Check in, work out, go home. For many people, the gym experience has often been about reps, circuits, and focusing exclusively on physical fitness.

At David Lloyd Clubs, we do things differently.

We believe that health clubs should take a 360-degree approach to well-being – helping members take care not only of their physical health, but also emotional wellbeing. A key part of that is providing a place to come together and socialise.

Our programme of social activities does exactly that, offering clubs, events and communities that help members make new connections and boost their mental health.

We’re creating a supportive space where you can take on a new hobby or revisit a passion that you’ve struggled to find time for.

By our members, for our members

Shared interests can turn simple social interactions into lasting friendships. That’s why the team at every David Lloyd club listen closely to members to offer events and activities that suit them. From weekly Walking Clubs to monthly Quiz Nights, members decide much of what’s covered in each club. Book Club attendees, for example, vote on which books to read and discuss.

You can expect your local Club to run a selection of the following, all based on what members want to get involved with:

  • Family discos
  • Book Club
  • Coffee mornings
  • Walking Club
  • Scrabble Club
  • Chess Club
  • Walking football
  • Cinema Club
  • Quiz Night Live
  • Family Pool Parties

Spotlight: The David Lloyd Book Club

Treadmills, cross trainers and… literature? It’s true: since launching just a few months ago, The David Lloyd Book Club has quickly grown. Starting out as a Facebook group where members could share their thoughts on the books they were reading and give others book recommendations, the Book Club now runs regularly in many of our Clubrooms.

More than anything else, this club provides precious opportunities to enjoy the company of fellow book lovers in a warm, welcoming environment.

Members are encouraged to vote for the books they’re going to read, discover new authors and share opinions and emotions based on what they’ve read.

Let’s get social

Recent years have pushed us to be more creative with how we socialise. Our events and activities became important during lockdowns, with members embracing the opportunity to develop and maintain a sense of community – even if it was only virtually at first.

Spending time in each other’s company is a highly effective way to take care of our mental health – whether it’s a group walk before work or a friendly game of Scrabble on a weekday evening. And with get-togethers hosted in our spacious Clubrooms, it’s also a great excuse to indulge your taste buds with a bite to eat or a cup of coffee.

So, if you’re ready to make meet new people with like-minded interests, check in with your local David Lloyd Club or look out for new social clubs, events, and activities via our mobile app.
