About Us

Activeness™. It's wired into our DNA.
Is it in yours?

From a one club start up in 1999, through to a flourishing business of 43 UK clubs, Virgin Active is one of the fastest growing businesses within the Virgin Group. We also have over 3,500 people working for us nationwide, each of whom share our values of fun, challenging the norm, innovation, excellent customer service and value for money. Indeed, these are the essential ingredients that have made us, and continue to make us, and our people tick. In a word, it's what we call Activeness™.

Our purpose, both as a business and as individuals is to enrich people's lives through Activeness™. It's wired into our DNA. It's why we get up in the morning. Activeness™ is ten different ideas, each one saying something really important about who we are and what we do.

Put simply, at Virgin Active, we love being active. We're not uptight or overly serious about it though. Equally, at the other end of the scale, we're not wacky or silly either. We just believe that there's nothing quite like being part of something. That's the kind of club we are.
