Membership – Frequently asked questions

No. Simply Gym is a not for profit company based in Wales. In the 9 years we have been operating our gyms we have re-invested all our profits and maintained, what we believe is, a fantastic low price for the quality and range of services we offer to our members.

We are now faced with a global pandemic which threatens to destroy people’s lives but also destroy our business. Despite the UK Government’s announcements, about support with 80% of wages and loan schemes, we still have large costs which remain in our business including rents, equipment costs and other commitments – these continue despite our gyms being closed. This is why we are asking our members to keep their memberships current and not cancel or freeze them. It is not about Simply Gym making money but rather about us keeping the business afloat and being able to re-open our clubs when the situation improves.

We recognise that if members are still paying, they deserve something in return. This is why we have sent out Les Mills on demand classes, have committed to a helpline for members, have a member App offering programmes and are planning an online offering of work outs, programmes and other support. We genuinely believe that maintaining physical activity during these times is vital for physical and mental health and we are committed to helping members with this. We are also committing to a “Price for Life’ for all members who keep their membership current.

We also know these are difficult times for everyone and some people may not be in a position to continue to pay. If this is the case, we are offering all members the ability to freeze their membership until the clubs re-open. As we don’t handle the direct debit payments directly, these changes will need to be made through Harlands.
