The Strength Performance Centre (SPC) is a regional specialist strength training area, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. It’s part funded by sportscotland to help train performance athletes.

Get access

For a safe and professional environment all new users of the SPC need to undertake a 30 min induction. The induction covers key topics such as the use and care of equipment, rules and safety.

After the induction you will get your SPC subscription which allows you to access the facility via a security code. This code will change on a daily basis.

Membership required

Sport & Exercise Exercise

Weight lifting

The induction does not include how to lift.  If you are new to free weight lifting, we would encourage you to train in the gym rather than the SPC.

For advice on lifting form:

  • Look out for our planned workshops, advertised in the gym and at reception.
  • Take one of our personal training courses.
  • Chat to a member of staff in the gym or ask at reception for more information.

Our team of sport and exercise assistants are here to give you advice and support in each of our gym facilities.

SPC Timetable

Occasionally the SPC may be closed or some of the platforms may be booked for athlete training.


You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of those around you. We reserve the right to remove anyone from the SPC who is acting in an unsafe manner or abusing the facility.
