Fitness Gym

Our fitness gym here at Kendal Leisure Centre is a fantastic, spacious and impressive facility boasting a variety of the very latest gym equipment. Refurbished in 2014,  the gym is fully air conditioned, with  a great cardiovascular selection of cross trainers, treadmills, rowing machines, bikes and more, plus a large selection of resistance equipment and a free weights area.

We know that going to the gym isn’t always just about the equipment, which is why the team pride themselves on being welcoming, knowledgeable and professional to make your workout experience the best it can possibly be.

We welcome all new members with a full gym induction, which includes a tour of all the equipment and how best to use it within your workout. During your induction, a member of the team will discuss with you your goals and objectives and from this, create a personally tailored programme for you to follow when you visit the gym.



There's something for everyone with our choice of fitness classes which take place daily in our studios, plus aqua classes in the pool. See our latest timetable for the full class listing, descriptions and session times. To whet your appetite, here's a small selection of the choice of classes we offer: Gym Circuits, Body Conditioning, Kettlebells, Mossa Group Power & Fight, Abs Blast, Group Cycling, Core Body,  Tai Chi, Zumba & Yoga.
