This state of the art pod is literally everything that I have been needing in my life and didn’t know! My Fit Pod is an exclusive, private fitness facility with their first location having launched in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire at the start of 2023.
Packed with the finest fitness equipment and technology in a sleek and easily accessible space with ample parking, you can train solo, with a friend or personal trainer in complete privacy; meaning you never have to wait for a machine to become vacant at peak times or freak out about your sweaty screw face and shrieks being witnessed when challenging PB’s!
The booking process is incredibly quick and easy as you simply download their free app, available on apple and android, and pick a slot for your session. Upon arrival, your phone activates the automatic door lock and allows you entry into the training facility for your allotted amount of time. The rest is down to you.
Being a keen gym goer, as well as having my own home gym, I find it motivating to train at different venues for a change of scenery or when working out with friends and am always on the lookout for fresh spaces, which is what led me to My Fit Pod.
My Fit Pod is most definitely the future when it comes to unused gym memberships and invasive stares in overpacked and inadequate gym spaces. Here you can workout solo, with a friend or your own personal trainer – they also have a list of locally recommended PT’s.
They celebrate working out your way by giving you complete control of your environment. The state of the art fitness equipment comes complete with training options to suite everyone in a clean, safe and private facility. This space comes with access to the very best cardio equipment from Peloton with a bike and treadmill packed with features and programmes which can be accessed via your own account.
Music has always been such a key motivating factor in my workouts and their state of the art sound system gives you the freedom to ditch your headphones and feel the beat with every rep.
Their resistance equipment is by Primal Strength which includes a squat rack, olympic bars, cable machine, dumbbells, kettlebells, leg extension, lying leg curl, landmine attachment, plyometric box and other accessories. And after you’ve worked up a sweat there’s a spacious shower and toilet facilities with complimentary comforts so that you can return to your day fresh and revitalised from your workout.
Something that I adore about this fitness pod is the flexibility to visit as and when you want to with their pay as you go options so that you only pay when you train. I dread to think how many gym memberships auto-renew month after month with members hardly stepping foot inside the gym past January, yet they’re still tied into expensive contracts and have lost the vibe to return regularly due to the inconvenience of peak times and busy lifestyles.
Being a single parent, I fit my training around my children’s dance classes, scouts, school times and family activities and as such my diary and availability fluctuates from week to week which can make keeping routines difficult so I really appreciate a flexible workout space that I can access at unconventional hours.
For those who want to train regularly there is a range of subscription bundles which offer the perfect solution to save on visits as you can train solo, with friends or book a personal training session. For around the same cost as a day pass at a packed gym, you can have your own private fitness facility for an hour or train with up to four friends and split the cost.
For fit couples, PT’s, fit friends and families, this is such a perfectly private and non-judgemental space to make fitness your focus and put your health and wellbeing first. With nobody watching you are free to train your way, at your own pace, to your tunes in your own time to suit you. What a game changer for the fitness industry!
