The Gym

Achieving your fitness goals is made easy in our open-plan gym, which benefits from plenty of natural light and features 23 stations of cardio and resistant equipment, including specialist pieces like our multi-cable pulley machine and a First Degree E-720 Fluid Cycle XT bike.

There really is something for all levels and abilities, whether you’re an athlete-in-training, a novice gym user or in need of rehabilitation from illness or injury.

Our expert instructors are on hand to help you create a gym programme, and you can even book personal training sessions if you’d like a more tailored approach and someone to keep you motivated.

Juniors aged 12-15 can take advantage of our Junior Gym sessions, which give them access to our cardio stations while teaching them how to safely use gym equipment and the benefits of regular exercise.

The Swimming Pool

Our 25-metre pool has a depth range of 0.9–1.8 meters and features easy-access steps and a hoist to ensure it is accessible to everyone.

Our pool timetable includes dedicated sessions for lane swimming and ladies only alongside family sessions (complete with inflatables!) and regular Aquacise classes – ideal for those who are looking for low-impact group exercise.

Adjacent to our main pool is a beached training pool, which declines from a flat surface into the water, making it easy for wheelchair users to access the pool using our water wheelchair. Our thrilling flume slide is always a hit with younger children and has its own 0.9-metre splash-landing area for safety.

Lessons in our Swim School are offered for everyone from three-month-old babies right up to advanced sessions for adults, which are delivered in groups or as one-to-one sessions. Courses run over 50 weeks of the year and all lessons are delivered according to the ASA national plan to ensure our Swim School students gain confidence in the water and become stronger swimmers.

Our pool is also available for private hire for clubs and kids’ parties.
