Lifestyle Fitness Ancoats
With its marble changing rooms, split-level design, and hip class brand, Lifestyle Fitness Ancoats is a ‘flagship’ gym for this nationwide chain.
Like its sister gym on Mosley Street, it has enlisted Manchester brand V1BE to deliver most of its classes. They typically mix treadmill sprints with weights or functional training, and sometimes boxing drills, all to a playlist curated to keep your energy levels high. Yoga classes cater for those seeking something less intense.
If you prefer to train alone rather than join a class, you can do that here (membership options cover both). There’s a good range of CV and strength equipment including free weights and functional training areas. The floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking busy Great Ancoats Street will be a plus-point for some and a no-no for others. Just tell yourself; they’re not watching you, you’re watching them.
