Essex Sport Colchester Gym

Our gym is designed to inspire and motivate you to get fit and healthy. With 160 fitness stations in a light, spacious and fully conditioned environment, and our friendly fitness team on-hand, you have everything you need to reach your fitness goals.

Regular exercise carries many physical and mental health benefits. Going to the gym and combining cardiovascular and strength training exercise can help you to stay fit, control weight, reduce stress, improve your brain power, sleep better, and may reduce your risk of developing some types of disease.

Our student, staff and community memberships support you for a healthier lifestyle.
