The Origin Fitness Training Academy; Scotland’s premier venue for fitness education and training courses. The training academy aims to provide individuals and organisations with a perfect training space in which they can deliver fitness, health and nutrition education courses of the highest quality.
We want to add value to the fitness education and continued professional development experiences of our clients and prospective clients by offering a service to educators in the form of a flexible, top class fitness training facility that is available for use all year round.
At our Edinburgh headquarters we have created what we feel is the perfect environment for delivering fitness education programmes.
Our Training Academy features:
Origin Fitness prides itself on supplying clients with only the very best fitness equipment the industry has to offer. The design and installation of the Training Academy was treated just like any other project and the quality of the items that you and your clients will have at your disposal reflects this 100%.
One of the key issues we’ve spoken to fitness education providers and industry trainers about is having to host their workshops and courses in facilities which are not only below par, but are in use by regular gym members. Our training centre serves as a premium fitness equipment showroom for our key clients, but when you visit the space to deliver your course it becomes your own personal, fully equipped gym.
However, the most unique aspect of hosting your training course at Origin Fitness is that because of the venue’s close proximity to our warehouse, the team of experts on-site Monday-Friday and the non-commercial use of the facility, we can help shape the gym and lecture space into a training room that suits you, allowing you to maximise learning, participation and the clients experience.
Specific equipment can be provided for specialist courses for example group cycling, kettlebells, functional workshops, studio weights training and strength & conditioning courses.
The cost of hiring the Origin Fitness Training Academy varies depending on the number of days, students and different areas of the facility you wish to book.
The Spinning Studio can be booked separately from the main gym, as can the open plan studio space, these may be lower in cost if this is the only space your course wish to make use of.
Additional costs would be incurred should you require setup and provision of any specialist equipment that isn’t already provided.
Accommodation - Both the Premier Inn (Newbridge) and Norton House Hotel are within one mile of the Training Academy. The Premier Inn offers accommodation for as little as £29 per night and preferential rates for the 4 star Norton House (former AA Hotel of the Year Scotland) can be arranged through Origin Fitness.
Catering - On-site the kitchen facilities are limited so we recommend that students either bring their own meals, or visit the local Spar, Scotmid or Greggs, all located within a 10 minute walk.
Alternatively, the Edinburgh International Climbing Centre (four minutes away by car) has a great cafe, serving healthy meals to take away or eat in. Open Monday - Friday (9am – 8pm) and Saturday - Sunday (9am –5pm).
The Origin Fitness Training Academy is located in Newbridge, Midlothian just on the outskirts of Edinburgh and within a few minutes of both Edinburgh International Airport and bus links to the city centre.
The Origin Fitness Academy in Edinburgh is great. I can see it becoming a real hub for fitness education courses in Scotland because it just has everything you need. It’s as good as any actual gym of the same size in Edinburgh and I would definitely host and attend more courses there. Euan Millar, CrossCore Master Instructor.
The team at Origin Fitness have always been great to work with. They have a wealth of expertise with the operation, design and installation of gyms that it’s no surprise the training academy is one of the best locations I’ve used for delivering fitness education courses. Barry Ross, Spinning Master Instructor.
