The Gym – 2 options, Liverpool One & Liverpool Central

‘The Gym’ describe their offer as ‘fantastic value for money’ and with standard memberships costing just £15.99 per month, we’re inclined to agree.

Students can claim special discounts on some of The Gym’s monthly membership through UniDays. Simply check the app, sign up for the discount code and return to The Gym Group website to redeem.

Both gyms are open 24/7 but you can check how busy your gym is before visiting by checking The Gym’ app.
