Team Bath Gym & Fitness Centre
The Sports Training Village is home to the Team Bath Gym & Fitness Centre – which more than doubled in size in February 2019 to 1,536 square metres with the opening of a new two-storey extension – and a High Performance Gym. All of the exercise zones feature state-of-the-art equipment to help users of any ability achieve their fitness goals.
Three dedicated fitness zones
There are three zones to the Team Bath Gym & Fitness Centre, each of them available for use by students, staff and members of the public. All are kitted out with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment – including treadmills, exercise bikes, cross trainers and step machines – powered by Matrix Fitness, whose technology allows users to synchronise their workouts with our dedicated Team Bath Active app. In total, there are around 100 stations available for use across the three zones.
There are also two studio spaces in the two-storey extension, providing scope for 100 group exercise classes every week.
