What our members say about us


I have trained at East Durham Fitness for 2 year now and it is the first time I have actually enjoyed exercising. The variety is the key attraction point and the coaches really have your best interests at heart.

There is a real community feel and everyone is welcome. I was dubious at first thinking "everyone looks so fit" but it's the best training decision I've ever made, I'd done classes other places where you weren't really pushed or encouraged but it's the opposite here and I love it.

Joanna Hughes, 29, Human Resources.

Having never previously been to a gym I wasn’t sure what to expect or if I could manage it. I did some taster sessions to give it a try including boot camp, spinning, metafit and functional training. The coaches are brilliant and take their time explain the movements, techniques and provide the motivation to improve yourself incrementally. The gym community is excellent, there’s a great team spirit and everyone is helpful and friendly. The coaches are totally focused on improving the user experience, with new kit, classes, facilities and regular refresh of class programmes. This keeps things interesting, challenging and enjoyable.

I’m into my second year at the gym, met some great people and haven’t looked back.

I joined East Durham Fitness 18 months ago after I was recommended by a friend. I had a taster session and the following month I signed up. I love the classes and although I tend to stick to the same type of class I never get bored as they are constantly varied.

The coaches are great, they keep you motivated and make sure you are constantly pushed to your limits. I definitely feel healthier and my fitness has improved massively since joining, and making this lifestyle change has now just become part of my routine. I now really enjoy spending time at the gym.

Joanne Maher, 39, Customer Services Officer Durham County Council.

I started to train at East Durham Fitness when it opened over 2 years ago. I've always enjoyed going to the gym after work but training here is something totally different!

The Functional Training is a great way of training to build strength as well as fitness as well as having a laugh. I particularly enjoy the weight lifting elements over the cardio but it's great to work on everything! I leave every session feeling covered in sweat ... and chalk!

I also utilise open gym before or after classes to compliment my training.
