Burleigh Springs Leisure & Therapy Centre is part of the 4-star Burleigh Court hotel based on the world renowned Loughborough University campus.

The hotel and leisure centre have been running for over 25 years now, though the leisure club itself had a very humble beginning with the reception being a cupboard under the stairs and the gym being two bedrooms originally. In 2006 we were lucky enough to have a brand new purpose-built leisure club as part of the expansion of Burleigh Court, which saw a much bigger state of the art gym, three therapy rooms, a new sauna and steam room, as well as a reception and skin care retail area.

Reece Hart - Leisure Assistant

Hi, my name is Reece and I am a leisure assistant/ fitness instructor and have been at Burleigh Springs since June 2017. I love anything to do with fitness and helping people towards their goals as well as the social side of coming to the gym and meeting/ getting to know new people. Sport in general is something I’m very passionate about, especially football, rugby and boxing as I played/ trained a lot during my school and college years in Loughborough. I am also a big fan of darts, playing regularly and like a bit of friendly competition. Music is also a big passion of mine as I believe it’s the best source of motivation when doing a good workout. Please ask if you need any advice, I’m always happy to help!
