History & Ethos

In 2014, Sol Gilbert and Alan McGuiness partnered up and together they created the first Underground Gym in Brighton. Since then, UG has gone from strength to strength, adding two further locations in Newhaven and Tunbridge Wells. We pride ourselves on a community where you can get fit while making friends at the same time. In 2019, we won ‘Best Independent Gym on the South Coast’ - and even though we've come this far, we want to get even better!
