Which Centre do you use?


What Membership do you have?

All Inclusive

Why did you choose Riversdale?

It’s local, has a great range of facilities e.g. gym, pool and has great selection of fitness classes which are all included in the monthly fee.

How long have you been a member?

1 year inclusive but was previously a member before COVID struck.

What motivates you to exercise?

Health, weight management, mental well-being and fun

What activities do you attend?

Gym, Fitness Classes and Pool

What are your fitness goals?

Maintain a healthy level of fitness and lose a bit of weight.

Are you achieving your goals?

So far so good, slowly but surely and loving it.

Do you feel that our centre has helped you to reach your goals?

If yes, how? Yes. I exercised mainly on my own for the best part of 2021 but with the timing of the fitness classes (HIIT and Studio Cycling) aligned to my work and family life since the start of 2022, I can now concentrate on attending these regularly. Would rather train in a group than individually as it gives you a bit more incentive to push yourself a bit more.

How do you feel about Riversdale since we reopened?

All good, the staff are friendly and very helpful. The fitness instructors are great and supportive. I love the App as it makes it easier to book a session and the range of classes are great.

Do you feel safe using our centre?


Do you have any suggestions for us on how we could improve our service?

None at all. I enjoy the Sauna and Steam Room so I can enjoy some relaxation and recovery after exercising – I can do everything in one visit.

Would you recommend Riversdale to a friend?

Yes, I always do.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

A few different classes, pilates would be nice to avail off or even try but need to be at good times i.e. morning (before work), lunch or evenings (after work)
