The original Bodyworld

Bodyworld Taunton opened in 2016 with a mission to bring a different bodybuilding and training environment to Taunton. We felt most local gyms were not focussing on training, education or creating enough of a positive training environment.

We wanted to create a place where people could work hard to achieve their goals. A place people could train with like-minded people and be treated with respect. Over the last 3 years we have worked hard to build that positive training environment.

We have helped members across all ages and training disciplines by providing encouragement and education to support the achievement of their goals.

We are proud so many members have achieved so much in such a short period of time.. These achievements range from personal goals for body transformation right up to competing at an international level. 

Bodyworld is in its infancy and we have huge plans for the future. We will continue to strive to improve, support and grow so that we provide access to our training facilities and community to as many people as possible.

The government has now agreed to the next step in their strategy of easing lock down measures with effect from July 4th 2020. This latest step permits Gym’s to re-open as long as guidance is followed and certain safety restrictions are put in place to protect customers. 

Bodyworld Taunton is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our customers. We will be re-opening the gym on xxxxx under strict operating procedures. This will include, hourly training sessions, a one-way direction within the gym to maintain social distancing and a 30 minute safety period between sessions to allow staff to undertake cleaning and other measures to keep our customers safe.

In order to maintain social distancing and to operate a fair procedure to welcome customers back to the gym, we will be offering x,  1 hour training sessions each day with a limited number of customers allowed per training session. Access to these sessions will be via Online Booking ONLY and if you have not booked your training session and you arrive at the gym, you will not be permitted to train.

Online Booking will operate on a first come, first served basis. We will be offering priority booking to current DD members but we will make sure there are spaces for PAYG members, especially those who had time left on their PAYG membership when lock down own began.
