The staff are happy and willing to help with new exercise ideas...

I love the classes at the centre and always a really friendly atmosphere up in the gym! The staff are happy and willing to help with new exercise ideas and always come across as enthusiastic and approachable.  The online booking system is really easy to use and handy to be able to manage your own class bookings.

...so interactive and providing such amazing care.

I would just like to say how impressed I am with the care and activities that my daughter gets in the Crèche in Edenbridge over the last month. Claire is fantastic she not only offers a variety of activities for the children but reads stories to them and educated them. So refreshing to have a crèche member of staff so interactive and providing such amazing care.

Hannah Cornish

I think it’s one of the most inclusive places I have been to.

All the soft play staff are very lovely to my younger daughter who has severe autism and go out of their way to be kind to her and my older daughter when they come to play. It makes things a lot easier for me and they show a genuine interest in both of them. I think it’s one of the most inclusive places I have been to.

Jill Shearer

All of the parents were really impressed...

We had a Christmas party in Treasure Island today and I just wanted to say thank you to all the staff. It was really well organised and all the children’s food and the sandwich platters for the adults were lovely. All of the parents were really impressed and the children had a great time. The staff were all so friendly too. I will definitely book a party again!

Jill Shearer

All of the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful.

The instructors are very professional and enthusiastic; I especially like the early classes as they fit well into my routine. GRIT and Sencio Cycle with Phil are awesome and get me going for the day. They are both tough classes, but having an instructor that motivates and pushes you is brilliant.

Natasha Goodman

...instructors are all really friendly, full of enthusiasm...

Great choice of classes that really fit in with my busy work schedule! Particularly love Sencio Cycle and all of the new Les Mills classes. The team of instructors are all really friendly, full of enthusiasm and keen to keep things changing!  The atmosphere is always good at the centre whether it’s classes or gym. Online booking system is a really useful option, but the staff at reception are always on hand to assist and help with any queries!
