Marlow’s Award Winning Fitness & Yoga Studio
Fitness Classes, Yoga, Spin, Personal Training, DNA Testing? The choice is yours!
No memberships. No contracts. No joining fees. Just simple PAYG exercise, always.
We are proud to be helping people to exercise in a simple, fun and effective way. Life can be tough & we firmly believe that exercise shouldn’t contribute to that.
Our very own Olympic and Triple World Champion, Zac Purchase MBE, spent 4 years developing the class programs and ethos that we offer you today.
Having been connected with Marlow for many years, Zac and his wife Fliss, knew that after the London 2012 Games, it was time to give something back to this wonderful vibrant town. ‘Zacs’ was born!
Our fitness classes are a maximum of 45 minutes and have no more than 12 people per class, ofter far less, to ensure you get a really high quality, individual service. That’s our Olympic standard & we wouldn’t have it any other way!
With more than 60 classes each week, there’s something for everyone. Stability, Strength, Stamina, Speed & Spin, the choice is yours!
Our yoga programme is always growing. Currently we run Vinyasa, Hatha, Sky (aerial), Ashtanga & our ever popular candlelit versions of these.
PT & Rowing Coaching
We offer PAYG & monthly PT & Rowing Coaching options, working with complete beginners to elite athletes. Just drop us a message at email@example.com, we’ll be happy to help.
Can’t lose weight or unsure why you’re not getting the results you hoped for? Our DNA tests, provided by DNAFit, analyse your bodies natural make up.
Have a question?
Our FAQ section may help! Of course, if you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, feel free to contact us or drop in as you’re passing. We are always happy to help!
Yes please! We always recommend that you book in advance. You are welcome to drop in without booking but if we don’t know you’re coming and no one else has booked on, we cannot guarantee that the class will be going ahead.
Bookings are mainly made online, in person or via our App. If you want to book a class which starts in the next hour, please call us on 01628 290 260 to book.
You can currently book up to 12 weeks in advance! We occasionally tweak our programme so if you’ve booked a long way in advance, we will contact you to tell you of any changes.
We’re really proud of being able to offer such high quality instruction for a competitive price, so are not offering a bulk discount at the moment. We do have loyalty cards though, which give you every 10th class free… just remember to get it stamped each time!
Our website won’t allow any bookings made within 1 hour of a class starting, or if the class is full. Feel free to add yourself to the waiting list or call us on 01628 290 260 if you would like to attend an imminent class & if a space becomes available, we’ll let you know.
Class bookings can be cancelled online up to 12 hours before the class starts. Your cancelled booking will be allocated to your account as a credit, which you can then use to book at any time within the next month for a class of the same type. Unfortunately, as some sessions are now very popular and have a waiting list, classes cancelled within 12 hours cannot be credited. You will know if your class has been successfully cancelled because it will be marked as ‘Booking Cancelled’ in your profile.
We’re so pleased that you would like your child to attend a session! Just drop us a message first of all with their name, email address (if they have one) & DOB and we’ll set up a child account for them. When you log into this account, the 1/2 price child rate will be automatically applied.
All of our classes, both fitness and yoga, have been designed so people of all ages and abilities can get involved. That is what we do. If you are completely new to exercise or have had an illness or injury we tend to recommend Stability as a starting point, this is the most gentle and easy-going.
Much like our fitness classes, all of yoga classes are suitable for all abilities. Just let us know you’re a newbie & we’ll let your instructor know. Each class has a slightly different approach, just click on the class in the booking timetable for further information or call us on 01628 290 260.
Just bring comfy clothing and a smile! If you’ve booked in person or online, then please check in at Reception so we know you’re here. All visitors attending a PT, Dietitian or Sports Massage appointment, or any other session provided by an external party will be asked to sign the Visitors Book.
For fitness classes, we suggest a minimum age of 10 and all exercises are tailored for each client. Every client, including children, must have their own account for health & safety reasons. If you would like to register for a child’s account please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
Yes! The general NHS advice is to not drastically alter the amount of exercise you would normally do when you become pregnant but it’s really important to stay active. Most of our classes are suitable for expectant mummies assuming your Doctor is happy for you to take part and we can tailor every exercise where needed. If you’re nearing or in your 3rd trimester please contact us so we can have a quick chat first.
