Sport, Gyms and Fitness

Been coming here for over 5 years & it's consistently good on all fronts, layout, equipment, diversity, cleanliness & the staff qualities always been fantastic... Sure there's been times when things breakdown or arent available (like water fountains, swimming pool etc) but overall it's decent & things work way more than they don't, which considering their constant use isn't bad going. More recently, after a some refurbishment work to a number of areas within the club there's been some great additions/improvements to the facilities. The gym itself has some state of the art stuff, plenty of weights, cardio & resistance kit to use along with a couple decent sized studios where the classes take place & when free you can use as you like really. I've check almost all the gyms in Swindon out & a few out of town & can honestly say this place has one of the best changing areas, certainly the best I've seen in Swindon. Albeit a little tired now, so would expect this might be next thing they refurbish. The food area is great & definitely better since the last redesign. The kids area is decent & since upgraded to a softplay area with slide, some games & some fixed tablets with restricted age appropriate games, it keeps many children busy whilst their parent/guardians chill nearby with some food, coffee or just good company with friends. There's a quiet/adult zone, too which many people use as a second office of sorts. Especially good since it's refurbishment a couple years ago, because now there's a couple proper workstations along with a number of other seating arrangements easy for laptop work & a relaxed work atmosphere for people who can work remotely. Some people use the space for small meetings with colleagues or clients alike. I've used it's over the years for a queit spot away from the mainstream to get work done. Aside from kids classes like tennis, swimming etc, I know first hand that if your child is added as a member (small monthly fee), you can utilise their crèche on specific days for additional hourly cost & as they get past 5 years old, there's a kids club. Our boy was coming here from as young as they'd take him so my other half could get a bit of fitness in on week days & I'd utilise it on the weekends to either work out or catch up with work.

Can be quieter than other gyms. 2016 saw a big investment into the gym (various parts - equipment/refresh of facilities). New management have pulled the club back, one point I was debating leaving but through investment in the actual gym I decided to stay. As for price wise it is expensive, I decided to pay the premium cause it makes me go. I see the large sum leave my bank and know to get value for money I need to go a certain number of times. I do think they are not fully 5 star worthy yet though close but may need to do small improvements.

Halo Highworth Recreation Centre

The Elms, Highworth, Swindon SN6 7DD, UK – 01793 762602

Went to centre got a online booking card tried at several times for aqua aerobics first at 7am in the morning no places. Went on again to book Monday said 7 spaces unable to proceed with booking sadly £5 wasted for booking card as it seems rather hopeless to try and book online. Staff on reception on visit very helpful at the time of my visit to the centre.

It has an excellent pool.

I love the training the atmosphere I've loved putting the gloves back on great motivation helped me with my fitness and confidence back honest you won't be sorry. It's the best thing I've done very helpful no egos just honest hard work and real martial arts and boxing. Karl wilkinson

Brilliant classes for children and adults. I'm currently doing the Road To Glory programme and can't recommend it enough for people to do. Fantastic coaches and Jason O'Grady is a credit to what he does. Swindon are very lucky to have someone like him 👌🏻👌🏻
