Once you are signed in with your Nuffield Health member credentials, you will be asked to confirm your home gym. Please note the location on your phone will also geolocate you and show the content for the location you are in. (Make sure your location services are turned on for the app). If you do not have location finder on, it will locate you when you connect to a piece of equipment.

On your first visit to the gym, you will be geolocated and able to see the content relating to your gym.
