NEW INDIE: FitLife opens news gym in Summertown

 In News

Founded in 2016, FitLife gym was created by husband-and-wife duo Steve and Jess Gregory to help people make fitness a part of their daily lives, with wellbeing at its core. After launching their successful first gym in Haddenham, the team are opening a brand new gym in Summertown on 14th November 2022.

FitLife UK was founded by husband-and-wife team Steve and Jess Gregory in 2016. Tired of seeing busy, impersonal gyms that were focussed on the number of members and not the membership experience, Steve and Jess set out to change the way their local community saw and experienced fitness.
A former professional football player, Steve knew a thing or two about fitness. How to keep fit was second nature to him. How to ensure others, no matter their fitness level could feel the benefits without being put off by your typical gym, was the problem he wanted to solve, and he knew he needed to create something different. After retiring from the beautiful game, Steve started bootcamps in his Mum’s back garden. These quickly became so popular Steve needed a new home for his growing fitness community.

That’s where FitLife Haddenham was born. A lot of graft to turn what was an old GP surgery into what’s now a thriving boutique gym with 600+ members, and a venue that’s truly at the heart of the local area, FitLife UK has one goal – for people to feel fit and love life. There’s a huge emphasis on inclusivity, from the diverse age range of members, to those that have never trained before, becoming gym regulars. Of late, those struggling with mental health issues as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and Ukrainian refugees have made FitLife a part of their daily activity.

Building on this success, Steve and Jess are now embarking on a project to expand what FitLife has to offer, this time for local residents in Summertown, Oxfordshire.
What was a bank, FitLife is set to make its mark on Summertown Parade. From the warm welcome members will receive as they arrive through the front door and order their favourite shake (Steve’s favourite is the dreamy PB), to the well-equipped gym floor, awesome showers and a recovery room for those well-earned massages, not to mention a bright and airy yoga studio, the team at FitLife Summertown are looking forward to being part of the Summertown community.

FitLife Summertown will feature:

  • A juice bar – order a vegan-friendly shake before your workout and pick up on your way out or enjoy at FitLife’s communal table and get to know other FitLife members
  • Functional training areas – designated areas for all members training needs, from weights to the best equipment, and plenty of it so no waiting for a squat rack, there are four. Plus the class spaces are pretty awesome too.
  • Top-class personal trainers, instructors and front of house crew – FitLife prides itself on it’s staff. Being a member means you’ll feel like part of the FitLife family, the team embody the FitLife values, creating a culture people want to work in and a gym people want to be members of.
  • Over 50 classes – from ‘Fire to Fight’, ‘Fury to Flow’, and ‘Spin’, there’s something for everyone throughout the day.
  • Flexible memberships – From pay as you go, to special memberships for the first 500 joiners, there’s a membership to suit every FitLifer. Family memberships and student discounts are available to.
  • Workshops, events and community – FitLife offers so much more than your average gym. Whether it’s taking on the Three Peaks Challenge or learning how to practice a pull up, the FitLife way means members will get to take part in exciting events too.

Founder Steve said, “When we started FitLife, we saw there was a real need for a friendly environment for people to train in, without judgement, whoever they are and whatever they’re going through. In the six years since we started, I’ve seen first-hand the difference having an inviting space to exercise in can be. FitLife is more than a gym, it’s a community, a safe place for people to train. Since the pandemic, I’ve seen an even greater need for access to fitness of this kind. I am excited, no I feel privileged, to bring our Fitlosophy (our ethos) to the residents of Summertown and can’t wait for this beautiful adventure to begin. Sometimes, the hardest weight to lift is the door and I’m determined to open the door to all who want to feel fitter and live a life with greater health outcomes – I can’t wait to meet our future members, team and fellow local businesses.”

FitLife Summertown opens on the 14th November 2022.

FitLife pre-sale membership is now live. The first 100 members can benefit from a 10% discount, with only 500 memberships available in total.

The timetable is now live too, to check out what’s in store at FitLife Summertown.
