Center Parcs Gym: What You Need to Know

There is a gym at every Center Parcs village in the UK. So, if you depend on your fitness routine, you can maintain it while at Center Parcs.

However, the gym at Center Parcs leaves a lot to be desired. It’s a small, uninspiring room with limited equipment and little atmosphere. Most importantly, there are no free weights at the Center Parcs gym. Instead, the gym is primarily cardiovascular equipment.

For this reason, I prefer to exercise outside the gym when I visit Center Parcs. The cost isn’t worth it when so many fantastic alternatives exist. Running or cycling around the Center Parcs village is a great way to get in some cardio.

Alternatively, consider exercising with some of the best activities at Center Parcs. Rock climbing, badminton, squash and tennis are great options.

That said, if you would still like to visit the gym at Center Parcs, here’s the essential information you need to know.

How Much Does the Gym at Center Parcs Cost?

A five-day gym pass at Center Parcs costs £15. This covers you for one visit to the gym (up to 90 minutes) daily.

This price was correct as of my last visit to Center Parcs (October 2023). Prices for weekend and week long breaks may vary.

How to Book the Gym at Center Parcs

Like all activities at Center Parcs, you must book access to the Center Parcs gym. You can book activities at Center Parcs either online in advance, over the phone or in person.

If you book the gym pass at Center Parcs and decide to cancel or move it to a different time or date, you can do this online, over the phone or in person. There’s no limit on how late you can cancel Center Parcs activities as long as the activity has yet to start.
