, facebook page and club notice board. These breaks are worked into the payment schedule so you do not pay for the weeks we are closed.

Do you run school holiday sessions and can non-members attend?

Yes we welcome non-members into our holiday sessions and they are particularly great for those that can’t commit to a weekly afterschool session. All holiday booking should be made via our online booking system.

How do payments for sessions work?

Some of our preschool sessions are PAYG drop in sessions and some are paid for termly in advance. There are a range of adults classes which are also available to pay for on a PAYG basis. For all other sessions 4yrs+ fees are paid for via rolling monthly direct debit which must be set up within the first month of starting sessions. Failure to set up the direct debit authorisation will lead to removal from the registers.

I missed a class due to illness can I come on another day or get a refund?

Unfortunately the space is saved for you in a specific class and therefore classes are non-transferable or refundable.

I’m an unfit adult but love the idea of doing something different for fitness, are there classes I can attend?

Absolutely! There is no upper age limit to our classes. Trampolining and gymnastics are both great for fitness, strength and flexibility and easy to get into even as an adult beginner. We have a huge range of adults classes many which you are able to book on a PAYG basis to fit around work and childcare schedules. Check out our booking website for all currently available PAYG classes. We also have classes you can sign up to attend every week. Out adults pages have all the information about classes. We regularly get complete beginners in the adults classes so don’t be scared to come and join in, the classes are very relaxed and socialable while also being very productive and great for fitness.

Do you do drop in classes?

We do preschool drop in classes and details of these can be found on the preschool page of the website. Unfortunately, we don’t do drop in classes for 5yrs+ as all our classes are fully coached from this age and we have a strict gymnast to coach ratio. This ratio is kept low to ensure safety for all gymnasts as well as quality coaching. Our sessions are progressive and we believe it is important to attend weekly to get the most out of classes.

We do have some PAYG adults only classes for 18yrs+ to allow flexibility around childcare and work schedules. We also do holiday sessions which can be booked as one off sessions. All these sessions can be found on our booking website

Can we come for a one off session?

For pre-schoolers we have some drop in classes. We also do sessions during the school holidays for non-members 4yrs+ and these can be booked as a one off. However, our afterschool and Saturday morning classes for 5yrs+ are all classes you attend on a weekly basis as they are progressive classes designed to teach you exciting new skills. It takes time and practice to learn new skills safely. We can arrange a taster session before you commit to membership though, so please contact us.
