Research has revealed that more than 50 per cent of Fitness First UK members access the website using a mobile device. The new website has been built to adapt to all platforms which allows users to access classes and connect with their club on the go.

Tom Roberts, MD of Tribal Worldwide, London, commented: “The launch of the new website is a fantastic digital complementation to what Fitness First has already done. We are now leading the way into a digital world inside and outside the club to support and motivate members.”
