York Gym and Health Club

Welcome to Emperors Gym & Health Club

It’s time to start your fitness journey.

Our doors have reopened, and we’re excited to welcome you back!

Following on from the latest Government announcement, we are really pleased to announce that our fitness facilities are now open.

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?

Don’t worry about your gym membership. We will automatically adjust your monthly direct debit payments as you won’t be charged while we are closed. If you pay annually, we’ll simply add the appropriate number of extra months onto the end of your membership period.

You can follow us on social media for all our latest news.
