The clue is in the name. Active4Less is a small chain of gyms whose mission is to help you to get fit without spending a fortune. Established in 2002, Active4Less Hove is the best place in Portslade to workout for under £5, with a great range of equipment. Approachable and enthusiastic staff help to make this “no frills” gym a popular choice. The gym is noted for its friendly and non-intimidating feel and warm welcome.

The gym provides facilities for boxing, stretch and TRX suspension training. There are free weights and a Powerplate, as well as a mat area for a post-workout cooldown. The resistance equipment is complemented by a good choice of cardio equipment such as treadmills, steppers and rowers.

The gym has showers, changing rooms and lockers, with padlocks available for purchase. Towel hire is also available. The changing areas and showers are fresh and clean, and the workout equipment is also regularly refurbished.

Customers of this gym especially like the good daytime availability of machines and the good standards of cleanliness. Personal trainers operate from this gym (extra charge) enabling you to fine-tune your workout to reach your particular fitness goals.

As well as the gym, Active4Less Hove runs more than 100 group exercise classes each week at their Blatchington Road premises. Classes on offer include Zumba, Pilates and spinning. Please note that extra charges apply for these classes.

Staff very helpful and willing to assist with training techniques. Sauna not very warm today and showers were a bit in need of a wipe down. Overall still great gym.
