Total Fitness Whitefield
Total Fitness Whitefield has been a venue within the TGA family since 2015. The centre is prominently located on the A56 Bury New Road, making it also a really accessible place to learn to do gymnastics if you live in Prestwich, North Manchester or Salford. This venues runs using the Beth Tweddle Gym Stars programme.
We run our classes in the large studio upstairs and the classes are visible through the glass windows. There is a club cafe located downstairs from which you can purchase hot drinks and snacks and access their free wifi.

Information on the gym:
Total Fitness Whitefield welcomes boys and girls to their sessions
For the Twinkle Stars classes we ask the parents to get involved and support their child throughout the class.
Spectators are not permitted in the room.
There is a car-park at the venue.
This venue has a number of benches, floor mats, vault, springboard, soft play (twinkle stars) and various handheld equipment to help with the children's coordination.
From the M60
Leave the M60 at Junction 17, take the Bury New Rd/A56 exit on the roundabout and carry on down Bury new road for about 1 mile. Then Turn right onto Elms St.
The children will be working through our Gym Stars programme using the badges 1-7 for the Twinkle Stars, badges 6 - 14 for Bright Stars and badges 8 - 14 for Shooting Stars. We aim for them to achieve one award per 10-12 week term with one skill being marked as achieved each week in their progress booklets.
Parents can stay for the first session should they wish to do so, however after the first session they will not be permitted to stay as the coaches will require the gymnasts full attention at all times during the session.
Gymnasts are required to wear a t-shirt and shorts/tracksuit bottoms or leggings with any long hair tied up and not wearing any jewellery.All earrings must be removed and if this is not possible, they must be taped up. They must also bring a drink to their classes. They will train in their bare feet.
They must also bring along their progress booklet as this is where the coaches will record all progress and mark off what skills have been achieved. If a gymnast loses their progress booklet, a new one must be purchased at a cost of £3.50 so please ensure that they are kept safe.
What to do when you arrive:
Please arrive about 5 - 10 minutes prior to the start of your session. As you enter the leisure complex if you are a Total Fitness member scan your card and enter through the turnstiles. If you are not a member please signal to the receptionist you are a member of Total Gymnastics and they will allow you access. You can come up to the studio ten minutes prior to your class beginning - once the previous class has departed you will be invited into the studio. This is to ensure the safe arrival and departure of all of our gymnasts.
