Solace Gym is the shared vision of Lawrence and Louise. We wanted to create something that none of us has ever found before in Cheltenham. A place where exercise is accessible to all. Somewhere it doesn’t matter what you wear, whether you have anyone to come with, how fit you are or if you know a kettlebell from a cowbell! Solace is a judgement free, fun and vibrant class-based gym handily situated in the Leckhampton area of Cheltenham at the far end of Liddington Industrial Estate on Old Station Drive, Leckhampton Road.
Just a few minutes’ walk from Bath Road, easily reached on foot or by bike, bus (the F bus stops by the entrance to the industrial estate) or car, Solace Gym has a core of circuit-style classes with an ever-changing timetable of additional fun, peaceful, energetic and exciting classes to keep you from ever getting ‘fit fatigued’! We believe we have something for everyone. We even have wrestling classes available for any The Rock or Sasha Banks wannabes!
Not just a gym though, Solace also has a café area for pre or post workout socialising and refuelling and upstairs we have a serviced office area and hot-desking for all of the work from home-ers who have had enough of their own four walls or need a space to meet with clients. With our two meeting rooms for hire as well, we believe we have everything covered that you might need in a day and think we are pretty unique to Cheltenham.
We do things a little bit differently here at Solace, as you may notice when you see our fabulous 80s theme décor! Never ones to take ourselves too seriously, (except when it comes to class planning and health and safety of course!) this carries over to our relaxed and fun vibe, our aim is to generate the feel-good factor for every single one of our members so everyone leaves feeling better than when they walked in. Knowing that anxiety is a large factor in starting somewhere new, we have a video walk through so you know exactly where you’re going and our friendly staff are always on hand to answer questions and offer reassurance.
You can also find us on social media to get some familiarity before you arrive, feel free to send us a message and say hi. We also have an exclusive facebook group for members and hold social events and relaxed ‘cardio and coffee’ sessions for anyone who wants to stick around after class and get to know more like-minded people.
