Places Membership

Everyone's a member

Everyone is a member at our place, even if you 'pay as you move'.

We know that physical activity is a habit and that when you make a regular commitment, your activity is much more likely to be sustained. That’s why we encourage our customers to pay for their activities by subscription. For regular visitors it’s cheaper that way too!

But we offer a FREE membership option too for less frequent visitors or those new to exercise - Places Membership. It's perfect for those people looking to visit occasionally. It still has loads of great benefits too:

  • Do you love classes?  7 days advanced booking means you can get to your favourite class – and maybe try some new ones.
  • Our Places Locker App is free - it provides new workouts, challenges to take part in and quick access to online bookings.  Plus, you can pair it with a range of different exercise ‘wearables’ so you can track just how active you are.
  • SWIMTAG is free in addition to a pay as you go swim.  You can use SWIMTAG to monitor and track your progress, access aids and training tools, join challenges or compete with others.
  • If you'd like to use the gym, our introduction is just 15 minutes – our way of saying hello and getting you started. We recommend it, we know some of you just want to get going so we do make it optional. We also offer Your Journey for £40, giving you three 1-on-1 sessions in the gym with a member of our fitness team - a great way to get you started on hitting your goals. Elite athletes have a coach so why not use ours? 
  • If you choose to opt into our marketing emails, we will send you great offers (for when you are ready to take out a subscription membership and start saving!)
