Atlas Gymnasium is a multifaceted gym with true character, located just outside the city centre you’re welcomed by a warm community feel.

Owners and operators Rich & James have created a unique space fit for a range of of exercise programs and requirements.

Applying their exercise science degrees, James and Rich have hand-picked equipment with diverse functionality, allowing users to get creative and push their body in new ways. All members will also have the option of having their current physicality and health assessed at the start of their membership to ensure pinpoint accuracy when it comes to designing your individualized exercise program. Whatever your needs or desires, they can show you how to get there, the right way.

 Retrofitted in an old Addington warehouse, some serious local work went into getting the space up to scratch. The vintage themed artworks around the gym, designed by family members, pay homage to the bygone eras of strength training while immersing Atlas members in the world of exercise. The availability of chalk is also there, to help you squeeze out that last rep. 

 Sometimes the best way to warm down from setting your new personal best is a cheeky game of darts or ping pong. These facilities add to the friendly and social environment you’ll find at Atlas.
