Sessions and classes for all
Gym, classes and wellness
We're dedicated to helping our members stay fit and well in whatever way suits them. That's why we've developed a comprehensive plan to ensure we can provide you with the support you need.
We offer a range of memberships to suit you, depending on your needs, from Swim Only deals to our all-encompassing Premium Plus membership.
Alternatively, we also welcome day visitors - find out how to create your free Places membership and claim your day pass.
Your first gym visit
To familiarise you with the gym and to get to know your goals we'd like to offer you a short introduction to the gym. This can be booked with a member of the team when you join. Premium members can book their introduction when joining online. We're aware some customers may want to just get going - so the introduction is optional. However, we'll always ask you to accept our Health Commitment Statement before your first visit.
Our current gym opening times are as follows:
Monday to Friday: 6.00am – 10.00pm
Saturday and Sunday: 7.00am – 8.00pm
Take a virtual tour
Want to take a look at our gym and the rest of the centre before your visit? Our virtual tour allows you to explore everything we have to offer.
Our classes are social, fun and a really good workout. They range from low impact to the more intense and guide you through every step with our fantastic instructors. You can enjoy our classes with a friend or meet new people each week.
Personal training isn’t just for celebrities - everyone can benefit from some extra motivation.
You might have a particular event or goal, or you may just want a bit of extra encouragement during your session. Our trainers have different specialisms but are all focused on supporting you through fun and engaging sessions. Ask a member of the team for more details or call us on 01304 201145.
Exercise referral scheme
Exercise Referral is a formalised method of enabling those with certain medical conditions, and health risks, to access exercise in a safe and effective manner. Having been referred by a registered health professional you have the reassurance of knowing that physical activity is considered to be appropriate for you.
We believe a physically active child is much more likely to become a physically active adult.
We run a range of gym sessions and classes aimed specifically at our younger visitors.
It's worth remembering that our Premium memberships include the option to add four free juniors to your membership.

Dover District Leisure Centre is one of dozens of Places Leisure venues currently offering our Long COVID Recovery Programme.
