Fitness Republic: Our Philosophy

I truly believe that fitness is for everybody. As I have talked about before, I personally started training at an early age and it was one of the best things I ever did.

You don't have to be an elite sports athlete - I'm not! You don't have to attain to have the physique of a Greek god - I don't! You don’t have to live up to anybody's standards except your own. That's one of the philosophies of Fitness Republic. We want you to be the best you can be in your own skin. Everybody has a different genetic make-up and there are many body types, but what is important is you and your body.

Family is important to us here at Fitness Republic. I started the club with my wife over 11 years ago, and we had a 2 year old little girl with another on the way. I try to encourage them to come to the gym and just be within the environment so hopefully in the years to come they will develop the fitness bug like I did.

Although we regularly have Kids ZUMBA classes in the holidays, this summer saw the start of our Fit Kids Club. Each week we had 4 ½ hours of exercise, learning and craft for 5-12 year olds. It was a great success and so fantastic to see kids excited and enjoying exercise.

You can actually start training from 14 years old at Fitness Republic, all the way up to any age – we have members 70 years plus! We offer unique family memberships to encourage this too. This ties in with another great philosophy of ours that health and fitness should not only be fun but also very social. I have personally made lots of friends at Fitness Republic and love chatting and laughing with everyone in the club.

Today, there are many places to train and ways to keep fit, which is great as its becoming more and more important for us to stay healthy. However, at Fitness Republic we are deeply committed to helping you exercise correctly and safely, as we only have the best instructor team who are dedicated to help you be the very best you can, in an environment that you feel totally at home, confident and at ease.

And now we are striving to give you even more, by extending our venue, improving our facilities, and creating the most professional fitness and well being club dedicated to you and your goals.

We are very proud of what we have achieved here, so let us help you to be proud of what you can achieve too!
