There are two large and distinct areas of the Team Bath Gym & Fitness Centre, now called Gym 1 and Gym 2, each of which features 3m2 individual training zones and socially-distanced walkways in line with Government and UK Active official guidance.
Both gym spaces are kitted out with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment – including treadmills, exercise bikes, cross trainers, climbmills, assault bike and ski-erg – powered by Matrix Fitness, whose technology allows users to synchronise their workouts with our dedicated Team Bath Active app. All cardio machines come equipped with access to Netflix, YouTube and social media (accounts needed).
There are also two studio spaces plus a TRX bay in Gym 2, allowing us to provide socially-distanced group exercise classes.
Book in advance
You will need to book in advance to secure a workout slot and say which of the two gyms you wish to train in for the duration of your workout. This is easy to do and can be done up to 10 minutes before you want to train. You can book multiple training sessions per week (one a day) which will be in 60-minute slots, although the duration of slots may change from time to time. If you realise that you can’t use your slot for any reason, please cancel it so that someone else can use it.
