A Social Enterprise
Energy Gym & CrossFit Skirmish is a non-profit making Social Enterprise which means every penny is re-invested into the gym and local community initiatives. This could mean new kit, additional training or youth training within the community. We operate from Boroughmuir Rugby & Community Sports Club (BRCSC) and are the training home of Boroughmuir Rugby, St Andrew Boat Club (Scotland’s oldest rowing club) and a raft of other local sports clubs. We are also a ‘young people’s gym’ with local schools and families who choose us because we provide a safe and progressive environment in which young people (12-17 yrs) can train. Our members have described us as the ‘Cheers’ gym, which creates a fitness family you want to be part of.
We believe we are the perfect antidote to big chain and local authority gyms, providing you with professional advice, a fitness lifestyle and a ‘second home’. We know from experience that getting fit and staying fit relies on great advice, consistent support and a community on which you can lean to achieve your goals.
We have a flexible memberships, indeed you can pay as you go for just £6 or choose monthly or annual memberships from just £22 per month. New membership includes a free induction or personal training session plus a 6 week training plan. Even better, a percentage of all memberships also goes to BRCSC, directly supporting grass roots rugby.
