Kickstart your health, fitness and wellbeing journey with Activ8!

Activ8’s largest fitness club is located within Billingham Forum leisure centre and is conveniently located in the heart of the Billingham town centre. The Forum, as it is better known, was completely redeveloped in 2011 following an £18M investment that transformed the facility into a state-of-the-art multi-use leisure complex. The gym has since undergone a considerable expansion to create a dedicated strength and functional training area as well as a flexibility and stretch area, a variety of light and spacious fitness studios to support a bursting fitness class programme and an extensive range of cardio stations. In November 2018 the gym underwent further renovations and exciting changes. Activ8 have brought more cardio and strength equipment to the main gym as well as expanding the space in Billingham Forum to create an additional ESCAPE functional training area. The space includes the entire SKILL line comprising of SKILLMILL, SKILLRUN, SKILLROW and SKILLBIKE, and complemented with the TEAMBEATS heart-rate training concept that delivers a fun and engaging workout by analysing performance metrics such as heart rate, to optimise work and rest periods.

The modern and welcoming gym is home to industry leading Technogym equipment and benefits from innovations such as the OMNIA™ functional training rig and Kinesis® station, both providing fun and engaging workout opportunities for groups or individuals. The dedicated strength area includes Technogym plate-loaded strength equipment, up to 50kg dumbbells, Olympic racks and cable jungles to achieve your goals.

Billingham Forum is easily accessible by disabled users and is equipped with accessible shower and changing facilities. A lift provides access to the upper floor studios and our friendly health team can create a custom exercise plan to incorporate equipment that can be quickly reconfigured to suit individual needs.
