We're excited to announce that we're making a significant investment in our gym and cycle room.

We're upgrading our equipment as well as adding brand new equipment. Don't worry, you'll still have everything you have now, only better.

We expect the equipment to arrive late 2021 / early 2022, subject to any shipping delays as a result of COVID-19 and will update members when we know more. We anticipate that the gym will be closed for a short period while installation takes place.

Gym

We'll be upgrading current equipment, as well as adding brand new state-of-the-art equipment. The new equipment will be more accessible and inclusive to different skill levels and people with disabilities. We'll do our best to minimise disruptions to your exercise routine as this changeover takes place.

Cycle room

We're excited to provide brand new cycle equipment soon! Our current bikes will be upgraded and new bikes are coming from Technogym. Don't worry, you'll still have the same number of bikes. But soon, you'll have access to better quality, enhanced technology.

We don't anticipate disruptions to existing cycle classes. We will schedule the changeover of bikes at the most appropriate time. We will continue to update members and guests if this changes.
