I can't recommend @andyking (AK Health & Fitness)'s Folkestone Boot Camps highly enough. Having been stuck behind a desk for years without putting time aside to exercise, I knew just signing up to a gym wasn't going to work for me. I wanted something more structured with the added value of advice and motivation. I stumbled across Folkestone Boot Camps online and the reviews and Facebook videos gave an insight into what to expect, but it's been an even better experience than I imagined. Thanks to Andy's boot camp sessions, his nutrition advice and healthy eating plans, app-based motivational support and the great commaradarie of the sessions - I'm already seeing the benefits. I've broken bad eating habits and feel stronger and healthier than I have in years. I can't wait to see what the next few months bring. The sessions vary day by day from circuits to beach training, core strength work and even some boxing. Andy pushes all of us to the right point to get the best out of it that we can. I've never enjoyed getting fit before, but I am now, and actually look forward to my morning sessions - so much so that I've moved up from 3 to 5 days a week! If anyone's worrying about whether it's right for them or not, just give it a go - we're a really friendly lot!

Great gym but could be a lot better if repairs were made quicker
Great gym, a bit pricy but you get what you pay for. The gym equipment is top notch and it's all kept clean. Early evenings get really busy in both the gym and the pool but other than that it's a great place to work out. One of the main benefits is that the gym attendees tend to be older and less chavy that some of the other gyms in the area because of the price. The downstairs swimming pool and sauna is great for relaxing however the pool isn't really big enough for more than one or two people to do lengths at the same time since they'll be people on the other side chilling. The sauna and steam room are great however they're often out of order. And there's sometimes an awful smell in the steam room. The cafe serves small snacks and drinks.

Nouvolution is an amazing place. Great people, amazing instructors who take a real interest in each person and use this to support them through their journey of learning new skills. I started aerial hoop not knowing anyone. I have now made some great friends after being new to the area. I am scared of heights and have no co-ordination and this was totally respected and with a little encouragement I'm now far more confident with heights and I know my left and right without having to think about it! They add fun and interesting workshops. There's plenty of parking. I couldn't recommend them enough.
I used this a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Sadly I had to give up pole due to having another baby but I would recommend it to anyone! Great and nice staff a lot of fun and a great way to get fit. Recently they have added a children's class and my daughter is now attending and loves it! Great place lovely staff and great fun.
