Energy Gym is is non-profit making Social Enterprise. Energy Gym is part of CrossFit Skirmish and was established by Gavin & Siobhan Barry (pictured 2nd & 3rd from left), who with their General Manager Callum Watt (pictured first from left), lead a team of over 10 Fitness Instructors & Personal Trainers. Our team is impressive with all-round fitness qualifications (including sports science degrees and fitness instructor diplomas), as well as specialising in a raft of different fitness disciplines from Body Building, to Olympic Weight Lifting, Powerlifting, Pilates, CrossFit, Rugby, Hockey, Nutrition and Sports Massage. Many of our team have worked for the big corporate gyms (Virgin, Pure, Ballantynes, Greens) but have moved to Energy Gym because it is one of the few small independent gyms left in Edinburgh as well as being a social enterprise that works to improve the fitness of the local community and sports groups of all ages. They realise that the community at Energy Gym is second-to-none, offering a personal and supportive environment that simply can’t be found elsewhere.
