Fitness on Demand

We like to provide options to suit everyone’s fitness needs and timetables.

On-demand audio-visual fitness classes beam a range of strength training, flexibility and cardio workouts from our big screen with a pumping sound track to keep you motivated. The workouts are updated every four weeks so they'll never get old.

Join one of the scheduled virtual classes or use in your own time between classes.

Select a workout of choice from the virtual kiosk - if you need any help, ask one of the staff at Reception.
