5 Reasons why Clear Fitness is NOT a Gym

When I first decided I wanted to set Clear Fitness up (pretty much 3 years ago now) there was one main thing I had in mind.

I didn’t want it to be like any other gym I had ever been to.

In fact I didn’t even want it to be a ‘Gym’

I had spent 10 years of my life in and around gyms and started to hate it (and I knew a lot of other people that did too).

So my idea was to set ‘something’ up for people who hated gyms.

“How is Clear Fitness Different From Other Gyms?”

1) We have NO Treadmills


It’s actually become a bit of a running joke and even added to our rules board that no one is allowed to ask “where is the treadmill?”

We find treadmills boring (and I’m guessing you do too). Who really wants to feel like a hamster spinning on a wheel?

We have a variety of ropes, sleds, prowlers and other ‘Fun’ pieces of equipment which take care of the cardio/conditioning aspect of your training.

It’s time to enjoy cardio, it doesn’t need to feel like a constant boring battle.

2) We are ‘asshole’ FREE


I’ve been in and around gym for pretty much all of 13 years now, trust me I’ve seen it all.

People flexing, grunting, sitting around on their phones, reading magazines, hogging 10 sets of DB’s (I’m doing a drop-set bro), hogging machines, basically people being annoying and intimidating.

We pride ourselves on not letting those people through our doors.

We work on an application only process, not to try and be ‘snobby’ or ‘exclusive’ but to allow us to get to know people a bit more before we welcome them to our team.

It has took us 3 years to build the supportive, positive and friendly atmosphere we have at Clear Fitness and we will do our very best to ensure we maintain that atmosphere.

3) EVERY session you will be coached


When you sign up to a gym you get shown around and get a quick ‘induction’ if you’re lucky.

Then it’s down to you!

Who walks in a gym and is 100% confident in what they’re doing….

Well, let me tell you, about 5% of people!

The rest hit the treadmill, cross trainer or maybe do a few set of whatever the person next to them is doing.

We will NOT allow that. We ensue every time someone walks through our doors they are coached, they make best use of their time when training.

Whether that’s 1-2-1 or as part of one of our Small Groups no one will ever be stood wondering what they are going to do next, our coaches take care of all that for you herbal slimming tablets.

All you need to do is……. SHOW UP!!

4) No Waiting For Equipment

How bloody annoying is it when someone is sitting on their phone with 4 set’s of DB’s when you just wanna get ‘shit’ done?

Annoying, right? It really used to annoy the hell out of me.

That will never happen at our facilities.

Every session is planned by one of our coaches to make best use of your time and best use of all the equipment.

No more sitting around wasting time and getting annoyed (smiles all round).

5) We have FUN!

Let’s take the last 10 times you went to the gym…..

How many of those sessions did you enjoy? 1, 2 maybe?

Even when you look around in gym , how many people look sick of their life?

The environment you train in and the people you train with rub off on you.

Don’t get me wrong I am not saying you will enjoy every session.

But out of 10 it should more like 8, 9 that you enjoy!

We plan our sessions to put a smile on your face aswell as being effective.

We have a supportive and friendly atmosphere which helps lighten the mood of every session – the people that attend our sessions are the most motivating and friendly people I have ever came across.

Seeing other people smiling and working hard along side you will sharp get that smile on your face.

Don’t allow yourself to be miserable while training, it really doesn’t have to be a chore!


Because you’ve took the time to read this I already believe you are the sort of person we welcome here at Clear Fitness (but if you like to spend your time flexing in mirrors and hogging machine then maybe I got that wrong).

If having fun in an ‘asshole’ free environment while getting results is something that interests you, then you need to get in touch.

We have just opened up the places for our Small Group Personal Training which is a program which has been SOLD OUT for the past 12 months and will no doubt be our most popular service in 2016.

Remember…….. You don’t have to feel uncomfortable, bored or unhappy while exercising.


P.S….Did I mention those places in our Small Groups will sell quicker than TV’s in Asda on Black Friday? So please, if you want in, apply today –
