Price increases

PricesSince opening in January 2011, our competitors have increased their class prices regularly, but we have resisted the urge to follow suit, increasing our prices just once in 2012.

As such, we have been and are much cheaper than many other Pay-As-You-Go Health and Fitness businesses, but as of 6th April 2015, our Pay-As-You-Go fitness class prices will be increasing marginally as follows;

- Yoga, Pilates, Fitness Pilates and Manlates classes will become £6.50 per person
- All other adult classes will become £5.50 per person
- Junior Kung Fu will become £5 per person
- Junior Spin and Warrior Workout classes will become £4.50 per person

Kids Capoeira will remain at £4 per person

Pay-As-You-Go customers will still get a 13th class free when they fill up their fitness class loyalty cards.

As we are talking about the price of a bottle of wine for the highest priced classes and we have some of the best trainers around, we hope that this does not dismay and upset too many people.

After all, we are here to make you feel good, improve your health and dedicate all we do to achieving this, whereas a bottle of wine will give you zero nutritional benefits and will give you nothing more than a stinking hangover and a bit of a flabby gut!

We’d like to see more of you and have the regular numbers put more classes on, so in light of this, why not become a member do more classes, become more involved, fitter and healthier?!

Under the class membership you get 8 classes for £24 per month (so just £3 a class if you are doing 2 classes a week!), there are no fees, contracts, or tie-ins.

You can also top-up and get more classes and do our recommended weekly structure of 1x cardio, 1x strength & conditioning and 1x flexibility class. If doing 3 classes a week, you then pay just £2.80 per class!

Members also get 10% off food and drinks in the Café.

How good it that?! Take advantage people and let us help you more!

Warrior Bootcamp is coming!!!!

WarriorRegular attendees of our Warrior Workouts have seem dramatic improvements in cardio function and massive improvements in strength, fitness, agility and joint range of motion, as we change the routine every 4 weeks to keep things lively and challenging.

Due to the popularity, some struggle to get regular spaces, as every session is pretty much full each week. For others, sometimes other pressures get in the way of their training, or they just try and book too late, so they aren’t able to attend as regularly as they would like.

So, we are proposing a 4 week Friday 7am Warrior Bootcamp to ensure that people who want to do Warrior regularly, can.


- 15 persons max

- 7am-7.50am every Friday morning

- 4 week commitment from the outset (no possibility to join the course after it has started)

- starts Fri 10th April, ends Friday 1st May (rolling Bootcamps will following on if there is interest)

- £20 per person upfront for non-members, or 4 credits upfront for members (booking will take 1 credit, then email on sign-up so 3 more can be taken to cover the course)

As Mike is giving up his only later start in the week to come in early and do this and this will be a session for people to commit to to get results, there will be no refunds, no excuses and the need for a J.F.D.I attitude from all that attend!

It’s is on the online booking system now, so if you are in, let’s man / wo-man up, book in and do this!

New classes, if you want them…..

We love what we do and want to make things better for you, so we want to bring in some new classes from w/c 6th April 2015, to get you training more, having more fun and getting better results.

So, as time is very short, here’s what we are thinking;

-          50’s+ Low Impact Toning class – Mondays 9.15-10.15am (including a complimentary post workout Tea or Coffee).

-          Warrior Workout – Tuesdays 11-11.50am (with a nutritious post workout meal deal afterwards, if wanted).

As Spring is here, we also want to bring back our popular Bootcamp to get your ready for the Summer, but on a different format than before, using our results proven and extremely popular Warrior Workout.

-          Friday Warrior Workout Bootcamp 7am – 4 week course, 15 people max, £20 per person.

You can see a short clip of our Warrior Workout in the “Strength & Conditioning” section.

As time is short, would love to hear your thoughts, support or dismay at the above asap, so we can guage interest and hopefully get things rolling!

If you haven’t already, find and follow Bubalubristol on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube, feed your thoughts back on these classes and get really involved!

Sweat-Free, Stress-Free Weekends at Bubalu


Where did January go?! We have been really busy this January helping people get fitter, stronger and feeling good about themselves (and what could be lovelier than that?). Everyone has done so well, but now it is the start of February, don’t let all that hard work slip!

Remember, health is 80% nutrition (what fuel you put into your body) and 20% exercise (what good your body does with / gets from that fuel), so keep feeling good with feeding yourself good food to fuel your workouts and your lives. This is what ‘Fuel Good’ is – fitness and food together in harmony. So, whenever you see #fuelgood around Bubalu, or on our bubalubristol Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages (if you haven’t checked them out already – get to it, you need it in your lives!), you now know what this means.

Our fitness studios and gym stand alongside our healthy Café, but we know working out isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. So we have another way to help more people “fuelgood” without the exercise and get Bubalu one step closer to become the health and fitness hub for the South West, as it was always designed to be.

Everyone loves a bit of Sport, so as many will be aware, we have just installed Sky Sports and all other associated Sports channels here and we want Bubalu to become more of a community sports place where people come in order to involve themselves in health, fitness and fun (oh and of course, sports!). Now you can come every weekend without having to cram into a squashed bar, or squeezing onto someone’s sofa, have something fresh and tasty and watch your favourite Sports without having to do exercise (unless you want to).

Main Sports will be; F1 Grand Prix, Rugby Union (6 Nations, Rugby World Cup, European Cup etc), Cricket (World Cup, The Ashes etc) Tennis (Queen’s, Wimbledon, French Open etc), Cycling (Tour De France, Tour of Britain, Tour of Italy). Other Sports could be; Netball, Golf, Skiing / Snowboarding, Hockey, Football, Extreme Sports, if interest and requests for them!

9am to midday every Saturday and 10am to midday every Sunday will be dedicated to Sports (a good mixture of live, Sky+ recorded and DVD archive Sports) and during these times you can get a Bacon sandwich and a Tea or large Coffee for only £4! We will also show as many major live events / games in the weekend afternoons as possible.

If you are a team and want to watch something specific (something non-mainstream, or memorable events like 1966 World Cup, 2003 RWC highlights, 2013 Tour De France highlights etc), or have filmed footage of one of your games / events and want to make it a social gathering in our 60 seat Café, let us know what you want and we can arrange this for you.

We may use the bubalubristol social media channels to put options up for people to vote on, ie Rugby Union this Sunday 10am, 1973 All Blacks vs Barbarians, or 1997 3rd Lions Test? so you can choose what you want to watch and get more involved with us, so keep an eye out!

As the 60 seat Café is closed in the evenings, but staffed for evening classes, it can easily be used as a clubhouse / meeting space and can also show midweek sporting events, if there is interest. Basically, we can and will consider doing anything if it gets Bubalu used more and people healthier, so speak up, take full advantage and help us to help you!

Whether you are working out or grabbing a bite in our café, everyone at Bubalu would love to see you sat in front of the telly and taking it easy! Now where have you ever heard of a Health and Fitness business saying anything like that?
