You won’t find many Manchester gyms with better facilities than Waterside. Our machines are amongst the very latest on the market and with new additions being added each year, we’re always looking at ways to offer our members the newest fitness trends available. We have extended our dedicated Resistance Area, making it bigger than most Manchester Gyms, and have also created a stand-a-lone Functional Training Area fully equipped for all types of training including HIIT, core, boxing, lifting, functional movement and more. With our Ladies’ Only Gym (one of the only Ladies’ Only Gyms in Manchester) and our separate Thermal Suites and Hydrotherapy Pool, which sets us apart from most Manchester gyms, 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, perfect for all your workout needs.


Be inspired by the BOX12 experience, an in-club offering that delivers a functional fitness and boxing workout, which utiliises the latest technology to optimise your training and gurantee results.

Thermal Suites

Our Thermal Suites and Hydrotherapy Pool add a completely new dynamic to your Didsbury Gym membership, with relaxation at the heart of this area, it really is the perfect place to unwind.
