Inclusion and Belonging
Being a diverse and inclusive business matters. It’s not just because it’s the right thing to do or even because it makes commercial sense. It means so much more than that. We believe diversity and inclusion needs to be at the heart of everything we represent - our purpose, our values and our behaviours.

They work tirelessly with enthusiasm, perspective, drive and passion to identify and tackle barriers to ensure The Gym Group is accessible for all.
