Who we are

Who we are


The first Fitness First club opened in 1993, in the seaside town of Bournemouth, Dorset – historically known as a popular health resort. Today we have clubs in 16 countries, making us a leader in the global fitness industry.

We’ve seen a lot of change in the fitness industry over the years, but our philosophy has remained the same: to offer the best equipment, range of classes, knowledgeable staff and personal advice in a welcoming environment that feeds our members’ motivation. 


We want to help our members go further, so if you have any suggestions about our clubs, classes, personal training sessions or anything else, please come in and talk to one of our team member. Or if you prefer, drop us a note via our online enquiry forms.

We are an ambitious company and we’re always looking for great people to join our team – from personal trainers, group exercise instructors and club managers to our front-of-house teams. We’re committed to training, so you’ll be encouraged to improve your existing skills while you develop new ones.
