Work all over the country, have to go to a different gym every week. Empire was 11 miles away from where we were staying in Peterborough, so a bit of a trek, and we were dubious in going so far for what seemed a different gym. Was worth every mile. The best equipped, friendliest gym we have ever been to, after 10 years working away. Great equipment in great condition, dumbells up to 70kg. Owners and clientele are the friendliest we've come across, especially for two northern s--t houses just walking in! 6 benches, which for the size was more than enough, never waiting more than a minute for anything, dumbells go up to whatever you need. Literally, the only criticisms I can give are - it's a bit out of the way (but worth it), and the squat rack was being hogged every day (but I'm happy for a reason to put legs off another day). Just wish it was closer to home. Best gym we've been to, from Aberdeen to Jersey, in 10 years.

Awesome gym. Friendly and helpful owners as too are all the staff. The kit is amazing and everything is kept clean and in top condition. The changing rooms are excellent too. A great vibe makes training here a lot of fun.

After being humiliated by staff at Bannatynes i never thought i would step foot in a gym again. After staff laughing at me and saying i was 'unsuitable' for a gym due to my long-term illness. However, after spending a few hours at Empire I can honestly say Matt and all the staff plus everyone else working out at the gym are a joy to be around and are really lovely and genuine. For me its not about money or inconvenience its about my own confidence and being accepted for me. I cant recommend Empire gym enough. If youve tried other gyms and felt umcomfortable or out of your depth before this is the gym for you! X

An incredibly welcoming gym with fantastic staff. With my disability I automatically assumed 99% of the equipment would be 'out of reach', but I was soon proved wrong by the wholey dedicated owner Matt. They have some real state-of-the-art machines there. In a nutshell, there is something for everyone. Would recommend this fantastic place without any hesitation.

Just out of curiosity I weighed myself today for the first time in years since having 3 children and was kind of surprised to see I weighed more! However, for the first time in years I feel fitter, stronger, healthier and more toned and not to mention a dress size smaller! It's all thanks to the support, courage and amazing service provided by empire gym, so I just wanted to say thank you! And .... Too all you ladies that weigh yourself stop! Just think about how far you've come, how much better you feel and how fab you look!

I've tried a number of gyms in my life and this one really is towering over the rest. Your could pay twice the money and get no where near the quality of equipment and instructors or the friendliness of the staff. i initially started going to the spin class on Saturday and have graduated to the Body Combat classes just on a pay as you go basis but the value for money you get by using the classes only membership is fantastic.
The problem with alot of gyms is that they are gyms and gyms don't normally bode well for social interaction and friendliness. they are normally places where people go to lift weights. Not at Empire. The focus of Empire is fun. Have fun and you'll enjoy yourself, If you enjoy yourself, you'll keep coming back and having more fun, with friends and fantastic instructors.
Spinning is a massive rush on a Friday evening, Body Balance on a Tuesday is amazing and tonight is Body Combat for some eyes out, cant breath enough, knees high, going to drop any minute, but must keep going. RUNNING MAAAAAANN!!!!!!

Big enough to cope! Small enough to care! Joined Empire Gym last month, already feeling the benefit of the spinning! Friendly staff and coaches in a lovely new equipped location, right on your doorstep! Great!

Started using the gym recently for various reasons and found it very welcoming. Always greeted with a smile and the staff are very open minded and full of great ideas :-)

I have been converted to a gym lover!
I've tried several gyms in my time, but have never managed to stick at it, until I joined empire gym.
I was feeling rather nervous before my induction but Matt put me at ease straight away and I haven't looked back. They care about why you are there, encourage & motivate you. The staff are always friendly, welcoming and approachable which makes such a difference.
Matt showed me how I can have a good work out in just half an hour so I can squeeze a session in to any busy day.
All the equipment it top notch and easy to use. But If I have any questions there's always someone around to ask.
The facilities are great too, and always clean. Having showers with shampoo & shower gel provided and hair dryer and straighteners means there's no excuse to not go before work - you can even hire towels!
I miss the gym the days I don't do, which have never been the case in the past, and that's down to the amazing team. Thank you :)

Being busy working parents of 3 doesn't leave us with much time but since the opening of empire gym we've both found somewhere on our doorstep that fits in around our lifestyle. The fab option of being able to do a joint membership is really cost effective and allows both of us to either use the gym (in his case) or the studio classes (in my case)!
The wide variety of classes means I can go at all different times of day to work around the kids. It's worked out really well for us! The instructors are friendly and very knowledgeable and make fitness enjoyable without being pushy or intimidating and as an added bonuses we've made some new friends!
