how it works

When you arrive at the Fitness Factory Cardiff, the first thing we do is give you a personalised 1 on 1 consultation with one of our trained fitness experts. Your personal fitness consultant will ask you a series of comprehensive questions designed to assess your level of physical fitness, commitment, and any limitations you may have. Then we take you through a FREE workout where additional assessment is done to determine strengths and weaknesses in your posture, mobility, and flexibility. Once your fitness assessment is complete, we’ll sit down with you to establish your GOAL and layout your customised success plan. Don’t waste another day just exercising, contact us to schedule your consultation and start moving towards your goal today.

about the ffc gym

The Fitness Factory Cardiff is 4000 square foot facility located 10 minutes walk from Cardiff City Centre and 10 minutes walk from Cardiff Bay. This unique facility combines all of FFC' innovative, functional training equipment with the methodologies and highly trained personnel to provide you with unmatched performance.

The Fitness Factory Cardiff Gym utilises highly refined equipment and effective training techniques to help you achieve maximum fat loss and performance gains.


The Fitness Factory Cardiff goes far beyond what either a warehouse “box” or high end commercial gym can offer. We combine unconventional training systems with the most up to date coaching methods. We understand what people go through in their struggle to achieve the physique they desire. We guide you through the fundamentals of nutrition and mental preparation that work along side your personalised training program and towards the body you desire.


The Fitness Factory Cardiff is for men and women of all ages and abilities. We will provide our members with the techniques and methods to overcome any physical challenge. Whether it is to achieve your desired physique, correct poor posture from sitting at your desk for nine hours a day or simply maintain a level of sustainable injury free fitness. The Fitness Factory Cardiff is as versatile and as adaptable as the methods themselves. 


Our philosophy is to educate our members and clients not just train them. We want to focus on bringing all aspects of fitness to novice and experienced gym users; these include fat loss training techniques, functional strength, power, conditioning, and agility. We want to educate you properly while working towards long term improvement using kettlebells, sandbags, prowlers, calisthenics, dumbbells, medicine balls, barbells, assault bikes and more.




Whether you are working with your trainer one-on-one or in a small group, each session is programmed and guided by the Fitness Factory Cardiff Gym principles and philosophy.




These 60-Minute semi-private personal training sessions integrate traditional styles of barbell and dumbbell training with unconventional techniques. With a focus on smaller groups, hybrid sessions are great for strength and muscle development in a more personal setting. This is the most cost effective way to get all the benefits of a personal training package.


This 6 week body transformation package is designed to burn as many calories as you can in every training session you attend.

You don't have to jump on the scales or have to have your body fat percentage taken. The hook to this challenge is; you buy a pair of jeans 1-2 sizes smaller than your current size and work towards fitting into them over the 6 weeks. 

The sessions use a HIIT style training system coupled with our state of the art heart rate tracking system to maximise calorie burn.














These 60 Minute larger group sessions (4-10 people) use training systems not usually used in your conventional larger commercial gym facilities. Typical training systems used are Tabata, Every Minute On The Minute (EMOM), As Many Rounds As Posible (AMRAP) and your morn conventional HIIT type sessions. The number one goal of each session is to burn as many calories as possible in 60 minutes.

We understand that making a decision to work out in a gym is difficult.

“Will I like the gym or other members?”

“Will I really stick with it this time?”

“Will the staff appreciate my business after the sale?

These are fair questions that can only be answered by coming in to meet us and having a free, no-obligation FREE 5 DAY PASS to come and check us out. It’s hard to hide bad service and lack of knowledge face-to-face.


We’re proud of what we do here at FFC and feel that if we’re given a chance you’ll want to come and workout with us. We’ve been servicing clients in this community for over 10 years and are proud to be a locally owned family run business.

We are looking forward to welcoming you whether you have been a regular gym bunny or if you have never set foot in a gym before.

At the Fitness Factory gym Cardiff you'll discover a fun and friendly atmosphere, supervised by highly educated and experienced instructors who are on hand to ensure that every minute you spend in our Cardiff gym, delivers maximum results.


"We're not here just to train, we're here to educate".
