Can I use the gym outside of my exercise classes?

At Avanti Health Centre, we want to give all veterans the best possible opportunity to create a positive change in their health. We want to be your lifelong partners in maintaining a better quality of life.  To do this we are offering complimentary gym access which will work alongside your DVA-supported class sessions.

How will this work?

DVA participants will be offered a one-off complimentary 2-month membership at Avanti alongside their attendance at their initial DVA exercise class block.

During these 2 months, DVA participants will be permitted to use the Avanti Health Centre gym as frequently as desired!

On completion of the 2-month membership period, the membership will continue and the participant charged as per the Silver Flexible Membership terms, unless you formally request to cancel the membership.

DVA participants may cancel their membership at the reception of their centre.
