Group exercise is a major focus of ours, so across our 3 exercise studios,. Teaching the best classes is all about personality and empathy… and we’re lucky to have a fantastic roster of the best group exercise instructors in the area … some have been teaching here for years, some just arrived with the latest workouts… we also offer for the 65+ carefully choreographed, energetic classes… whatever you’re looking for, we’re bound to have an instructor and a workout to suit you!


We have an array of My Zone classes including MZ Sweat, MZ Circuits, MZ Lift & MZ Mix. The classes use a range of equipment but all focus on the MyZone training zones. A heart rate belt is worn during the class and the instructor will guide you through which heart rate zone you should be working in at each time. All classes guarantee an enjoyable, intense workout and will earn you plenty of “MEPs” towards your monthly target. A MZ belt is essential for this class; for more information please speak to a member of the gym or reception team.
