Temple Gym

But hold on…

Because Temple Gym is welcoming, to every single person who walks through their door. 

The venue boasts a full range of cardio equipment and dumbbells, fitness studio and functional training.

Once upon a time, Temple gym was a hardcore bodybuilding gym but the time and money invested has created a real state-of-the-art fitness facility.
