Bookings can be made on our website, app or by phone to your local centre.

Gym slots do not need to be pre-booked. Please just turn up.

Timetables can be found on our individual centre pages.

Anyone over the age of 14 years of age can make a booking to use the gym and studio. 

Anyone age 12-13 years can make a booking to use the gym and studio, but they must be accompanied by an adult.



Bookings can be cancelled up to 2 hours before the start of your session time. Failure to cancel will incur a 'did not attend' record.

Covid safety

Following the Government announcement that Covid-19 restrictions will be relaxed on 19th July 2021, we're still following all safety precautions to make sure you can continue to be safe while using the facilities and we'd ask that you follow all guidance when you're at the centre.

The safety of our customers is our priority and so we ask visitors to look after each other by choosing to wear a mask in non-activity areas and practicing social distancing

Cleaning will take place at all centres daily and the self-cleaning regime will also continue.

During your workout

All members must clean equipment with the sanitising wipes/spray before and after each use. For free weights areas/Synergy 360 rigs, due to the high contact nature of these, we ask all members to sanitise/wash hands both before and after entering these areas instead.

Face coverings are not required while you are working out.

Post workout

Wash/sanitise your hands immediately after your workout.

Please leave the gym promptly at the end of your session.

Changing facilities and showers may be limited.

Please remember to wear face coverings in non-activity areas, such as reception, corridors and changing areas after your workout.

We ask that you please wash your workout kit after each visit.
