These packages offer basic equipment and the weekly training fee at a discount to save you time and money when you start. We insist that new members use this method under normal circumstances as in the past we've seen people arrive with substandard or inappropriate equipment that they have sourced themselves. It can be embarrassing when this happens and nobody wants to waste money.
