Imperial Health at Work


Imperial’s all-new Pinnacle gym

This week, the Pinnacle gym in the basement of the Cambridge building at St Mary’s hospital reopens. It is now fully refurbished with brand new, top-of-the-range equipment throughout. The gym has also been redecorated and the new flooring and fresh lick of paint give it a look and feel comparable to commercial gym chains, but at a fraction of the price.

The gym includes:

  • a free weights room
  • weights and cardio machines
  • power plates
  • indoor rowers, bikes and treadmills
  • a stretching/bodyweight exercise area

For NHS and Imperial College staff, the monthly cost is £28 for the gym, and an extra £6 will give you unlimited access to the gym and yoga classes. (For members of the public, we charge £39 per month for use of the gym only and £45 for the gym and yoga package). Joining the gym costs £10 for staff members, and £25 for members of the public.

Aside from the monthly packages, you can save money by signing up for the three, six and 12-month membership packages. Personal programmes (£25) and personal training (from £46 and including a full fitness and postural assessment) are also available.

The gym is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for NHS staff members, and is open to the public from Monday to Friday 6.30am to 9pm and at the weekend from 7am to 8pm.
