What our members say…

Christine
Riverside has everything that you could possibly need to have a good workout. It provides excellent value for money in a pleasant, friendly environment.
Lucy
I’m an overweight middle-aged woman. Riverside is the only gym that I was made to feel comfortable and welcome at. I now enjoy coming to the gym!
Peter
Riverside is a great gym for all of the family. The membership plan is really flexible - you can suspend it for a period of time to avoid paying when you're not going to use it.
Dave
The thing I love the most is the family atmosphere. You can get on with the staff like they’re your mates and the classes are always good.
Chris
Riverside is the best gym I’ve ever had the privilege to be a member of! You can tell that the staff genuinely care about the members and their environment.
