Better members can use the app to view centre timetables, book fitness classes and manage bookings on the move for any of the Better leisure centres, UK wide.
You should note that on download you will have to set up a new account for the app. We are working with third party suppliers to move towards an easier sign on process using member account information but this is not yet available.
What's in the app:
Fitness classes bookings
Check availability, make a booking and manage your bookings – wherever you are. Confirmation will be sent to the email address set up on your pre existing account.
Better membership card
Upload your membership barcode and you'll never have to use your card again, making use of the facility even easier. Instead of your card you will be able to scan the bar code on the app at the kiosk or turnstiles.
Find out about our opening times, facilities and activities as well as location information should you need it with the ability to add additional centre tiles.

Ratings and Reviews
Pointless and terrible!
This app is disgraceful!!! Do not download it seeing as it is useless. You create an account or log in if you already have one but if you try to book activities it takes you to the online website. The main reason I downloaded this application was because the online website wasn’t working because that is awful too. It is very difficult to use the website and the app for multiple reasons. I still have not been able to book an activity due to the fact that it won’t let me add my membership.
If you don’t want to waste your time or be confused, DO NOT download this app!
Pointless & non-functioning
You’d think that as a minimum being able to use the app to book classes etc would be a function? Nope, it just gives a link back to the website, which freezes and won’t let you enter details.
Website doesn’t work from my iPad either. They are useless.
Better Gyms really are a misnamed company, nothing about their facilities or their organisational skills is better. They’ve run my local gym almost into the ground since taking over - the only reason I am still a member there is because of my PT, otherwise I would have left months ago. Avoid them.
Like most of Better Gym’s IT infrastructure this is pretty shocking. You can’t use your own log in details (no integration with Better’s own membership files) so you have to create an entirely new one. The main functionality you’d expect is being able to book and manage classes. But the app just opens the internet link that you’d use on a web portal anyways and therefore you have to log in again which is completely pointless. Better need to invest in their IT, it’s amazing they’re so behind on this. Prob best joining another gym until they get their act together.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
