Our indoor and outdoor group exercise classes are perfect for everyone, no matter your age or level of fitness. And with more than 60 fitness classes per week you’re bound to find at least one that you love!
We know that joining the gym can be daunting, and no one wants to pay for equipment and activities that they’re not using.

The benefits of group fitness classes
Let’s be honest, at the end of a long day who wants to drag themselves away from a comfy home to complete the same, monotonous exercise regime. Not us! That’s why we love a group exercise class, they’re just great fun!
Not only are you improving your fitness, working towards your fitness goals and reaping all of the associated health benefits – you’re having a good time doing it!
All the benefits of a personal trainer, without the cost
Having a personal trainer is great; one to one tuition, a personalised training regime etc. But it can be expensive. Group exercise classes offer all of the benefits of having a personal trainer at your disposal, without the cost!
Our classes are led by qualified fitness professionals, and sure you won’t get the one-to-one attention that you might find with a personal trainer, but you’ll still get expert help with your fitness.
No planning your workout routine
Devising new workout plans and routines can often feel like homework, even once you’re done exercising there’s more work to do?! Well, with group classes your exercise routine is pre-planned so there’s no need to worry.
Group workouts also provide an opportunity to meet like minded people, providing a platform to make new friends as you work collectively towards your healthy lifestyle goals.
Improve your form
Because your class will be run by a qualified fitness expert you’ll have someone on hand at all times to ensure that you are completing exercises and movements with the proper form. This will not only ensure that you are getting the maximum benefits from each activity, it will greatly reduce the risk of injury – especially for particularly physical activities such as lifting weights or TRX exercises.
It’s no surprise that exercising in a group environment can help to improve your motivation. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be competitive you’ll be surprised at just how much further you can push yourself when surrounded by your peers.
Classes suitable for every age and level of fitness
We put on classes to suit the ability and fitness levels of individuals of all ages, so don’t let the thought of being outshone by someone half your age, or with twice the experience level worry you. At the risk of repeating ourselves, the main point is to have fun while getting fit – and our instructors know just how to create a fun environment while ensuring you enjoy the physical benefits of exercise!
