Q: Who are Flacks Fitness?
Flacks Fitness is an independently run fitness centre inspired by Martin Flack and built on a dream and passion for fitness. Since Martin was thirteen years of age, he dreamed of opening his own fitness centre and making it the best that he could! Over eight years ago (after over twenty years in the industry), his dream came true...
Q: The price sounds too good to be true? What’s the catch for the membership fee of £14.95 per month?
Well, quite simply, there is no catch! For just £14.95 per month you get full access to the gym, 80 free classes per week (both fitness and martial arts, including Zumba and Pilates), free Gym Inductions and help and advice from an Instructor. There are also changing rooms with showers, lockers, hair-dryers and saunas to relax in afterwards! Ahhhhh!
Q: Do you have classes?
Yes, oodles of them! There were 80 at the last count, all included in your membership and they are taken by fantastic instructors. Whether you like shaking ‘your thang’ in Zumba or love the variety of a circuit class, there is something for everyone and to suit all abilities. Click on the ‘Timetable’ tab for the full list.
Q: I’ve never used a gym before - will I be shown what to do?
Certainly, we have Gym Inductions where you will be shown by an Instructor how to use the equipment and ease you in gently. If you forget what you’re doing though, it’s OK as there is always an instructor around to help. Also, when you're ready for a change there are loads of different programmes to pick and choose from!
Q: Is the gym supervised and do you have staff?
Yes, we are unique in that we are a service gym with a budget price. In other words we have reception staff here all the time and there is always a gym instructor on the gym floor. So whether you need a hand in the gym or a friendly smile to cheer you up, there’s always someone here!
Q: I’ve heard that most gyms are smelly, dirty and full of meat-heads...is this true?
Some gyms are, but not here! We pride ourselves on keeping the gym clean with no smelly gym socks in sight! There are no meat-heads here either...just nice, friendly members!
Q: I’ve been going to gyms for years but find them boring!
With so many toys there really is no excuse to be bored - let one of our imaginative instructors show you how to use different stuff...
Or pick and choose from one of the many different workout cards?
Or do the Challenge of the Month?
Or why not try one of over 80 classes?
Or try the outdoor training area?
Q: What equipment do you have in the gym?
We have tonnes of stuff, too much to list individually - below is a brief list and why not have a nosey at the gallery to see stuff for yourself!
* Cardio-wise we have got Treadmills, Cross-Trainers, Bikes (upright and recumbent) Steppers, Rowers, Step-Mill, E-Spinner and Turbo-Trainer.
* For resistance we have an extensive range of kit for every body part imaginable! We may be biased but we are the best equipped gym in the area!
* If free-weights are your thing, we’ve got Flat Bench Press, Decline Bench, Adjustable Benches, Smith Machines, Squat Rack, Plate Loaded Leg Press,
T-bar Row, Preacher, Barbells and Dumbbells up to 60kg!

* If all the equipment in the gym isn’t enough for you, there are two large studios, a spinning room and an outdoor functional training area (with Tyres, Monkey-bars, Sled & Battle Ropes) to get some fresh air!
