The Gym

At Horwich Leisure Centre, we've got 3 new Fitness Spaces each fully air conditioned with state of the art equipment.

We're a gym for everyone. Know your way around cardio and resistance kit? You'll love it here. We've got a large free weights area and a Synergy 360T multi-gym. Our range of cardio kit will satisfy any seasoned calorie burner.

And if you're new to gyms, take advantage of our free inductions for members. Our team of fitness champions will find the bits of kit that work best for you.

Our gym instructors know what it's like for newbies, being in a strange room full of weird looking fitness equipment. And they'll have you up and running, or cross training, in no time!
