Important information for gym users


Due to the ongoing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, our gym facilities are currently operating with limited opening times and access, with additional safety measures and procedures in place including booking workout slots.


Please see below for specific information on each of our facilities. More updates will be made available in due course.


We are also working on restarting fitness classes when able to do so. Please follow the gym on Canvas or social media for the latest updates.


Moss House gym

Our Moss House gym offers state-of-the-art equipment with an array of cardiovascular and resistance machines, as well as a free weights area. Members can attend fitness classes across sites inclusive of their membership.

Helpful staff are on hand to assist you in the gym and training programmes are available for new members on request by our qualified instructors.

To help motivate you throughout the year, personal training is available for those who want one-to-one sessions (please enquire at reception). We also run several gym challenges and events that members can take part in. You can monitor your progress using our Tanita® scales that will give you an accurate and detailed weigh-in.

Our gym at Moss House is open Monday to Friday from midday to 6pm. The gym is currently open to members only – to sign-up for membership, click here.

  • Wipe down any equipment used with the cleaning products provided
  • Follow all signage for social distancing
  • Wear a face covering in all communal areas
