Free gym membership

As easy as 1, 2, 3

The health, welfare and wellbeing of our student community is our number one priority which is why we are pleased to offer you our free off-peak membership for Lifestyles Fitness Centres across Liverpool*. Discounted peak-rate membership is also available.

It is more important than ever that we take positive steps to have a good self-care plan in place and to look after our wellbeing.

Being physically active can help keep us fit, manage stress and boost our sense of wellbeing.

So don't waste your student loan by signing up for an expensive gym membership. You can get fit for free simply by completing these three simple steps:

  • Step 1: Be studying your programme at LJMU in Liverpool – students from partner colleges or other institutions are not eligible.
  • Step 2: Complete your registration and enrolment for the current academic year
  • Step 3: Then you will need to complete your LJMU Lifestyles application form

Where do I take my form?

Once you have completed your form download it to your mobile device and take it to your preferred Lifestyle Fitness Centre. More info on what centres are open is featured further below. If you are unsure how to get to your preferred centre please call them for direction.

Before you visit your preferred Lifestyles centre, you can also progress your booking online at the Lifestyles website. This will save you time and avoid unnecessary waiting in reception.

On arrival to the centre the customer assistant will provide you with the email address to send the Lifestyles LJMU form over to enable you to be added to their system. You’ll also need to take your LJMU student or staff ID card as proof of your identity.
