THE GYM HUB WICKFORD: Who Are We?

The Gym Hub is the low-cost gym brand from leisure trust Impulse Leisure. The brand was created in winter 2014 and brings a new perspective on the concept of ‘budget gyms’. The Gym Hub has broken the mould and pushed the boundaries of what a budget club is all about, offering high-end facilities with a zero contract of £20.00 a month!

Our first site in Wickford (Essex) is a fitness facility that is unique in its approach. Visitors immediately notice the difference the minute they walk through our door. We have removed the typical gym perceptions and created a contemporary, stylish retail feel. Our approach is that we can’t make the gym sessions easier for people, but we can make them more bearable. Everyone is a different shape or size and has their own challenges and we are committed to help as much or as little as they choose.

The Gym Hub offers a comprehensive gym utilising the latest in technology via Technogym’s cloud based solution. With use of the Technogym Wellness key, we are able to help members of all experience levels and walks of life - be it first time users or elite athletes - each member is able to select programmes based around their goals and track everything they do inside the club. The Wellness cloud also gives our members the opportunity to log their activity outside of the club giving an overall view of their fitness and activity. For those who are looking for a little more motivation, personal training is provided through our own brand - Lime Personal Training.

Our counterparts in the budget gym market can often be clean & clinical in their design. The Gym Hub has embraced its natural surroundings and has fitted into the heartbeat of the local community as if it were part of the family. As you walk through The Gym Hub in Wickford it is clear to see the gym has industrialism running through its veins. From the wood pallet clad effect in key areas of the gym to the exposed breeze block walls as you enter the changing rooms, you can tell a lot of time has gone into the club’s design of creating a fun and exciting environment for members and staff to be in.


The Gym Hub isn't our first try at the fitness industry, we've had 20 years of experience! Impulse Leisure, the parent company, also manages Adur Community Leisure (ACL) and Thurrock Community Leisure (TCL). Our centres include Belhus Park, Blackshots, Chanctonbury, Corringham, Lancing Manor, Southwick and Wadurs Pool, offering affordable first class fitness for the whole family.

Impulse Leisure's registered charity numbers are ACL 1112020, TCL 1080186.
