Inside Our Clubs

Virgin Active Cafe

Club Lounge Menu

You look after your body. Exercise your taste buds too.

A healthy lifestyle is more than working out in the gym, giving it your all in a group class, or doing length after length in the pool. (Though those things are all good, obviously!) What you put in your body is vitally important to your wellbeing too. That’s why we’ve put this menu together, with its emphasis on more of the good stuff and less of the naughty stuff. (But plenty of the tasty stuff!)

Fat lot of good
