Glasgow Club has welcomed thousands of members since opening its doors in 2000 and offers a range of flexible membership options that are great value for money.

Clyde 1 DJ and host, George Bowie, said: “It’s great to be back to help Glasgow Club celebrate 20 years – though it feels like only yesterday I supported the launch and began my own membership at Kelvin Hall.  

“There’s no better feeling than getting into the gym, tuning in to your favourite music and getting the heart rate pumping.

"As listeners to my Clyde 1 show will know, I love a mix of music and it’s definitely what gets me through my own workouts.

“The gym at Kelvin Hall is perfect for me and my fitness routine, well located and kitted out with a stack of modern equipment. Here’s to 20 more years of Glasgow Club workouts!”

Councillor David McDonald, Chair of Glasgow Life and Depute Leader of Glasgow City Council, said of the anniversary:  “Glasgow Club has transformed the way people use health and fitness facilities in the city.

“Founded on the principle of improving people’s lifetime health from childhood to adulthood and, as the only not-for-profit health club in the city, every penny Glasgow Club makes is re-invested in services and facilities for the benefit of its members.

“Glasgow Club has grown its membership through a range of affordable memberships based on ability to pay and reflects the needs of the city in all its diversity. It has become part of the fabric of the city over the past two decades and I have no doubt will continue to make a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing over the next 20 years."
