The original Leith Victoria Baths were opened in 1899 by Provost John Bennet, and we’re proud to say that they’re still keeping the local community active today! There’s something for everyone at Leith Victoria, whether you love to log lengths in our Victorian pool or lift weights in our high-spec gym. 

The centre is easily accessible by public transport, car and even by bike, so you can warm up on your way here! We’re also proud to run a successful swim coaching programme. Read more about this here.

Join us for an action-packed summer filled with sports, fun and learning!

We have a wide programme of full and short day camps / coaching lessons running across Edinburgh. Our summer coaching lessons are perfect for trying out something new before signing up to our main coaching programme in August.

Top of the range cardio equipment

The Leith Victoria gym is the first in Scotland to be kitted out with Life Fitness' brand new high spec cardio equipment with 24" HD consoles. The machines have access to apps such as Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, YouTube, Spotify and Freeview TV to make those cardio sessions a whole lot better.

The cardio machines are also integrated with On Demand coach-led workouts.

New strength equipment throughout the gym

Our gym has been finished with new equipment throughout, including resistance machines, pulleys, racks, barbells, dumbbells and plates. We've added an additional half rack, a new glute drive, and made space for extra benches.

Watch the video to take a sneak peak at the new gym.

As part of our gym refurbishment, we've added a new Boditrax machine. Boditrax is a sophisticated body composition scanner that can help you understand your body, set fitness goals, and track your progress.

Located on the gym floor outside Studio 1, it's free to all fitness class and gym customers.

Watch the video to find out how Boditrax works and how it can help you!
