York Gym and Health Club

Welcome to Emperors Gym & Health Club

It’s time to start your fitness journey.

Re-Opening Update

We are delighted all our fitness facilities are open and safer than ever.

In line with Government guidance, our fitness classes will also not be operating, but from Monday 17th May, all our fitness classes will resume.

It’s a new way of visiting, but as always with the House of Daniel Thwaites, we’re making sure that you’ll be able to work out with confidence. You can be reassured about your visit, with the correct safety measures in place, and the wellbeing of our guests and team as our number one priority. If your visit to the gym includes staying at the hotel overnight or enjoying a meal in our restaurant, you’ll find our complete safety measures in the guide below:

What happens with my gym membership during closure?
