The Gym

Whether you’re at the start of your fitness journey, training for a competition, or somewhere in between, your biggest challenge is going to be choosing from all the pieces of equipment! Our state-of-the-art gym is packed with 100+ pieces of the latest Matrix functional, strength, resistance and cardio equipment including treadmills, bikes, ascent trainers, ski erg, Olympic lifting bars, weights and platforms, tank resistance sled and much, much more! We also have some exciting new kit such as the revolutionary Go Series which provides the perfect starting point for those looking to dip their toes into the world of strength and circuit training. With minimal adjustments, low starting weights and smaller progressions, anyone can quite simply sit and go!

We’ll also be offering gym-based group training sessions which will provide engaging and dynamic workouts using our extensive range of new equipment. These sessions will give you the best of both worlds; by having lower numbers in the group, the instructor will be able to focus on individual guidance and motivation, plus you get the added benefit of training with others in a group environment. Win-win!

And don’t worry if you’ve never been in a gym before, a warm welcome is guaranteed, and our expert team will be on hand to show you the ropes and answer any questions you have.

Our three new dedicated fitness studios will offer more variety of classes, more often, with both instructor-led and virtual classes. The Fitness Studio is all about high energy, big impact classes such as Circuits and Les Mills BodyPump, BodyAttack and BodyCombat, whilst the serene Mind and Body, which overlooks the beautiful North Inch, will offer mind-body workouts such as Yoga, Pilates and Les Mills BodyBalance. Cycle enthusiasts will love our new Cycle Studio, a dedicated cycle class studio with more bikes than ever before.

We have some exciting new virtual classes too, including Earth + Sky; a collection of specially curated Yoga, Pilates and Barre classes that are suitable for all abilities. With cinematic style productions filmed in incredible locations and specially commissioned music, these immersive classes will provide a virtual experience like no other.

Sports Hall

In addition to our fantastic new facilities, Bell's Sports Centre will continue to be the home of sport in Perth. Our 17 sports courts in the main arena are available to book for both clubs and casual users including football, hockey, volleyball, badminton, netball, kids gymnastics and more. So now you can drop the kids in for a game of badminton while you have an hour in the gym, then book in for a game of squash and finish with a tranquil hour of me-time yoga. The choices are limitless…

All Ability Bikes

Come along to Bell’s Sports Centre on Saturday 9th July between 10:00 and 13:00 and take a free short test ride around the North Inch on one of our All Ability Bikes. No need to book, just turn up!
Our fleet of adapted bikes are great fun for adults with additional support needs, visual impairment or those who have mobility and balance problems.

Update - 27th January 2022

As we hit another major milestone in the Bell’s Sports Centre Development, we are excited to bring you details of how the project is progressing.

We are delighted to be announcing that the £750K project at Bell’s Sports Centre is now one step closer to completion with the appointment of the major contractors, including Perth based company, One Call, who will complete the building works necessary to get the new facilities in place.

Alongside One Call, we have appointed Taylor & Fraser for the electrical and ventilation improvements required of the development.   

Finally, equipment will come from Matrix, a global fitness brand dedicated to providing forward-thinking solutions for gyms and leisure centres.

In making these appointments the project will now start to gather momentum towards the planned opening date of July 9th.

Modern Integrated Sport, Fitness, Health and Wellbeing Facilities

The last 18 months have been incredibly difficult for everyone, and like most organisations we continue to manage significant financial challenges from the impact of COVID-19. This investment in Bell’s Sports Centre is a positive response to these challenges and will

focus on levelling up our oldest and most iconic facility. In improving and expanding our offer our aim is to bring the people of Perth a modern, up-to-date sports and fitness centre that provides fantastic facilities for all our customers, under one roof. 

Just think, you can drop the kids in for a game of badminton while you have an hour in the gym, book in for a game of squash and finish with a 20-minute circuit in the strength and conditioning zone, or enjoy a tranquil hour of me-time yoga followed by a football session with friends.

And with the stunning North Inch on our doorstep, you could also enjoy a safe cycle ride or run around the inch before your workout.

The choices are limitless...

Sports Hall remains open at Bell’s Sports Centre

Its right there in the name and we would like to reassure everyone that Bell’s Sports Centre will continue to be the home of sport in Perth, playing host to local clubs, national and international events, groups of friends, families and customers from 18 months to 81+ years!

The following dedicated sports facilities will continue to be available, building on our 55 year legacy of providing opportunities for everyone to engage and enjoy all types of sporting activity:

  • 17 sports courts in the main arena available to book for both clubs and casual users including football, hockey, volleyball, badminton, netball, kids gymnastics and more.
  • A Gransprung floor, an elastic, sprung sports floor that is certified as impact energy absorbing. This energy absorbing feature helps athletes perform to their best and is perfect for every type of activity from recreational to performance level.
  • Flexible space for events of all kinds including local, national and international sporting events but also family fun activities. The sports arena also includes the capacity to provide up to 1000 spectator seating.

All delivered within the unique, domed main arena which has been an iconic feature of the Perth City skyline since the mid-1960s.

The combination of these attributes will ensure that Bell’s Sports Centre remains a venue of sporting significance moving forward, as it has in the past over the last 5 decades.

And finally, not forgetting, the three glass backed squash courts which have just benefitted from investment in new flooring and ready for action after the challenges of the last couple of years.

The new and improved fitness offer across Bell’s Sports Centre will not only deliver an outstanding fitness 100 station gym but will also see the wider building come into play, with three dedicated fitness studios offering more choice, more often in both instructor-led and virtual classes.

The new facilities will also open up additional opportunities for small group and personal training and allow us to upskill our already fantastic team, providing you with even more qualified fitness instructors to aid and assist you on your fitness journey.

  • Fitness Studio 1 – Focused on high energy, big impact classes such as Circuits, Les Mills BodyPump, BodyAttack and Core.
