We are as passionate about our staff as we are about our customers, and encourage everyone to take part in activity (you can by using our facilities free of charge - just one of the perks when you join us).

Quite simply, we only employ people who are as passionate about our vision of “Inspiring Active Lifestyles” as we are and share our values. We want to provide the best experience for our customers through friendly and approachable staff who are experts within their fields.

We reward our hard working staff with excellent training and career development opportunities and they also enjoy a range great benefits and special offers.  See the full list of benefits below:
