Our Values

David Lloyd has been helping families lead healthy and active lives for more than 40 years. We’re passionate about making our clubs a comfortable and welcoming place to come together with friends, family and fellow members to maintain physical and mental health and wellness.

Our clubs are also a place to relax and socialise and we encourage the sense of community and belonging that being part of a club can generate. Whether that’s with some quiet time in our serene spa facilities, getting to know new people by regularly attending a group exercise class, chatting to fellow members in the spa, or using our Clubrooms to meet as a group for coffee, at David Lloyd Clubs, we’re much more than just a gym.

The Group’s commitment to Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) principles underpin the entire business strategy, with significant steps taken to ensure market leadership in this area.

Our history

David Lloyd Leisure was founded in 1982 by former professional tennis player David Lloyd, who sought to create high-quality fitness destinations suitable for the whole family. He recognised that the UK had very few indoor sport and leisure facilities, so created a pioneering concept of combining fitness and tennis in a family-friendly environment.

The very first David Lloyd Club to open its doors was David Lloyd Heston – a club which is still open and operating today. By 1995 there were 18 clubs in the UK, at which point the business was bought by British leisure giant Whitbread. David Lloyd Leisure was then purchased by private equity firm TDR in 2013, and since then our total number of clubs has increased from 90 to 130 through a combination of acquisition and new builds.
