That was the business plan when Virgin Active Founder and CEO, Matthew Bucknall, first met Richard Branson back in July 1997. Richard's message was very simple – spend the next year travelling at my expense, but make sure that you create the very best health clubs in the world. We think we've achieved that, and much, much more. Virgin Active is a globally recognised exercise brand with over 230 clubs in 8 countries and more than 1.2 million members. As part of the Virgin Group, Virgin Active disrupted the UK fitness industry in 1999 by creating large health clubs offering an unprecedented number of world-class health and fitness products and services all under one roof. We now operate 42 clubs in the UK with an unparalleled collection of iconic locations in London and around the UK. A global industry leader for two decades, Virgin Active UK continues to innovate by developing a more personalised gym, multi-boutique experience and purpose to inspire people to live an active life. We’re always on the hunt for unique individuals with bucket loads of talent. If you’ve got what it takes or want to share an idea you think could be great, we’re all ears.
