Frequently Asked Questions
Here we answer some of the more common questions we get asked.
Is the gym still owned by Pilkington?
No. In 2011 Ruskin Leisure, a Pilkington subsidiary that had been set up to run the facility at Ruskin Drive, sold out to a consortium of local people who now own and manage Ruskin Health & Fitness as well as the Percival Suite (free hire to gym members) and the Pavilion Bar.
Can I try before I buy?
Yes, we offer a free visit to people who are thinking about joining and all new members receive a guest pass which gives 2 free visits. To arrange a free visit call the team on 01744 454494.
Do members pay for group exercise classes?
All of our classes are available to non-members and other members can access the classes at a reduced rate. Places are limited to 10 Platinum members so booking is advised. All our classes are available to non-members also. They just pay £4 each time they attend.
Can I use your gym and pool if I’m not a member?
Non-members can come in with a member and pay a day fee of £5 and we welcome non-members to all of our exercise classes.
What are your last entry times?
Monday to Friday last entry is 9.15pm and at the weekends it is 5.15pm but if you’re using the pool you might want to allow a little longer. Last entry for off-peak members is 3.30pm Monday to Friday.
What payment options are there?
You can pay monthly by direct debit (taken on the 26th of each month), quarterly, half yearly (one month free) or annually (2 months free).
What is your cancellation policy?
Members must give one month notice in writing if they wish to cancel their membership.
Are you members of ukactive?
Yes, ukactive is the new name for the Fitness Industry Association.
Do you still hire out the pitches at Ruskin Drive?
No. These are now under the management of St Helens Council - 01744 676123.
