Quite simply, there is no facility like this in the UK! The Athlete Factory facility has been designed using our coaches’ vast experience in elite sport, training methodology, and an understanding of what actually gets results. The flow, style and range of equipment offers ALL our users the type of facility that is usually only accessed by professional sports teams and individuals.

With a Wattbike studio, fuel bar, changing rooms, world class equipment, combined with the Athlete Factory knowledge, it’s the perfect training facility for all those who are serious about their health, fitness, or sport.

World Class Equipment

Our facility is kitted out with 13 lifting racks (12 connected with monkey bars etc) and 7 embedded lifting platforms, posterior chain equipment, 20m turf, activation area, free weights, kettlebells, belt squat, cable machine, harnesses, sleds, strongman equipment, TRX, ropes, medicine balls & wall, power mats, Wattbikes, rowing machines, ski ergs, and woodway treadmills, just to name a few… All this on world class performance flooring throughout.

Our equipment is all provided by our facility partners MFitness and flooring by Mondo, which supply global leading gyms and professional organisations.


Wattbike is the chosen indoor training tool used by Olympic champions, professional athletes and officially endorsed by British Cycling. Wattbikes are engineered to enhance the performance of any athlete — whether you’re a complete beginner or an elite athlete.

A smooth ride mimics the feel of the road and their cutting-edge digital technology measures over 40 different aspects of your ride. Real time feedback provides you with everything you need to know about your performance, helping you track progress as your training develops. Here at AF, we have our own Watt Bike Studio for both classes and individual hire.

At the Athlete Factory, we understand that nutrition is the key that unlocks results from the training. That is why our Fuel Bar is crucial to the AF Facility. Not only to support the programming through pre & post nutrition, but to be a focal point for the members. It also allows members to relax with a coffee.

The bar has a range of smoothies created by our in-house nutritionists and some options that are the Greening family favourites. Plus the option to make create your own pre or post workout drink from a range of healthy ingrediants plus Applied Nutrition sports supplements who work with many elite teams and individuals and who are Sport Assured.

A Clean, Safe and Healthy Environment

All Signs are pointing towards us being able to reopen soon. We are currently following advice from UKactive who are advising the government on how gyms can reopen. To all our members and The AF Family Thank you for your continued support.

At The Athlete Factory we have always tried to maintain the highest standard of hygiene as the health and wellbeing of The AF Family has always been our priority. The severity of Covid 19 outbreak now means those standards are even more important.

Just to clarify on the current status. We are still closed to the public but our gym office (Matt's house with a diverted phone) will be open Mon to Fri between the hours of 09:30 and 16:30 if you need to call to speak to someone. Or you can email Matt on

We are sharing workouts, tips and information via social media and this is being added to our BLOGS as well. Take a look!

Stay safe and well everyone and thank you for your patience and continued support as we respond to the current climate.
