Welcome to Gymworld.

We have just celebrated a landmark anniversary - 30 years in the fitness business!

Since we opened the doors of our fitness store on 1st March 1984 we have seen many changes. The quality and reliability of home fitness and gym equipment far exceeds the offerings available in the 80`s, and being fit and active as a lifestyle choice is now commonplace and practiced by many of us across all age groups.

We ourselves now operate from much larger premises, and whilst the size of our business has changed our focus on delivering the best advice and service possible remains the same.

Whether you are a new or returning customer we would like to say thanks to you all and look forward to serving you for years to come!
