Situated in the heart of Gloucestershire, on the outskirts of a town called Stroud. We are based just off London Road, the main road between Stroud and Cirencester. We have now been open for 27 years, based in an old mill as Strouds original health club. As a family run gym, we pride ourselves on customer service and a community. 

We are a unique gym with every training zone separated, creating a different training environment in every room.
