Swimming Pool & Spa facilities

Swimming is one of the most effective (and enjoyable!) ways to exercise your body and improve your fitness. Regular swimming has not only been proven to increase cardiovascular fitness and build muscle, but it will leave you feeling slimmer, stronger, more flexible, and less stressed.

Here at David Lloyd Clubs we offer a wide range of pool facilities and services, whether you're a beginner or a high level swimmer. With both indoor and outdoor pools at the majority of our clubs, you can look forward to swimming all year round, regardless of the weather.  

Once you’re out of the pool, head to our well-equipped gyms, or relax in our state-of-the-art spas, complete with sauna, steam room and whirlpools.

Indoor & Outdoor Pools

One of the joys of swimming at David Lloyd Clubs is that we have the perfect pool for every season!

Our heated indoor pools mean that you don’t have to put your training on hold over the winter, whether you’re after a relaxing dip or an energising workout. 

During the warmer months, make the most of the sunny weather with our outdoor pools. Relax and cool down with a quick dip, enjoy an invigorating training session, or sit back and relax on one of our sun loungers.

The majority of our pools are at least 20m in length and with a number of special adult only swim times as well as family swim times, you’ll find a time to enjoy our pools for whatever purpose or activity you like.

Adult swimming lessons & coaching

As an adult, whether you’re a seasoned swimmer looking to perfect your technique, or a total beginner keen to be more comfortable in the water, our expert swim coaching can help you achieve your goals.

Looking for individual attention and a focused programme? One-to-one coaching and adult swimming lessons are the way to go. Keen on feeling part of a community and enjoying the spirit of a swimming group? Join one of our coach-led swimming clubs, where you’ll get the guidance you need while making new friends. And for the serious swimmers, our expert personal trainers can help you with workouts and gym sessions that can complement your swim training.

If you’re keen on trying something fun, new and different in the pool, we offer a number of aqua classes. Fun and energising, these incorporate aerobic exercises while using the water as resistance for an extra push. Some classes make use of various buoyancy aids, while others simply rely on your body and the water.

If it’s quiet time in the water that you’re looking for, our dedicated adult-only swim times could be exactly what you need. Head to the pool early to kickstart your day, or wind down after work with a serene swim session. With poolside spa facilities available too, it’s the ideal way to relax your mind and body.

And if it’s serious training sessions to perfect your stroke you’ve got in mind, you’ll find individual training lanes which will help keep you on the path to progress. Our lanes are designed for swimmers of all abilities, with fast, medium and slow paced lanes to allow everyone to feel comfortable at their own speed.

Spa & Poolside Spa Facilities

After you’ve finished in the pool, why not head to the spa to unwind after your workout and enjoy some much deserved ‘me time'? As a minimum you’ll find a poolside sauna and steam room at the majority of our clubs, where you can escape the world and spend a few hours relaxing and rejuvenating. Soak sore and tired muscles in a warm whirlpool, sweat out stress in a hot sauna, or just relax and breathe on one of our heated beds.

We also have separate, luxury spa facilities at a number of our clubs, including our magnificent Spa Retreats. Perfect for a post-swim relaxation session or simply some quiet time to yourself, our spas are all high-quality and built to provide you with a calming escape from the stresses of everyday life.
