"The best gym in the UK for people who hate the gym" - The Telegraph

This is Primal.

We help people lead happier, healthier lives by making fitness fun, building strong communites and delivering results.

No gym compares to Primal, its sense of community, friendly staff and excellent service is unrivalled! Can't ever imagine changing gyms!

Best gym I've ever been too, if I hadn't moved to another continent I would have stayed here forever! If you want results and not rows of endless treadmill machines - this is the place.
I love this place. The moment you walk through the door you get a warm welcome and a real sense that everyone is there to change their lives - not to judge you, or make you feel like you shouldn’t be there!

Redefining Gym Classes

Primal will redefine what you think about gym classes. You won't find an endless list of branded classes and you won’t find any fads. Instead, Primal offers you engaging and effective class-based training suitable for all levels of fitness and ability. There are four standard class types, each named based on their outcome: Conditioning, Strength, Power and Core.

There are also weekly challenges and a range of club-style classes including boxing, kickboxing, power-lifting, kettlebells and more. All Primal classes are done in small groups so our trainers can provide you with the highest standards of training, ensuring you train effectively and safely no matter your experience level.


Conditioning classes will enhance your cardiovascular fitness and muscular endurance and completely blow away what you think about cardio training. Expect engaging and enjoyable sessions with friendly competition – and all way more effective than a treadmill.


Strength is arguably the single most important facet of overall fitness. Your Primal strength classes will typically include some form of free weight or functional resistance training and classes will target all major muscle groups, making you stronger, leaner and more efficient.


We all need power on a daily basis, from walking up stairs to simply standing up, and if you play sport or enjoy staying active, power becomes critical. Your power classes will focus on acceleration and speed, transforming your body into an efficient force generator.


A commonly misunderstood term, core strength is your body’s ability to stabilise and generate force during movement. Much more than just ‘abs’, core stability involves a range of muscles covering all joints, head to toe. You’ll improve balance, posture, flexibility and overall stability.


All memberships includes unlimited yoga and pilates classes. Both are all-rounders, benefiting include improved flexibility, muscle-strength, posture and blood flow as well as improving mental wellbeing too. Yoga is relaxing, helps you focus and makes you happier!

Best gym in Leeds! Staff are absolutely lovely and always welcoming. I gained 2kg of muscle and lost 3.5kg of fat in 6 weeks just by attending the classes!
A quality gym with a fantastic atmosphere and better staff. If you have a question, concern or just want to chat about something, someone will be on hand to help you out.
Lost a stone, about a meter off my waste and bucket loads of fat. Primal has made getting/keeping fit fun again. Would recommend to anyone bored of exercising to no avail.
