Gym, classes and wellness

We're dedicated to helping our members stay fit and well in whatever way suits them.

Our gym is a place where you can spend as much or as little time as you wish and get a great workout, with a range of equipment versatile enough to accommodate people of all abilities, ambitions, shapes and sizes. 

The gym is open 6am - 10.30pm Monday - Friday, and 7:30am - 7pm Saturdays and Sundays, while our group exercise classes run within these times.

We offer a range of memberships which give you access to our fitness facilities.

Group workout classes

Our classes are social, fun and a really good workout.  They range from low impact to the more intense and guide you through every step with our fantastic instructors.  You can enjoy our classes with a friend or meet new people each week.

Some of our classes


Gym support

Upon joining, members can take part in a 45-minute group introduction, choose a one-one introduction (this is chargeable) or opt out of introduction and just get going.

One-to-one support sessions can be booked with a member of the gym team. The sessions last 45 minutes and cost £xx.  

Once you’ve been exercising for a little while, why not refresh your workout by booking a free 15-minute Gym Workout review with a member of our Fitness team, these are bookable online or on site.

Our gyms may not always be staffed, but rest assured support is never far away – our helpful Placemaking team can be found at Reception. Our equipment is labeled with QR codes, which when scanned, provide you a video tutorial. Also look out for our latest workout boards in the gym, with a scannable code showcasing the latest workout to try.

Junior fitness

We believe a physically active child is much more likely to become a physically active adult. We run the following supervised sessions for children aged 11-15 years to attend:

  • Monday - Friday 3:30pm - 5:30pm
  • Saturday and Sunday 10am - 11am and 3pm - 4pm.

All junior gym users must complete a group introduction before using the gym independently. These sessions last 30 minutes and can be booked with a member of our team when joining. 

Once a junior member has completed their introduction and received programme advice they can attend outside the above supervised sessions with a parent/guardian or appropriate adult (16+) on a ratio of a maximum four juniors per adult.

Health suite

Take time to completely relax and unwind in our beautifully tranquil health suite, featuring a relaxing infrared sauna; a calming steam room; a traditional, skin-purifying sauna; and deeply soothing, heated seats.
