RPM is a group indoor cycling workout where you control the intensity. It’s fun, low impact and you can burn up to 675 calories a session. With great music pumping and the group spinning as one, your instructor takes you on a journey of hill climbs, sprints and flat riding.

In an RPM workout you repeatedly spin the pedals to reach your cardio peak then ease back down, keeping pace with the pack to lift your personal performance and boost your cardio fitness. RPM is a great way to build up your sense of personal achievement. You can draw on the group’s energy and find your rhythm in the music. You control your own resistance levels and speed so you can build up your fitness level over time. It’s a journey, not a race!


BODYPUMP is THE ORIGINAL BARBELL CLASS, the ideal workout for anyone looking to get lean, toned and fit – fast. Using light to moderate weights with lots of repetition, BODYPUMP gives you a total body workout. It will burn up to 540 calories.

Instructors will coach you through the scientifically-backed moves and techniques pumping out encouragement, motivation and great music – helping you achieve much more than on your own! You’ll leave the class feeling challenged and motivated, ready to come back for more.


Ideal for anyone and everyone, BODYBALANCE is the yoga-based class that will improve your mind, your body and your life.

During BODYBALANCE an inspired soundtrack plays as you bend and stretch through a series of simple yoga moves and embrace elements of Tai Chi and Pilates. Breathing control is a part of all the exercises, and instructors will always provide options for those just getting started. You’ll strengthen your entire body and leave the class feeling calm and centered. Happy.


Aerobics has had a makeover!

Motivational music and movement to help you achieve your fitness and body goals.

A head to toe workout! Sweat, squat and smile to constantly varied choreography. Emphasis is on cardiovascular development and high heart rate while having fun, from ‘2-step’ to flicks and kicks! Finishing with core work and warm down.


HIITSTEP is an innovative 30 minute HIIT exercise class using only bodyweight and a STEP. It has been developed using the expertise and experience from those that have competed for and worked with Team GB!

Designed to bespoke soundtracks that have been created by some of the UK’s top House DJs, HIITSTEP is a high energy class that pushes you to NEW limits.


The HIIT Company brand, brings you the world’s greatest HIIT workouts, created by Olympians, for you. The workouts are designed to shred fat and help you reach peak fitness. The key to getting the most out of your HIIT workouts is to give 100%, so motivational, energetic music is key. The combination of high intensity exercises and house music allows you to immerse yourself in this enjoyable but intense fitness experience which needs no equipment!


On the gym floor, we set aside a session dedicated solely to up to 20 ‘senior’ participants allowing people to take part in a full body ‘circuit’ using a wide range of equipment and gym pieces while ensuring equipment cleaning and distancing can take place. This class will be targeted at a pace suitable for all and of course options will be available dependent upon ability.


What if you could take all of the benefit of your favourite functional gym equipment, the gym atmosphere, a truly motivational instructor, the addition of some body weight work too, and a true ‘High Intensity’ format that is short, sharp quick and highly effective….. Look no further!

MAX 10 HIIT CIRCUIT classes at Empire Gym are all of this and more. A 30 minute class. 10 stations, 10 people, 30 seconds high intensity effort on each station, 10 seconds rest, then move on to the next one… complete the circuit…rest, then do it a second time!!

Think battle ropes, ski ergs, weighted sleds, rowing machines, tyre flips, slam balls, jump squats, rope pulleys, assault bikes, rowing machines and so much more!
