15th December Update:

Christmas has come early this week as we have unwrapped some brand new Skillrow rowing machines for our gym! Developed with athletes, Skillrow improves both your cardio and power with diverse total body workouts available on the app, and with the most realistic rowing feel. The Multidrive Technology™ enables you to select the rowing mode for a cardiovascular workout or the power mode with added resistance to perform power-specific exercises and simulate rowing with additional load.

If you need advice or support please ask one of our Fitness Instructors for help.

We've also launched some new Foundation swimming lessons on Sunday mornings. Our Foundation swimming lessons are designed for school-aged children who are beginners or completely new to swimming. These lessons will teach them how to be safe in and around water.

What will they learn?

These classes are split into three levels of ability: Red, Amber and Green. Each level will cover basic skills and safety techniques including treading water, using buoyancy aids and how to perform shout and signal rescues.

By the end of this course, your child will be able to swim 25 meters unaided and have learnt the basics of all 4 strokes. 




Also this week: 

On Saturday 5th March, our staff and customers joined forces at Bath Sports and Leisure Centre to raise money for two great causes by taking part in a five hour charity Spinathon.  The event, which ran from 12:30-5:30pm raised funds for Cancer Research UK and a Bath Cougars Netball Club's U14 player who has recently been paralysed from the waist down. 

Over £1,700 was raised for Cancer Research UK, whilst over £10,000 has been raised for the young netball player.

Donations of any size can still be made via our Cancer Just Giving page. 

Donations to the U14 Bath Cougar netball player can be made here:
