Membership options

We have two options for membership:

  • Our Pay As You Go option allows you to book and pay for one class at a time. The drop-in price of a class varies between £3 for short Metafit classes and £5 for other longer classes.
  • The unlimited monthly membership includes all the fitness and yoga classes on the timetable for £25 per month and can be purchased in the “Memberships” section on either the Glofox app or the web portal. The only things it doesn't cover are the additional courses and workshops we run from time to time, as these are always outside the usual class timetable and come with additional costs to the charity. The membership involves a recurring monthly payment which is automatically debited from your account until you cancel. The membership can be cancelled at any time by emailing cancel@projekt42.co.uk.

Any of these membership options can be purchased via either the Glofox app or the web portal

A gym

From Abs Blast and Animal Flow® to Metafit and Yin Yoga, whatever your fitness level, experience, age or mindset, there's something for you. We want to make exercise and fitness accessible and affordable for everyone — classes start at just £2.50 per class and we've even got an area for kids to play while their parents work out!

Building happy bodies and strong minds

We want to change the way people think about mental health.

Our goal is to help people understand the connection between their mental health and physical fitness through carefully crafted fitness and yoga classes, guided meditation, life coaching and counselling.

Profit for purpose

Any profit we make goes back into the local community, allowing us to provide free memberships, counselling and life coaching for the people who need them most. Projekt 42 doesn't have corporate shareholders. Projekt 42 belongs to the local community.

We want to create a community hub

Whilst we develop our purpose-built gym and wellness centre just off Leith Walk, we are running fitness and yoga classes in a TEST_ZONE at the Newkirkgate shopping centre in Leith.

We're an independent charity
