Steve's gym prides itself on providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, accessible to all ages and abilities.


Steve's gym was originally founded in Pewsley, Wiltshire by Steve Murray in 1983. The gym then moved to Torquay in 1989 and eventually ended up here in Newton Abbot in 1991.

Steve's gym is proud to have some of its original members from Torquay still training here today, including Fred Harvey who is in his eighties. Since then the gym has been owned by Michael Bailey and is currently owned by Rick and Laura Lezemore.

Steve's Gym has stood the test of time because of its friendly atmosphere and the experience of its staff and members.
