St. Paul's Gym

Olympic platforms, dumbbells from 2-50kg, smith machines, hex bars and plenty of benches. Whether its chest or leg day, you will have everything you need to help you work towards new PB's. With a base in the gym for our instructors, you can always find us for a spot, or a spot of advice.

Cybex Treadmills, Wattbikes, X Trainers, Dynamic Rowers, an Assault Bike, and Stairmaster. Get your heart pumping towards a new 5k PB or row your way to a healthier, fitter version of yourself. The coolest place to be when you're sweating out.

The movement patterns of our machines help keep your body moving in the right direction. Forwards towards that goal.

Think cable machines, core bags, slam balls, kettlebells, plyo boxes. Jump into an AMRAP or swing your way through an EMOM. If you've become tired of cardio or weights we have enough kit for you to play around with. Keep challenging your body in different ways, get stronger and get fitter.

St. Paul's Gym

St. Paul's Gym will close for general use just before Ravelin Sports Centre opens.

We're based in the heart of the campus and are less than a 10 minute walk from most university buildings and halls. We have air conditioned rooms, BT Sport on the TV's (catch those midweek Champions League games) and we have the cheapest multi activity membership in the city, why wouldn’t you visit.

St Paul's Gym is open from 6.30am-10.30pm, Monday-Friday and 7.00am-9.00pm, Saturday-Sunday. We're not a 24 hour facility, but we believe you should have someone there to help at all times (that's us).
