Mouth-watering meals

Working out or chilling out, match the menu to your mood with our unique diet code from Soulmatefood, which has launched in around 60 of our clubs nationwide. Our nutritional offering gives your body the fuel and nutrients it needs to perform and recover, as well as offering our members great advice on what and when to eat around their training.

The gym is your second home, so you know the drill. But this isn’t just any gym. We offer classes you can’t find anywhere else, take your cardio up three notches with our innovative equipment, and get you access to exclusive race events. Plus, since you’re so committed to fitness, we’ll always get you the most bang for your buck with our contract memberships.

Superb Innovation



Using gravity and body weight as resistance, move away to increase or decrease the load on your body. Great for beginners and easy to progress, TRX develops strength, power, endurance, mobility, balance, flexibility and core stability. It also makes you feel tough.

Learn to move, the tough way with our innovative gym floor space. Using the six primal movements – push, pull, squat, lunge, bend and twist – our four Grid classes will get your body moving the way it’s meant to.
