New Waterfront Gym and Meet the Author of a new Ipswich History book

Ipswich’s newest gym – and the first on the town’s Waterfront –will be officially opened next week.

The doors of Profiles Waterfront Gym are already open and Borough Council sports bosses are inviting people to drop in and look around.


The gym, the fifth in the Profiles “family”, offers great value and no minimum contract or joining fees that tie you in. Dedicated staff members are on hand to help you get and stay fit. 


The gym offers top of the range Pulse equipment, including the latest Cirrus smart consoles and software that will create your very own training and entertainment programme.


The Profiles team is raring to go and would love to give you a guided tour and chat about your fitness needs. So, get along to Athena Hall on University Avenue, near to University Campus Suffolk’s (UCS) James Hehir Building.


Opening hours of the new gym, which is a partnership between Ipswich Borough Council and UCS, are:

Weekdays: 07am to 10pm

Weekends and Bank Holidays: 8am to 5pm.
