It's been a long time coming, but Torrington finally gets its first high quality Gym and Fitness Centre, fully appointed with top quality equipment, and staffed with friendly and knowledgeable instructors.


Louise and Paul Banfield will use their extensive knowledge, gained whilst running the highly successful and renowned Pure Pilates Studio in Barnstaple, to create a centre that can offer sound advice along with functional equipment, helping clients of all ages to improve their fitness and general wellbeing, putting the fun back into functional fitness.


The centre will encourage all fitness levels, from nervous and new clients to established athletes. Louise and Paul will also be bringing their specialist therapeutic knowledge to help clients with specific requirements. It will be a family enterprise, as their son Charlie has now qualified as an instructor and will be enthusiastically learning the ropes! You will also see daughter Mollie on reception from time to time.


We look forward very much to welcoming you to our new venture, even if you just want to see the regeneration of the Eric Palmer Community Centre and catch up with our friendly staff.
