Welcome to your gym experience

Our brand-new, cutting-edge gym is due to open in March 2021. At the moment, you can work out in our temporary gym at our North Sports Hall. It is a fantastic and fun environment to help you on your fitness journey – no matter what your level of fitness. 

The spacious gym floor combines a large cardio area with a well-equipped free weights zone.

We highly recommend that you book a time slot to work out at our gym. This guarantees you a space.