Exercising when you are injured/ill, or have had a recent injury/surgery, is completely dependant on each individual circumstance. The best thing to do is get in touch, we’ll always be happy to chat & offer suggestions and advice. We see hundreds (literally) of people with various injuries & illnesses, from trapped nerves to those who’ve had major reconstructive surgery, are recovering from significant illness and some who have lifelong illnesses using exercise to keep symptoms at bay. Our staff are extremely experienced & we’ll always advocate taking a break from class if that’s the right thing for you.
Most of our classes are just £10! Yes really. There are a few exceptions…
1st classes are FREE if you call, email or pop in to book
Sky Stretch is £12
Sky Yoga is £15
10th classes are FREE when you collect enough loyalty card stamps
Under 18s are 1/2 price (except for Sky Yoga & Stretch which are discounted)
Yes! We have individual changing / shower rooms, hairdryers & hair straighteners. We also have a towel hire station – small towels are 50p, large are £1.00.
Our staff are not qualified to care for children unfortunately and we don’t have formal childcare facilities on site – a conscious decision as many of our clients like to enjoy a little ‘me time’ away from the family when they’re here. We understand that childcare can be tricky though so if you’re struggling, get in touch, we’re happy to help on a case by case basis if we can. Alternatively, if your little person is over 10, they can join in too!
Not at the moment, mainly because of the layout of our premises & because we use the ‘free time’ you see in our timetable for Personal Training. We are looking into offering free use times in the future, please contact us if this is of interest and we’ll add you to our waiting list.
Absolutely! We have 3 fitness studios; one for classes, one for yoga/pilates and one for spin. If you want more information , please get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.
We believe in a functional training method. This means we only complete exercises that are based on the bodies natural way of moving, nothing is forced. We use kettlebells, weighted slam balls, our own suspension trainers (similar to TRX), resistance bands & Swiss balls. Oh & bikes in Spin, obviously. In Yoga we have mats, blocks & bands if required. All of our equipment is available to buy if you want to carry on at home.
In brief, they’re ace! Our DNA Tests are provided in partnership DNAFit, a market leader in this technology. The test is extremely comprehensive but basically looks at your genetic predispositions to various areas regarding fitness and nutrition. A simple cheek swab is taken, sent to the lab and results are back within 2-3 weeks. You’ll receive a 60 page report, infographic overview all about you, plus 12 week food planner with recipes and weekly shopping lists. Once the results are back we book you in for a consultation with Zac who will explain & advise on the data. There is loads more to add so if you’d like more information please drop us a message.
Nothing! We are a small, family run business and have a huge amount of pride in our growing reputation. There’s nothing more annoying that receiving junk mail and cold calls – we endeavour to treat every one of our clients as an extended member of our family and would never pass your details on. We take your email address upon registration so we can contact you if there is an issue with your booking. You may also receive emails from us occasionally with offers, competitions and promotions that we think you’ll enjoy.
Of course! If we’re being technical about it, we use Stripe to process our online payments and iZettle in house, both of which are PCI-DSS compliant and our entire website is SSL certified. Bet you wish you hadn’t asked now!
Yes, we offer both monthly & PAYG PT, including sessions with Zac. Please contact us with a rough idea of your goals for more information.
For all media enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will be in touch.
You’d be amazed how many people ask this! Yes, Zac really is at the studio almost every day, taking most of the classes. This is his & Fliss’ full time job & you’ll often see their little girl & dogs mooching around from time to time too. So when we say you’re in experienced hands, we mean it!
It’s simple, complete your class and bring your loyalty card to Reception for a stamp. You get a Primal Pantry bar every 5 classes and your 10th class is FREE! Loyalty cards are valid until the date shown and much like a coffee shop, cannot be back dated. If you forget your card we’ll be happy to give you a new one and add them both together when you find your old one if it’s in date.
You can book all of our classes online or via our app. Just click on the class you fancy for more information and to book.

Don’t forget, if you’re new, your 1st class is FREE (except Sky Yoga) when you call us to book!
