Joined in July after lockdown and enjoyed it so much got my wife and niece to join also. Great range of equipment and the gym is spotless but the best bit is Sean the owner/coach. Brilliant motivator who can adapt workouts for each individual depending on fitness levels so everyone is made to feel part of the team.

Joined Project Fitness GB beginning of the year, it’s the first gym I’ve been to where I feel like I fit in. All shapes and sizes go. Now I go on average 5-6 times a week. Sean is a fantastic coach and there is a good focus on mental health. My physical and mental health have both improved ten-fold. Definitely recommend.
