Gym Manchester


You won’t find many Manchester gyms with better facilities than Waterside. Our machines are amongst the very latest on the market. We know this because we update them regularly. Our most recent improvements include updates to our Ladies’ Only Gym (one of the Only Ladies’ Only Gyms in Manchester) and our dedicated Resistance Area (which is bigger than most Manchester Gyms). With our Thermal Suites and Hydrotherapy Pool now complete, we are making plans to improve the gym once more. We’d love for you to join us as we continue to make changes to our lovely Didsbury Gym.

Leisure Facilities

Pool And spa

We have one of the biggest swimming pools in Didbury. And it’s a good thing because it has room for Aqua, swimming lessons, lane swimming and a dedicated children's lane!

Fitness Suite

Sometimes a gym can feel intimidating. We know this. That’s why we have designed our gym to be different. And trained our staff to be different too!

Personal Training

Self motivation is not always easy. Our PT staff understand this. They all have different specialisms, so there’s someone trained to to suit your needs perfectly.

Ladies Only Gym

At the Waterside we offer a gym exclusively for our female members.
Only accessible off the Ladies' Changing Room, this smaller gym has a wide range of CV and Resistance machines for ladies who want to go at their own pace away from the main gym areas.

Personal Training

Our PT staff are highly skilled – but very down to earth. That’s why they are gaining a great reputation for Personal Training in Didsbury and Manchester. Because whatever your goal – our trainers can help. From weight loss and fitness, to specific training targets, they will inspire you.

Thermal Suites

Our new Thermal Suites & Hydrotherapy Pool are now open and we think you’ll agree it adds a completely new dynamic to your Didsbury Gym membership

Swim Tag and Swimming Lessons

From first introduction to the water, to advanced lessons and stroke development, our lessons are key. And with swim tag you can keep track of your exercise.


You won’t find many Manchester gyms that are more family friendly than Waterside. From Taekwondo and swimming lessons to Junior Boxercise.
