I’m so glad I found this place. It’s rescued me from cardio world. Never in a million years did I think a gym could give me so much enjoyment, energy and enthusiasm to train. The coaches are upbeat and always friendly and encouraging , they totally know their stuff and back it up with the most vigilant efforts to ensure everybody at each each session are using excellent form. That even included a large circuits class . It’s a friendly non judgemental environment where anybody will feel comfortable. I’m loving this journey and long may it continue ! More...

I have been to a few gyms around the Portsmouth and waterlooville area. This one is by far the best I have been too. Friendly atmosphere. every member is on a different journey under the same roof giving eachother support. Great coaches that help you reach your goals and push you to your limits. I only joined 6 month's ago and have come such a long way. Here's to another year of gains at sc vital fitness More...

I have been going to SC Vital Fitness for about 10 months now. I have lost 10kg of body fat in that time and am much fitter than when I started. This gym is very welcoming and friendly, it doesn’t matter what age or shape you are. You are always made to feel very welcome by the coaches and other clients. My mobility and strength has improved under the professional guidance and support of the coaches. I thoroughly enjoy each session and I cannot recommend this gym highly enough. More...

The best gym! Really supportive, fun environment to train in. It doesn’t matter whether you’re super fit or super unfit, the excellent coaches will cater for everyone in small group personal training sessions. Injury rehabilitation is also taken really seriously to get you pain-free and fit again. More...

The environment created by all the coaches is unique & special. Yes, the training & coaching is excellent and they are always encouraging you to strive for more which is backed up with so much advice & support via social media. But it's the camaraderie and smiles on faces that can't be replicated, in my opinion, anywhere else. More...

Sc vital fitness gave me the ability to understand nutrition in a basic and effective way ( no super shake or Christiano Ronaldo super pills) My aim was to add weight and in 7 months i gained 5.6kg of muscle and dropped body fat down to 10.9% . The best thing about being a member at SC is that the coaches adapt everything to your ability. They know when to push you and know how far they can push you without you breaking away from correct form.i recommend SC to anybody because it isn’t just a gym it’s a lifestyle change More...

This is first class facility with knowledgeable & friendly coaches who listen to your goals and guide you in a down to earth and honest way to achieving them. this has been the most welcoming gym I’ve encountered with an ethos that permeates in both the members and the coaches. The coaches are so supportive and they know when to push and when to regress movements. This is my first time using small group training and they are quick to ensure that the movement is suitable for the client and will immediately adjust it. Their guidance has enabled me to attain goals I thought weren’t possible and how to aim higher. Yes its work hard but it’s always fun More...

Well I never thought at nearly 58 that I would be joining a gym!! Tried loads in the past that lasted probably no more than 6 months But what can I say! I absolutely love everything about SC vital Fitness!! Everything from the PT’s to the clients to the atmosphere to the motivation from everyone concerned is AMAZING!!!!! I may often think “shall I give it a miss today” but I make myself go, and after, l come home buzzing and with more energy than I would of had if I had laid in bed an extra hour!!! Would recommend to anyone off any age More...

If you're serious about getting strong and feeling better the Sean is serious about you! If you want a 'no nonsense', excellent quality physical training focus with a deep set of moral values, SC Vital fitness is for you.
You will not be disappointed! You will find something in you that you didn't know previously existed! You will realise your potential, and that has an effect far beyond the gym!

I've just completed the ultim8 course and I've got to say it was brilliant, the coaches are great they encourage and support you every step, at the end of my 8 weeks I was extremely happy with my results, this place, the members/coaches and my results are the reason why I've decided to stay and continue with my fitness journey. ��

It's hard to put in a written review how awesome this place is! I've spent years and years searching for the magic secret to losing weight, trying anything and everything on the market to get me there... Absolutely nothing worked long term, it was all too restrictive, too time consuming or just bloody dull. I joined up to SC Vital Fitness in yet another in a long line of attempts... And I've finally found the secret... Except it's not magic and it's not difficult or dull. This place and its' incredible coaches, with their dedication, encouragement and honesty have completely changed me. Mostly my mindset. I feel strong, more confident, I sleep better, I'm less tired in the day time and above all, I'm more accountable. My only regret is that I didn't find this place sooner. Within a week of starting the Ultim8 I knew I was going to keep it up.... That has never happened to me before!! It's a big supportive family and I'm so happy to be a new family member!! Thank you Sean and your team for being bloody awesome!!!! More...

