A bit about why we do, what we do
At Virgin Active our aim is simple; we want to enrich people's lives through Activeness. We believe that with the right encouragement and the setting of realistic goals you can feel great, look better and live happily ever active.
Fitness clubs like no other
We believe our fitness clubs are quite simply world class. They include ice rooms, steam rooms, experiential showers and large spacious workout areas and heaps of the latest equipment. We offer hundreds of group exercise classes every week and we're always introducing fun new ways to workout. Our team of staff is there to support and motivate you to achieve your goals. We offer all members a free one-on-one session with a trainer when they start, plus the option of free catch-up sessions to keep you on track.
This isn’t a gym membership - it’s a healthy relationship. So come join us at Virgin Active and live happily ever active.
Fitness clubs built with a certain 'Virgin-ness'
Virgin Active is part of the Virgin Group, founded by Sir Richard Branson. Since opening its first club in the UK in 1999, it has since grown to become the leading international global health club operator with over 1.4 million members and 234 clubs spanning eight countries (South Africa, UK, Italy, Australia, Namibia, Botswana, Thailand and Singapore). Our purpose is to make exercise irresistible, by providing its members with leading expertise, superb innovation and the best clubs.
We’re a globally recognised brand, yet we pride ourselves on our personal approach and providing the very best service to our members. We’re about relationships, not memberships. And in this way we hope to support people to become more active in all aspects of their lives.
That's the way we roll
We love to challenge convention and think “outside the box”. That's why we offer innovative features such as Relax and Recovery Zone, Altitude Room, Salt Room, Sleep Pods, PowerPlates, Olympic Weightlifting zones; and exciting new classes, plus fair and transparent membership options which are easy to understand.
We have big plans. We aim to open more fitness clubs, all maintaining the very high standards we have set and offering our members a fitness club experience that is second to none.
