The Gym

The large gym at Cookridge Hall, offers a wide range of equipment across 2 floors, providing enough variation for the ultimate workout.

Our fully equipped gym is packed with lots of new equipment to give you the optimum workout.

Our cardio floor offers a large number of cross trainers, treadmills and bikes to enable you to hit your goals, whether it be getting fit, losing weight or toning up. The cardio floor also features a boxing area, battle ropes, stretching area, Kettlebells and Vipr. We also have new stretching areas with foam rollers so you can warm up effectively.

All of the cardio equipment on the upper floor of the gym was replaced in December 2012, with brand new equipment from Technogym. We have also replaced the flooring and change the layout of the lower gym to give a whole new look to the gym.

The cardio floor also has a boxing area, where you can box as part of your workout or join one of our Boxercise classes.

Battle ropes are a new addition to the cardio floor and provide a great body workout.

Our qualified staff are on hand to help you with the equipment and offer any advice on your workout.

VIPr and Kettlebells are also on offer on the cardio floor along with a number of mats so you can stretch out .

We have TVs and audio equipment in the cardio area so you can enjoy music or watch your favourite TV programme while you work out.

The lower floor of the gym provides a large number of resistance machines and a number of free weights and dumbells. We also have TRX resistance training, gym balls, kettlebells, medicine balls, free weights, boxes and much more on the lower floor of the gym.

You will also find our large studio on the lower floor, through the double doors and the spin studio.

Please note that the gym closes at:
10pm Monday – Friday
8pm on a Saturday and Sunday

The pool closes at:
10.30pm Monday – Thursday

We have a large area on the lower floor of the gym with a wide range of weight machines, free weights as well as a good range of kettlebells, exercise balls,  a TRX suspension training system, boxes, bands and much more.

Kettlebell training gives you the benefit of serious cardio training without the boredom. It gives you strength and flexibility without long poses and is fun and varied, suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes. Kettle bell training combines cardio and strength training for busy people.

ViPR stands for Vitality, Performance and Reconditioning and is like the Swiss Army knife of exercise gadgets! It can be carried, dragged, rolled, thrown or stepped to provide the ultimate workout! It can be used for a whole body workout and can be more effective than a traditional weight training session.


Born in the Navy SEALs, Suspension Training bodyweight exercise develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.

The TRX Suspension Trainer:

  • Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
  • Helps build a rock-solid core
  • Increases muscular endurance
  • Benefits people of all fitness levels (pro athletes to seniors)

We have recently added some boxes to the lower floor to add some challenge to your workout, with a large step up to really work those legs!
We are always reviewing the equipment that we have and try to keep on top of the newest trends in training to ensure that we have the right equipment for the perfect workout.
