Finding your fit. It's what The Gym is all about. No matter your shape or size or experience, there's a place for everyone here. Whether you're walking into a gym for the first time or you're training for your 39th marathon, The Gym is where you take yourself to the next level.

We don't wanna make a big song and dance about it (we'll save that for our classes), but it's a pretty great place to work too. Whether you're a personal trainer, running the whole gym, or supporting the business centrally we'll provide a friendly, place where you can learn and improve that is flexible to your needs. It's not all bean bags and massages though, we push everyone to challenge their limits (sometimes further than they think they can go), because it's how you'll get the most out of your body or your career.
