Not your average Gym.  Not your average workout.

‘Normal’ gyms have been promising results and never actually delivering for………..well, ever really! We have a different approach to your health and fitness, one focussed on enjoying working out and actually getting results – because when you enjoy working out…… go more often; and when you go more often, you achieve your reason for going in the first place.

Turning up to a floor full of machines full of people you think are watching you without knowing what you’re doing has caused failure in new fitness drives for far too many people. We are different, we coach our sessions, teaching you new skills, new effective moves and exercises to help you drop fat, get fit, tone up, feel more energetic and confident.
Whether you want to lose weight & tone up or want to feel less sluggish and have more energy. You might want to drop a dress size or drop a belt buckle to get into those jeans! We can help you do these things without giving up the the foods you love and things you like to do. We’re conveniently located just off the A38 between Ivybridge and South Brent and if Group sessions aren’t for you, we also offer private and semi-private Transformation Sessions run by our expert Personal Trainers.

Stories from our members


James Hyne: Age 39

"I’ve been here 4 weeks and love every minute of it. I feel a lot better in myself, I can already feel my movement’s getting better. I can definitely feel progress in just 4 weeks, I can only image what it’s going to be like in a a years time. I’d recommend it 100%. Compared to other gyms I’ve trained in, you don’t get judged. Definite community Spirit! Straight away day 1, people chatting to you. I would recommend anyone to give it a shot."


Anna Burnett: Age 38

"I hate exercise, but I genuinely love coming here. Haven’t missed a session, no matter how I’m feeling I still come....because I enjoy it. Great mix of people, all different abilities. Everyone’s really friendly, you feel like you fit in instantly whatever you size of shape. Everyone recognises when you’re doing well so you get loads of boosts in confidence."

The Functional Difference

We have a multitude of different and interesting equipment that you won’t find in your average gym or Leisure Centre. With knowledgeable and accommodating coaches that care for what you want to achieve we keep workout’s engaging and enjoyable whilst learning new skills and ways to move your body. All our group workout’s are fully coached (a fundamental difference to having a group instructor) and follow a structure to ensure you make the most of our time together. With concentration on quality of movement, you get the most out of everything you do from start to finish.

Numbers are capped to ensure we can provide you with the highest standards of coaching, ensuring you train safely and effectively no matter what your experience level. We are inclusive of all fitness levels and abilities, and most importantly we have time for you and your goals, we want you to get results, it’s why we’re here!

Got Questions?

We’re different, we get that. So here’s some common questions you might have

As we employ coached workouts to deliver actual results we aren’t comparable to an ‘attend only’ busy gym where you can’t find the equipment you want to use because it’s always in demand. We have packages and programmes to suit all needs so just reach out and we’ll help you get to where you want to be.

We are that confident you’ll love our approach to health and fitness we’ll set you up with a trial session.  If it’s not for you, walk away with absolutely no obligation and nothing owing.

Not really, we’re different from a Gym…..we like to know who you are and what you are trying to achieve so we can give you the best advice available.  Drop us a message and we’ll give you a bell for a quick chat to get you booked in, but also just to find out a bit about you.

Absolutely! As all our workout’s are coached you will never struggle with not knowing what you are doing and our professional coaches will provide you with exercises appropriate for your fitness level and ability.

Yes, we offer a creche for the 9.30am session, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

We have changing rooms and showers, a chill out room complete with coffee machine and free wifi. There is ample parking on site.

No, and yes.  We have plenty of interesting and fun equipment that will challenge you in ways you’ve never been challenged.  Part of those challenges include workouts on Assault Bikes, Concept2 rowers and Ski-Ergs (machines but not your average gym machines).

If you’re a member yes.  You’re more than welcome to come and use the space with one of your credits or as much as you like if you are on our unlimited option.  This does need to fit around around group sessions that are using certain spaces within the gym for obvious safety reasons.  If you are not a member and wish to drop-in then please get in touch.
