Pay As You Go

Want to get fit but not sure that you will use the gym enough to justify a full membership?

Well, instead of joining the gym on an inclusive membership basis, you can pay as you go by signing up at where you will receive a pass each time you want to come and enjoy a session in our gym, or simply pop along to reception and pay direct to our staff.

Whichever you choose, you will have access to the gym and the changing facilities, which include a sauna in both the male and female changing rooms.

You can also join our exercise classes and pay per session.
