Eve Dobson


I actually joined Gym & Slim as a member, I was getting married and really wanted to step up my fitness regime. I loved the concept – a full body workout in 30 minutes in a relaxed & fun environment – wow it was perfect!

I could also see how much more the gym could offer. I quickly put in place a more structured approach to the gym floor; regular programme reviews, fitness assessments, 1 to 1 tuition for anyone that needed it (whether a new lady or just someone struggling to get to grips with the machines). I introduced a weight loss programme, an extensive cardio area, coffee area, regular social events and started raising money for various charities.

My vision was clear – I wanted to create a safe & fun environment for ladies to workout.  I wanted to create a community within a community, somewhere that truly cared about ladies wellbeing and where ladies feel they can belong. Over time we have achieved this and so much more.  I’m very proud to be the owner of such a great gym!


I joined the rest of the team a year ago and can’t believe how enjoyable and rewarding it is to be working in such a great environment.  It allows women to keep fit and healthy, whether that be in a quiet environment or enjoying the interaction of others.


Admin Manager

I’m Eve’s Mum! I have been working here since 2007 when Eve took it over.  Within just a few weeks members told us how much it had improved – not least of all the atmosphere.  I love working here, though I am mainly in the office I do spend quite a bit of time in the gym talking to the ladies, many of whom have been here since before 2007.


Gym Instructor

I have worked here for almost 6 years and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.

I have always enjoyed sporting activities, I played squash throughout the 70′s and then made the transition to tennis. I also enjoy swimming and obviously working out at Gym & Slim. I hope very much that I can continue to keep fit whilst at the same time enjoying my employment with my wonderful colleagues and the lovely members.


I’m the newest members of the team! Over the years I have been a member of several gyms and I can honestly say none have compared to Gym and Slim. It’s uniqueness is that all ages and abilities are catered for in a friendly, supportive environment. There is a warm, welcoming atmosphere in which to work out and each member is valued and supported throughout their time with us. I thoroughly love working at such a great place.
