Manchester City Guide

Manchester, England prides itself on a rich and diverse history, iconic music scene and world-class football clubs. It’s the city where the Industrial Revolution came to be, where the atom was first split and where Rolls met Royce. The fitness scene? Also top-notch!

Manchester is home to a fantastic variety of studios ranging from spin to strength training and beyond. So between the trips to Levenshulme Market for a bite and browsing shops in the Northern Quarter, take some time to explore these featured studios and more with ClassPass.

“This is Manchester, we do things differently here.” – Tony Wilson

1. V1BE

V1BE brings an enticing and quirky workout experience to Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The studio, located on Dale Street, offers state-of-the-art equipment and a unique training space to get a superior full-body workout. Classes include elements of weight training, cardio, core and boxing with personal fitness trackers and Live DJs to keep you motivated. As their website says, “V1BE classes are not fitness Bushtucker Trials, but they will challenge you, make no mistake.”

2. LuvCycle

Time to party! Luvcycle brings a vibrant, no-pressure workout to the Radcliffe area. Three things are certain about Luvcycle classes — they’re efficient (45-minutes), effective (unlike some cycling classes, they promise a full-body workout) and most importantly, fun. ‘Bikes and Beats’ is the motto they live by, so the music and workout are always on point.

3. British Military Fitness

If you’re looking for a breath of fresh air, you will get it at BMF — both literally and figuratively. The bootcamp style classes take place in various parks across Manchester! Come rain or shine, classes are on and don’t worry about intimidation because classes are separated into three different fitness levels. The beauty in BMF’s classes is the variety — from the moves to the weather.
