I joined the senior group in February and am already seeing and feeling a difference. We are a small group so it's almost like having a personal trainer. I have joined many gyms but have never stuck with them as I have always felt unwelcome. Body development is so different! Karen is a fabulous instructor and encourages us to work really hard. I'm so glad I made the effort! More...

Great gym, especially for people who want to get in shape for martial arts and lose weight. Very knowledgeable coaches as well!

Fantastic gym, certainly the best in Bath in terms of quality of instruction, equipment and convenience with the wide range of classes at all hours of the day. Tom and Karen keep things fun and interesting and there's something for everyone. Great music too! More...

I love the variety of classes, the early morning classes are ideal for me. I’m learning to better my form at each class. The environment is friendly and fun and I’ve been made to feel very welcome :) My only regret is not joining Body Development years ago! More...

This is the friendliest gym I have ever been to. There is a massive variety of classes to choose from, the format is updated regularly so that you never get bored of doing the same workout for too long. The class sizes are small and so feel like a PT session. The coaches are really encouraging and knowledgeable. It’s a great gym for people wanting to train at any level. More...

Every class leaves me feeling energised, uplifted and conditioned. Tom & Karen are sooo warm, friendly and have Einstein equivalent fitness smarts. Prepare to be inspired!

Been a member of several gyms in Bath over the years and only wish I found Body Development sooner! I've been training here now since January and have seen more results in the last 6/7 months than i have in the last 10 years training solo. Exceptional coaching by the lovely Karen and Tom. I always get to train with a great bunch of like minded people in the short, sharp and exciting classes. I absolutely love it....#committed More...

The Coaches, variety and frequency of classes and members make Body Development one of the best places to train in the south west. Their knowledge, experience and support is second to none. More...

An excellent gym with very friendly members who make it fun. The coaching at BD is second to none in my humble opinion. Classes are well organised and continually varied so that boredom of doing the same time after time doesn't happen. Not only do you get an excellent workout time after time, you also are taught excellent technique in every class keeping the old grey matter tuned as well. Can't recommend this gym highly enough.

If you are looking for well designed training programmes then look no further. Run by trainers who train trainers. Give it a go, you won't regret it.

Great gym! Expert coaching. Wide range of classes. Small groups. I have been a member for 4+ years and love it. You must try it out!

Fantastic facility with specialist equipment, not seen in any other gyms, which are geared towards targeting specific muscle groups and therefore achieving incredible results. The level of knowledge to gain those results from the sessions at BD are second to none. The attention to detail about how to move and the process behind doing exactly which exercises and at what tempo, the reps and sets is what set it apart. Moreover, it’s just damn fun with a great group of people! More...

A fantastic gym with exceptional class & training offerings to meet all needs. I've been attending this gym for about a year and a half now and I couldn't be happier with my choice. All coaches are extremely knowledgable, friendly, approachable and accommodating. It really is a community gym with group sessions helping new members join in easily. Advice is provided frequently and can be targeted for personal needs. With the right focused and committed mindset, I believe it'll provide all the needs to meet and exceed my goals and is definitely somewhere I see myself attending long term. More...

I'm a PT, and choose to train with Body Development for the fantastic coaching, the innovative programming and the results I get. The sense of community at the gym is second to none and I can't recommend it highly enough. Tom and Karen REALLY know their stuff and are more than generous sharing their knowledge. I learn a lot every session I attend. More...

It has been a month since I started at Body Development and I can feel a difference already and I am delighted!One of the best things is that changing my lifestyle to fit in going to the gym has not been as hard as I thought (the hard part was starting!) and by scheduling exercise into my week I have more energy, am sleeping better and feel more positive.I had a body scan during my first week which is a really comprehensive report on my body composition and have had a couple since, which show that fat loss is dropping and muscle mass is increasing, so it is going in the right direction, slowly but steadily. Both Karen and Tom have helped me to understand the report and made recommendations based on the results.The nutrition assessment and plan has been so helpful, and just incorporating some basic changes into my eating habits has helped.I have really enjoyed the Full Body Weight classes, and although they are early (6.30am!) they are over by 7.15am and I am home, showered and ready to start my day by 8am. I did try the FIT class – that was fun too!The classes are small, focused and friendly, and I may not be the fittest and it is early days, but I have been made to feel so welcome by the staff and the other members and I look forward to going. It is also really easy to book the classes online (and once booked I feel more committed to going!) and love getting the FB updates from BD with nutrition and exercise tips and the interaction with the other members.So one month in and I feel good - thank you!(And if you fancy trying out Body Development to see how this works for you, then your first class is free and you get your first month half price - just ask Karen for more info!)

I've been training here for almost 4 years now, and I safely say that I have never encountered anywhere quite as skilled or as competent than BD Bath. I've trained in a lot of other gyms with many different personal trainers and they just lack what the BAD team have. If I could rate 6 stars, I'd give them 7. More...

Definitely recommend the AOM Mentorship for any Personal Trainers looking to up their game. I've been to quite a few mentorships there and always come away with practical info that can be immediately implemented and really enjoy all of the workouts, education etc that is involved in the mentorship weekends!!

Before going to Body Development I found the thought of lifting weights intimidating and working out had become a chore. With the help of every member of their team I have seen huge improvements in many different aspects of my fitness. The trainers are so supportive, knowledgable and complete professionals. The workouts are fun, always challenging and varied with perfection for form at every stage. This gym is an fantastic place to train, full of positive vibes and awesome people! More...

I was lucky enough to spend a couple of hours with Tom and Alex last week. They showed me round the gym and explained how their coaching worked and shared a few gems of knowledge. They are clearly so knowledgeable and provide an amazing service to their clients. I hope to be able to visit again soon and hopefully join one of their courses to benefit further from their experience. Many thanks again Choc More...

At 64 years young I love this gym,all the trainers are highly trained very friendly and positive They are fully hands on and explain and demonstrate all the workouts. The gym has a very friendly atmosphere and you won't feel intimidated in any way. The only down side is that I never found this gym sooner.come along and give it a go you won't be disappointed,programs to suite all abilities and ages More...

Without BD I wouldn't be the trainer I am today. From making life long friends/colleagues to learning and developing coaching skills I can't recommend Tom and the team enough to new and experienced alike.
