Gym memberships

Our flexible and affordable membership options are open to everybody.

Online memberships and bookings

Issues purchasing memberships online

Some members have reported issues when buying their new memberships online. We have identified the issue with certain browsers so we would suggest trying an alternative browser. 

Issues booking your gym, swim or climbing session

You will be able to book a session after you buy your membership online, however, please allow up to 30 minutes for your information to update. If you try too soon you will see a 'too soon to book' message.

We've simplified our membership options and are offering a 30-day renewable membership for University of Edinburgh students, for University of Edinburgh staff and for the wider community. To help reduce social contacts at our reception desk all memberships must be purchased online. 

Further Information

Existing Members

Direct Debit

  • At this time we are unable to offer Direct Debit as a payment method for memberships. Existing members with a membership paid by annual Direct Debit will be able to renew their membership on a monthly basis online when their current membership expires. 

Group Exercise Classes

  • Group exercise classes are currently suspended due to Government guidelines until at least 17 May 2021.

The Easter Bush Gym

  • Due to its smaller capacity access to the Easter Bush gym is restricted to students and staff of the University of Edinburgh, as well as tenants of the Roslin Innovation Centre. Tenants can purchase a "Staff" membership which includes the use of the Easter Bush gym using their University of Edinburgh visitor card. 

Climbing and Bouldering

  • We won’t be offering a membership that includes climbing at the moment. This is because  we have had to significantly reduce capacity at the climbing wall and in bouldering to comply with social distancing guidance. Instead, it will become a bookable activity (like squash or court sports) with gym members being able to book an hour and a half slot at the wall for only £3 a climb. 

Booking a session

  • Members can only access gyms, the swimming pool, climbing or classes by pre-booking online. You will not be able to access the facilities unless you have pre-booked online. 

Opening dates and our new guidelines

  • In line with the current Scottish Government and University of Edinburgh guidelines, we are continually reviewing our activities and the ways in which we can operate to ensure our member and staff's safety and wellbeing.
