A great gym. I was on holiday in Camber and didn’t want to miss the gym so bought a week pass and wasn’t disappointed. Friendly owner and members, very welcoming and great facilities. If I didn’t live five hours away I’d definitely be joining.

Great gym! I was very nervous about starting the gym as it’s out of my comfort zone. Gav and Kate put my mind at ease and are really good at giving their customers continued support. Very welcoming environment. Would recommend to all.

Staying down in Camber for the weekend, so a one-off visit. Fantastic gym, really well equipped (including hex bar, curl bar, bench press station, squat rack, etc, etc) and has a really great vibe. Regular members were super-friendly and helpful. Super comms with the owner.

I cannot recommend Rye Bay Fitness highly enough and joining has been life changing for me. A great range of equipment and classes, a friendly and helpful atmosphere with both Gavin and Kate offering support, encouragement and advice. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

- Fantastic gym with a friendly atmosphere.- It's always tidy, and its easy to find and use equipment (even during busier periods).- Checking in and out is easy and efficient via the app-Open 24/7- Parking available- Toilets and changing rooms are clean to a high standardAs someone who was just down for the week, it was a nice surprise when Gavin introduced himself and checked how I was doing with everything! Not something you often get at commercial gyms.Definitely will be visiting again when I am next in the area. 🙂

Great local gym. Lovely encouraging people. Owners, who are always around, and regulars are super friendly. A welcome change from bland gym chains. Clean and well maintained with lots of extra kit you wouldn’t get elsewhere.

I cannot speak highly enough about Rye Bay Fitness. I really like how it is open 24/7 so I can go at whatever time suits me. Also I like how there is an upstairs and down stairs - separating the cardio and weights sections. I like how I can go at my own pace with no pressure. Gavin and Kate are always so friendly and encouraging - they are always there if you need help or advice. I have lost a lot of weight in the last year but since joining the gym last July/Aug I have lost over 6 stone, so I would recommend Rye Bay Fitness to everyone!

Rye Bay Fitness is a great gym with a tremendous atmosphere and more than that it's owned by one of the best personal trainers in the area – and I should know I've tried a fair few! Gavin is great at motivating me and knows exactly the buttons to press to get me to do those few extra reps or those extra few steps. I know well that gyms can sometimes be intimidating but Rye Bay Fitness is very far from being that!

I’ve recently joined RBF and I love it! The atmosphere is great, it’s well equipped and everyone is so friendly. I love the fact I can do classes, weights, machines, tyres and battle ropes all in the same space - and even better is that I have complete access whenever I want to train.It’s a great space and I would recommend coming and giving it a try ????

I’d like to thank Gavin for always being on hand to answer any questions I’ve had and for general reassurance.The classes that are organised are also well worth taking part in, something Ive really enjoyed with other likeminded people.Thanks again for everything,Jack A

One of the best gyms I have been a member of. Good range of machines, kettlebells, dumbbells and some bits I have never seen before including some strong man equipment! I have never found it too busy either and can always get a free squat rack.By far the best thing about this gym though is the community. Gav is a lovely owner who goes out of his way to make everyone feel comfortable and Katie runs some brutal HIIT classes if you’re up for the challenge!! Met some great people and of course this gym would not be complete without Nala the gym dog10/10 would recommend 🙂

Awesome local gym and a godsend to be 24 hour! Everything you need is there and also have the freedom to throw your own music on and workout to what you like! Gav is a great bloke and will help you with whatever you need to settle in. 11/10 would recommend and have recommended to everyone!

I really love this gym. It’s got everything you need to focus on a good workout. It’s spacious, well-equipped and I love that I can come whenever I want. In terms of equipment it’s up there with some of the best gyms I’ve been to. Gav is super friendly and he’ll make you feel like a welcome part of the club which is great if you’re a new local like me and don’t know too many people here yet or if you’re just a bit nervous about gyms.

I came here to start my fitness journey, after years of not being able to walk into a gym because I felt so anxious. The great thing about RBF is that its 24/7 and slightly out the way so its never too busy and never too quiet.I started going late at night and as I got more confident and experience I was able to walk in peak times with no anxiety which was a huge achievement for me! Gavin was so supportive, whenever I needed help he would respond immediately and very kindly gave me a spot at times as well.I also live all the way in bexhill and it was well worth the drive and distance, I looked so forward to my gym sessions!Highly recommend this gym!

Loads of space and equipment and really nice, down to earth people who are focused on a good workout. Gavin also really helpful (out of hours) to get set up with the door code. Would definitely recommend as both a long term gym or if you are visiting Rye on a holiday.

This is by far the greatest gym I've ever been to in almost 20 years of training. The 24 hour access is a fantastic convenience that allows me to work out whenever I desire. No more waiting for the gym to open or having to constantly update myself with opening hours for bank holidays etc. This place is always open.The gym itself has all the equipment you could ever need regardless of your training style. My friend who was a professional athlete for 12 years was able to get a one week pass whilst staying with me during the summer. He tells me it's as equipped as any gym he's ever been to anywhere in the world. Overall he was delighted to have access to such a wider range of equipment during his stay in Rye.The members here are friendly and encouraging, and you'll feel welcomed regardless of your ability, shape or size. Fitness is for everyone... And you will truly feel that here.If you decide to join, the first person you'll meet is Gavin, the owner of Rye Bay Fitness. He is warm, freindly, encouraging and knowledgeable and will ensure that you have both success and enjoyment on your fitness journey. So whether you're a beginner or a veteran of the gym, I highly recommend Rye Bay Fitness! I look forward to seeing you.

I was on holiday for a week so I was able to get a week's pass. Have to say they are really helpful and the gym is brilliant. Trained everyday usingthe sled, tyre flipping, sledge hammers, battle ropes circuits and free weights. Shame we haven't got equipment like this back at home..

Well equipped new gym, spotlessly clean. This includes the shower and changing rooms. Gavin who owns the gym makes everyone feel welcome. Members have 24/7 access with key card. Classes available too and I would expect that more is to come.

“Rye Bay Fitness is hands down the best gym I’ve ever been to! Not only is it a great space to train in, but it is so welcoming and relaxed. The people I have met through going to the gym, have all become such great friends and training with them that it feels like one big family! For someone that used to have such huge anxiety about “going to the gym” I have experienced nothing but a welcome atmosphere and lovely people there. I would HIGHLY recommend Gav, and Rye Bay Fitness!”
