For a fitness programme tailored to your needs, just ask a Better fitness instructor and they'll be happy to put together a workout to suit you.

Before using the gym you will need to complete an induction, so our fitness instructor can check that you are well enough to train. This also gives you the opportunity to get advice about other activities in the centre which could help you acheive your fitness goals.

Re-focus sessions are available to you at any time, where our fitness instructors will mix up your fitness programme. Did you know that keeping your workout more varied and challenging can actually keep you much fitter.


To vary your workout why not try one of our Group Exercise classes? Our Group exercise programme has a wide range of over 30 classes from beginners to advanced level in a fun and sociable environment with one of our fully qualified and experienced group exercise instructors. Includes Aerobics, Yoga, Body conditioning, Pilates, Boot camp and Box-fit.


A Dry Heat Sauna cabin is located in the wetside area to assist with weight loss, cleansing and helping to relax the body and mind. Hot and cold drench showers are available to sauna users. 

Outdoor Pool

From May bank holiday weekend, our outdoor pool and garden area is available for use during weekends and throughout the summer holidays.

Personal Training

Our personal trainers provide exercise programmes for all areas of general fitness, and are there to give you all the motivation and support you need to achieve your goals.

Your trainer will design a progressive training workout just for you. They'll select the appropriate loads, reps, sets and sequence of exercises, ensuring your time is best spent, giving much better results than if you were training alone. They'll also offer nutritional and lifestyle advice.

Workouts will be challenging, educational yet fun, and hopefully you'll find the experience has a positive effect on your whole life!