looks an amazing facility, where everyone looks happy and loves being there. Fair play to them too, as they are always investing in top of the range equipment, think it was only last year it was revamped and looks like its been done again, pity i dint live closer, keep up great work, love seeing the facility grow and grow

If you try this gym you’ll never Look back. The coaches make every session fun ,safe and push you to be the best you can be. I’ve not only felt results physically but mentally (I feel 100% better after previously suffering with depression) . Nutrition is also a priority here ( no fad diets) and regular inbody scans help massively in keeping focused and balanced. “My zone” monitors the progress and you can see your personal performance on a screen throughout the session as well as keep a record on an app on your phone. Doesn’t matter what age or fitness level you are you’ll always leave a session feeling invigorated . I can honestly say I’ve never been to a gym where coaches are so talented , warm and humorous. Also team members will are welcoming and supporting . What else can you ask for More...

Hi guys just a short note to say thank you for my first session back after three months. I was thinking about how wrecked I was but how much I loved it and how great I feel now. So here’s my conclusion, despite running, cycling and going to the gym a little bit I wasn’t able to compete with the Intensity and structure as well as motivation that this gym family brings, that’s the value add of SC Viral Fitness and what value it is, I could see just from my first session back how much I’ve lost being away but the atmosphere and the family feeling in the gym leave me knowing that I’ll get it all back and more, that’s why this is the best gym in the south and why I commend it highly to everyone. Thanks guys. More...

The knowledge, professionalism and expertise of the coaching team far outweighs anything I've experienced at any other gym. The advice on fitness, lifestyle and nutrition I've received has been fantastic while the coaches also encourage each and every member to set and achieve their own goals. On top of that the environment they have created at SC VItal makes the facility an enjoyable place to train where not just the coaches, but also the members, support and encourage each other too.

The only competition you have is with yourself and they will help you challenge yourself to achieve goals you never even imagined.

Best gym ever. Been there almost since it opened. Sean and his team know exactly what they are on about and create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. This isn't a gym that you ever feel like you don't belong, it really is design for everyone you just need to want it.
Early morning circuits are a great start to the day.

Best gym in Hampshire!! I have been going to SC VItal Fitness since October 2013 and really believe it's the best facility around. I got fed up of 'Globo' gyms and really wanted to challenge myself and SC Vital Fitness is like a breath of fresh air. The knowledge of Sean and his coaching team is first class, you receive expert advice and the equipment is brilliant, .it's also friendlier than any other gym I've been to, there is a real sense of community and I would 100% recommend SC Vital Fitness to anyone who his serious about getting fit!

Fantastic facility with even better coaches and people!!!

I have been attending SCVF for about 6 months now and am now in the best shape I have been - this is all down to the excellent advice and program I have been on. The approach of Sean and Dan is refreshing and they take the time to understand your individual needs and goals and give you a bespoke training and nutrition program that allows you to achieve what you have set sights on.

At SCVF you truly can achieve what your mind believes!!!!

We are best known for calling out the BS in the fitness industry, that has kept many a trainer stuck in the old school, no results mentality. Which has put us on a personal mission to change the way the fitness industry trains its clients with a non-BS approach that has proven track record - This is why we love what we do.

At the age of 29 I was a pissed off Royal Navy PTI, a single dad of 1, who was trying to make things work, I was bloated, depressed, drank too much and just wanted to leave the RN…. But I stayed and decided to get out of a rut and use the last few years of my career from the age of 31 to make something of myself…i looked at the best way to get out of this rut and used this experience to open a gym and help people just like me,

Making sure and being confident that you have chosen the right gym and service for you is paramount to reaching your goals.

At SCVF everyone starts the first step of their journey by attending our 30 Day Trial, as this will give you a chance to see how we achieve our results, whilst also ensuring that you build a great foundation for future success.
