About Us


There has been a gym at the Ariane site for many years but in July 2020 JD’S Oldskool Gym was born, with the vision for a gym full of the best equipment, where people could come and forget about their worries and just train.  

At JD’s we understand you, we are the same as you and we want the best for you.

The gym is our life, it’s all that we know, we understand the mental impact it has on people when they cannot train. We are all the same. 

JD’S has undertaken a massive transformation within the last 12 months. The gym is bigger and better than ever before. We cover all types of training from bodybuilding, strongman to powerlifting and HIIT classes. We have left no stone unturned in the quest for the complete gym. 

The gym offers help and support with whatever your own personal goals are, we have such a wide and varied collection of members there really is something for everyone.

Our team are the most experienced in the area and are here to help you.

Let us help you achieve the best version of yourself in a great friendly atmosphere, full of the best equipment with the best knowledge.
