We get it, signing up to the gym can be a daunting experience. Here at Brimhams Fitness Centres based at Hydro Harrogate, Ripon Leisure Centre and Nidderdale Leisure Centre, we make the joining process stress-free, simple and easy with no hidden joining fees. Our friendly fitness instructors are always on hand to help you with your fitness journey – whether you’re a complete gymophobic, a fitness-dabbler, an exercise enthusiast or switching gyms.
As a Brimhams member, you will have unlimited access to our fitness studios, classes and use of our five swimming pools at Knaresborough, Starbeck, Ripon, Nidderdale and The Hydro. Alternatively users can pay as you go to access the gyms, pools or fitness classes.
Once you’ve registered with us, book an appointment over the telephone or at the Brimhams desk with an instructor to go through a bespoke training programme, catered towards your wants and needs to help you achieve your goals. Your programme will be easily accessible on our Brimhams active app where you can upload other activities taken, track classes and body composition progress. Perhaps you want to work on your stamina, concentrate on weight loss or discover new exercises to help tone the body; whatever it is we can help. Staff are on hand at all times, so if you’re struggling with anything please ask for help and we will be more than happy to.
We are a fully air-conditioned fitness facility, featuring top spec Technogym equipment. Our cardiovascular equipment includes treadmills, recline bikes, rowers, bikes and an upper body trainer. Resistance equipment features abductors, leg curl and extension, chest press, free weights, lat machine and shoulder press and more. The Kinesis equipment includes a power plate and kettlebells.
