If you follow me over on Instagram you might have seen that I’ve been working with MoveGB over the past few weeks and I’ve really been enjoying my membership. I’ve had quite a few messages about how it works and which price plan to go with, so I thought I would put together a blog post to help answer any questions that you might have.
What is MoveGB?
So first of all, you might be wondering what on earth MoveGB is, I know I hadn’t heard of them until very recently.
MoveGB is currently available is 21 towns and cities in the UK and offers a flexible membership that can be cancelled at any time. A MoveGB membership allows you to try a range of different activities and fitness providers in your area. So far I’ve tried two different gyms, yoga, Pilates, swimming, body balance and ballet! There’s such a fantastic range of activities to choose from and something to suit everyone.
It’s great for someone like me who gets bored easily when it comes to exercise. I don’t want to be going to the same gym every day, doing the same thing and seeing the same people. I want to try different things and that way I can stay motivated and enjoy exercise.
I have the MoveGB app on my phone which is really easy to use. You can search for a particular venue or activity or browse through what’s on in your area on a particular day and time. When you’ve decided on an activity you can book in straight through the app. Some venues offer instant booking, some will get back to you once your booking is confirmed. Once you’re booked in, you’ll receive a pass which you show to reception when you arrive at the venue. You’ll also need to check-in via the app, just so they know you attended.
If you wish to cancel a booking you must do so more than 24 hours before the start of the class, otherwise a fee may be charged to you.
There’s 3 different price plans to choose from, depending on what you want to get out of MoveGB. As I mentioned earlier MoveGB is available in lots of cities across the UK and prices do differ, the information below is based on Sheffield.
You can join MoveGB with a discovery pass for just £1 a week! It’s great way to get started with MoveGB and see what it’s all about. For £1 a week you can visit any venue that offers a discovery pass, and once you’ve tried one venue you can discover a different one. If you want to attend the same fitness provider again, you’ll need to upgrade to a full membership.
of your sessions for the month.
A MoveLite membership gives you 1-2 workouts a week. You get 4 revisit passes each month, so you could go back to same venue 4 times if you wanted to, or attend venues that don’t offer a discovery pass.
MoveLite is £3.99 per week (billed every four weeks).
Full MoveGB membership
With a full MoveGB membership you can do 3-4 workouts a week. As well as discovery access you have 12 included sessions each month you can use to attend the same fitness provider, or visit a mixture that don’t offer discovery passes.
A full membership is usually £10.99 per week (billed every 4 weeks) but you can get 20% off until the 1st April in Sheffield – so it’s currently £8.80 per week! Find out more here.
I am thoroughly enjoying MoveGB and fully intend to renew my membership once I’ve finished my work with them. I love the variety, it really helps to keep me interested in exercise which is something I usually struggle with. I think the prices are very reasonable considering the different options that are available to you. I also like the fact that you can cancel at any time which is something most other memberships don’t offer.
