  • I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

    Ros, CHF Member

    This gym has something for everyone; approachable, experienced trainers to help you if you're just starting out or if you're a serious gym-goer, and a great range of classes with loads of friendly, fun, supportive members and instructors. It has loads of measures in place to help you keep yourself COVID safe. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

  • I love being back

    Barbra, CHF Member

    I love being back at the gym (after lock-down) this is my second week and I have been able to book in all the classes I have wanted to do, and even though I loved this gym because you didn't have to book, the gym are doing their best to make as many classes available as they can. In my opinion, the best gym in Braintree.

  • Amazing community…

    Michelle, CHF Member

    CHF gym is an amazing community built up of high experienced trainers and the most welcoming of staff. They provide so much support in helping you achieve your fitness goals, whilst also providing the best equipment and fitness classes in the business. Thank you!

  • Best decision I ever made

    Sarah, CHF Member

    I joined CHF in 2016 and this place has changed my life! I had not done any exercise for over 10 years, was overweight, unhappy and lacked self confidence. Since joining this has all changed and it really is down to not only the staff but the amazing members. Everyone is there to help, encourage and motivate you to become the best version of yourself. Joining this gym was one of the best decisions I ever made!!

  • Never thought I’d love the gym

    Claire, CHF Member

    I joined CHF in September 2019 and felt instantly welcomed by the staff and members alike. 6 months in and lock-down hit! CHF provided home workouts and support. Once they were able to, they did classes in the car park and soon as CHF reopened, it felt safe, sanitized and we were all kept informed of the new processes. I LOVE going to the gym and never thought I would say that!! The members are friendly and all of the instructors are amazing. I always walk away feeling energized and happy. There is nothing pretentious about CHF and I can't imagine how depressed I would feel without them. Support a local family business!

  • I Wouldn’t Even Consider Moving

    Mel, CHF Member

    Nearly 3 years ago if you'd have said to me about going to the gym I'd have laughed at you. I decided to make the change when I was at my heaviest. I came to CHF where they didn't judge, they were very friendly and welcoming putting me at ease straight away. Firstly I just used the gym then I decided to try some of the classes and become hooked, giving them all a go. The instructors are all brilliant and welcome you to classes no matter what level of fitness you are, always with a smile on their face. I wouldn't even consider moving to any other gym as everyone makes you feel welcome

  • CHF Changed My Life!

    Mira, Ex CHF Member

    Joining CHF literally changed my life! I had never been at all sporty before, but fitness is now a major part of my life and I'm a lot happier and more confident for it. The instructors are so inspiring and motivational, and the atmosphere is really friendly and welcoming to people of all abilities. I've since had to move away from the area and attend another gym, but CHF is still my favourite and I come back and train with them whenever I can.

  • I Absolutely Love It!

    Jaime, CHF Member

    I never thought I would enjoy going to the gym, but since joining CHF a couple of months ago I absolutely love it. It's the first gym I've ever joined and it will be the last as I wouldn't go anywhere else. The staff are so helpful, friendly and down to earth. It's a great place to be!

  • Staff are always helpful

    Katy, CHF Member

    I have been a long standing member for years and still look forward to my classes! Love the fun banter with the staff and they are always helpful if you want advice on a workout. Definitely recommended.

  • Something to suit everyone

    Carole, CHF Member

    CHF is a very welcoming and friendly gym. It has a great variety of classes and equipment, there's something to suit everyone. The team are all really supportive and encouraging. I'd recommend it to anyone.

  • Made some amazing friends

    Tina, CHF Member

    Absolutely amazing place, fab staff and made some amazing friends.

  • I’m very impressed

    Justine, CHF Member

    Only joined a month ago (August 2020), but I'm very impressed. Great gym and staff are very helpful.

  • Brilliant gym, brilliant staff

    Martin, CHF Member

    CHF is a regular part of my fitness regime, it's also a regular part of my life. I don't have self motivation to exercise alone and because I belong to CHF, I don't have to. During the most difficult times in most of out lives (the pandemic) CHF was there with online videos from staff. They didn't just ride the storm the were there for customers. CHF were the first to put on classes, IN THE CAR PARK, as soon as they were allowed. They spent their lock-down time preparing the gym for our safe return, as this happened as soon as the government gave the go ahead. They have increased the amount of classes to accommodate for the demand because of the guidelines that are in place. Customer satisfaction, from my point of view, could not be higher. Brilliant gym, Brilliant staff, friendly environment and very safe with COVID guidelines. I genuinely could not fault CHF if I tried.

  • Amazing Facility, Amazing Staff

    Janine, CHF Member

    Before joining CHF I had low confidence and self esteem. Not only are the instructors helping me achieve my physical goals, they have also helped to build up my self esteem. Amazing facility, amazing staff and amazing creche...who could ask for anything more?

  • We Have joined many Gyms….None Are Better Than CHF

    Rebecca and Shane, CHF Members

    We have joined many gyms in our life and none better than CHF.. A fantastic range of equipment, an exciting variety of classes taught by highly motivated, enthusiastic instructors all focused on you getting the best out of your workout,every member of staff is friendly and nothing is too much trouble.. Good job CHF

  • Pleased to be a member

    Tim, CHF Member

    Classes I really enjoy, trainers who are experienced, enthusiastic and happy to both guide and train plus a bunch of similar minded people who now regularly add to my fitness motivation. The trainers continued to support and motivate (online) through lock-down and provided on site training as soon as they could. I'm pleased to be a member.

  • I am so happy to be back!

    Tamar, CHF Member

    I absolutely love this gym! Awesome classes, fab gym facilities, great staff and lovely members. It is all fantastic and by far the best gym I have been a member of. I am so happy to be back after lock-down and so impressed with how hard the team have worked to put everything in place so that we are all COVID safe.

  • Love the variety of equipment

    Charley, CHF Member

    I was new to the area when I joined and I didn't know anyone. Everyone was instantly welcoming and I didn't feel awkward once. I love the variety of equipment and classes available, and the atmosphere too. Plus... My daughter LOVES the creche.

  • One big family… The most friendly place I know

    Jason, CHF Member

    I have been a member for 10 years having previously been a member of large multinational gyms. Why so long you ask? CHF do not treat you as an anonymous member, we are all treated as one big family - members, instructors and owners alike. It's the most friendly place I know, constantly evolving and a fab, safe place to train and meet like minded people. No fancy gimmicks, pool or spa, just the space to fulfill your fitness goals in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

  • It’s clear to see they love their job

    Katrina, CHF Member

    Really enjoy attending the classes, the instructors are always enthusiastic, encouraging and patient. It's clear to see they love their job. In fact, all the staff are friendly and helpful. Best gym I've been to in Braintree.

  • Helped me beyond words

    John, CHF Member

    Made some good friends over the years, CHF has helped me beyond words... Great friendly staff.

  • They really do care

    Sian, CHF Member

    I have tried many many gyms and I never felt fully comfortable in them. When I phoned the lady who answered was so polite, friendly and professional that I had to come and try it out. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by all, shown where everything was in the gym and made to feel welcome. All the staff are so friendly and helpful and the members are too. I've had really meaningful discussions with the staff and I feel like they really do care. Best gym ever!
