It has a water fountain, sound system and a non-gendered changing area including a cubicle (but no shower).

There is also pre-loved and vintage box of donated fitness clothing in the changing rooms which is for anyone to use and either keep, or wash and return.

It’s used for a free weekly programme of fitness classes for the LGBT community and can also be booked for a workout in small groups (bookings need to be made in advance – contact activate@blgbt.org. Two or more people are needed for safety as the room is in a former bank vault in the basement of the building  and doesn’t have mobile signal!) or hired by personal trainers for private clients.

It’s suitable for up to 8-14 people, depending on the activity.
