Equipped to succeed
We are a low cost gym but don’t get the idea we have cut down on the equipment to keep the price low. There are more than 220 state-of-the-art pieces of kit we are sure there will be something to suit your fitness needs. Treadmills, cross trainers, rowers and steppers - we’ve got all the gear and loads of ideas to help you reach your targets.
We’ve recently refurbished this gym so you can train smarter and reach your goals faster. The functional area is now double the size than it was previously. A new prowler track has been added and we’ve also added more functional kit including tyres. The lighter free weights area has also been expanded so you have more space to weight train. Both areas are upstairs and separate to the main free weights area. Plus, the changing rooms have also been improved so you can enjoy a clean environment to freshen up after your workouts.
A fantastic new way to workout
Pure Fit is a multi-functional area suitable for all fitness levels.
The rig: release your inner child on this fitness climbing frame designed to increase your all over fitness,
The 15 metre ladder: ideal for sprints, jogging or testing your fitness against the infamous bleep test
The boxes: these plyometric boxes will strengthen your legs and give you explosive power
The battle ropes: whether you swing it, slam it or throw it, the ropes will tone your upper body
Come on in and ask a member of the team to show you the ropes (literally!) or join one of our Pure Fit group exercise classes focusing on the rig. You’ll soon discover that Pure Fit is so much fun you won’t even realise you’re working out.
