Our Exclusive Membership

As you may already be aware, we have recently changed up the way we do things here at Underground Gym! For the first time in its 4 year history we have made the gym an exclusive members club. That’s right, we have now capped off our membership numbers and will be working on a one out, one in policy.

We are using a waiting list system for those wanting to join when there are no spaces and those on the list will be notified as places become available.


We want everyone to have the best experience possible!

Over the past few years we have built a growing reputation in Brighton & Hove, for the great facilities we offer and the atmosphere we work so hard to create and maintain, the staff we hire and the energy we get from our awesome members. So to best preserve this, we felt it was time for a change. We love the buzz on the floor but we don’t want memberships getting out of hand - with queues forming for machines at the peak times or people not getting the most from their sessions with not enough room to move and train properly.

Each month there are always a certain amount of leavers, new memberships will be open until these spaces are filled at which point any potential new members will be added to a waiting list and will be first in line for the following month’s available slots. If there are not enough slots available they will stay on the list until the following month when membership opens up again.

One of our best sources for new members has always been word of mouth - from our members, ex-members and short term visitors bringing in referrals - so don’t forget that for every new member you refer you will gain a discount on your membership each month!

We are also including dual site access to all Underground Gym Brighton members. This means that you can use the Newhaven gym whenever you want as part of your membership at UG1. So if you fancy a workout in a different space, or if you are a class member and want to do spin, run club, some more combat classes or try out our new pilates or yoga classes - you can.

To help you avoid missing out, we also offer the option to freeze your membership if you are unable to use the gym for a few months at a time.

We would always recommend this over cancellation to avoid repaying the sign up fees… but now, there is additionally the possibility that in giving up your membership there may not be space when you may want to return. We can put your membership on hold for up to 6 months at a time and we’ll reduce your monthly membership cost down to £8 per month for the duration
rather than your usual rate.

Any questions? Never hesitate to ask, and we always appreciate feedback!
