David Lloyd Leisure launches Olympic inspired Volleybody

May 8, 2013

Europe’s premier health, sports and leisure group, David Lloyd Lesiure is the first major UK health and fitness operator to bring Volleybody to its members; a new high-intensity fitness programme inspired by the regimes of the world’s best volleyball players.


Founded on the scientific training principles of professional beach volleyball athletes, Volleybody was conceived following the London Games in 2012 and inspired by both the energy of the sport and the athletes’ incredible physiques.

Aimed at people with good levels of fitness, the programme has been devised by the British Beach Volleyball strength and conditioning coach, Kate Eddy, and the London 2012 Olympic team themselves including Zara Dampney and Shauna Mullin.

Performed to music, the new and exciting classes last an hour and take inspiration from three core moves during a beach volleyball game; defending, hitting and blocking a ball.

Volleybody founder and managing director Katie Taylor said, “We realised there must be a way of taking the top volleyball players’ training programme and creating a version for the average woman and Volleybody does just that.

“We are thrilled to be launching Volleybody exclusively to David Lloyd Leisure members. This is a completely unique class which will help everybody achieve a volley body in time for summer.”

Volleybody will soon be available to members at David Lloyd Leisure clubs in Kensington, Farnham, Milton Keynes, Raynes Park, Fulham and Chigwell, with a wider roll-out planned later in 2013.
