Who are we?

We’re Total Fitness, a leading health club brand with 15 clubs across the North of England and Wales. For nearly three decades, we’ve had a strong belief that everyone is better fitter, and that belief is stronger than ever in 2023.

We know that true fitness needs variety to keep workouts fresh and engaging, so our large health clubs offer many ways to workout; extensive gym floors, over 70 classes, impressive swimming pools, expert personal trainers, and digital content - allowing our members to workout wherever and whenever they want.

If there's one thing we're sure of, it's that movement is good for you. And that goes far beyond just moving our bodies. Joining the team here at Total Fitness, means the freedom to move your own way, along your own path, constantly finding new ways to reach your full potential - whatever success looks like for you.

We support one another, take the initiative and tackle each challenge head on, because we want to provide exceptional experiences for both our team and our members. We celebrate together, get stuck in together, and we help each other through. We can’t promise it will be easy, but we can promise it will be worth it - and that’ll be a lot of fun.

Here, you’ll have the backing of the whole team; a crowd of supporters who want to help you be more, and do more, than perhaps even you thought possible.

This is where movement happens, this is where you get going and keep going.

This is where more is possible.

Our team want you to know

"Since joining the club I’m proud to say that my confidence has grown and it’s made me a happier and more outgoing person. Getting back into the gym has also improved mental and physical health too."

Kirsty, Front of House, Lincoln

"You come into work at Total Fitness and there is just such an amazing feeling in the building. We have members here that are so friendly and you really get to know these people and feel part of their health journey. It’s a really positive environment to work in."

Adam, Membership Team, Preston

"Everything that I do now in my role, I never thought I’d get the opportunity to do. I didn’t expect to develop as I have done and would never have thought I’d be sat where I am now with the new skills I’ve learnt. I wouldn’t of dreamed of running pool plant rooms when I first started and now it’s like second nature and is one of the most enjoyable parts of the job."

Jack, Facilities Team, Wakefield

"I've been able to have a balanced lifestyle - something I've found hard to achieve. I learn more in the IT world each day, and continue to keep active. I'm proud that I've achieved this balance after struggling with finding it for so long."

Matt, Central Support Team, Wilmslow

"I’m fairly new to the business and have already learned how to organise and deliver the boot camp classes which was a new experience for me. I also got the opportunity to participate in video filming of digital content and the experience was great. Both boot camp and video filming boosted my confidence and given me opportunities to try new things"

Mustansar, Fitness Team, Bolton

"You can push yourself out of your comfort zone here, you’ll get the opportunity to do things you wouldn’t normally do, without fear of being judged if you make mistakes."

Dave, General Manager at Altrincham

"I really like working at Total Fitness, helping our all the people that we’ve got. We have some fantastic facilities, lots of different ways of working out, encouraging people of all ages and motivations to simply become better every day."

Johnny, General Manager at Wakefield
