What is DCHW?

DCHW is your friendly local Leisure Centre, “where everyone knows your naaame”,  home to a gym, spin studio, group exercise studio, and The Lounge cafe.  Our gym has recently been refurbished with the latest Matrix cardio and resistance equipment, and has a dedicated free weights area. 

With over 35 exercise classes a week, from Body Pump to Pilates, and Zumba to Body Combat, no matter what your goal, level of fitness or exercise preference we have plenty to offer you.   You can even take a spin class in our dedicated Spin Studio.  Our qualified gym instructors will give you a full induction and, if desired, assist you with bespoke workout programmes designed to help you reach your fitness goals.

After your workout you can relax in comfort in The Lounge, with a freshly brewed cappuccino and well-earned snack.
