We’re proud to be the official gym partner for the British Heart Foundation.
It’s estimated 1 in 2 of us will have a heart or circulatory disease in our lifetime.
Through our partnership we are collaborating on a number of projects that will help make a genuine difference to the health of the nation, both today and in the future.
We’ll also be sharing support on how you can improve your heart health and reduce risk through exercise and nutrition.
We all have one, but sometimes we can take it for granted until something happens to us or those close to us.
Through our partnership, we want to shine a light on the importance of keeping a healthy heart and provide you with support and information to encourage some small changes you can start making to lower your risk of heart and circulatory diseases.
Heart and circulatory disease deaths are associated with a high Body Mass Index (excess body weight) in the UK.
Up to 5 million people in the UK have high blood pressure and don’t know it.
Up to 35% risk reduction of heart and circulatory diseases by being more physically active.

In all our 370+ gyms we have boxes for members to donate their preloved items to BHF retail stores. All sales go towards funding lifesaving research.
So far 2.4 tonnes of your donations have been diverted from landfill, equating to 24,425kg of C02 emissions avoided.
We have introduced a 'micro donations' option for all members when they sign up, with a choice to give an ongoing monthly amount of 25p or a one-off donation of 50p to the British Heart Foundation.
Many members are now choosing to donate this way which really makes a difference.
