Founded in 1995, Absolute Training and Nutrition started from one man's vision to provide an all-inclusive dedicated fitness training program with qualified nutritional advice, to residents in North Devon. Originating from out the boot of his car and building up to a 5,000sq ft fitness facility boasting custom-made equipment, Wayne's transformation of Absolute is probably the most remarkable transformation of his career.

At Absolute Training & Nutrition, our clients are our only focus and achieving you personal goals is what we show up every day to deliver!

For those looking for just a gym, we are probably not what you are looking for.  What we offer is so much more than a gym, because we are results-driven, centred on measurable goals and personal transformations.

Established for over 15 years, we know what it takes to help our clients achieve their goals. All that we ask is that you show up, be your best and commit fully to the program, and you will be sure to surprise yourself with what you can achieve at Absolute.

You will find a welcoming smile every time you walk through the door because you will never be just a number to us.  Every member of the team here at Absolute is dedicated to getting to know you and wants to help you succeed.

We are all trained in fitness education and have years of experience, however, we are also normal people who understand what challenges normal people face when starting out on a significant lifestyle journey.  Together we will help you to see amazing results and develop a newfound level of confidence.

Our PTs are here to support you. We want you to succeed as much as you do, which is why we will check-in with you weekly, as well as be reachable to answer any questions you have. Your weight loss journey can be an emotional one, so we’re here to provide you with everything you need to make it as easy for you as possible.


Your gym bag just got a whole lot lighter as we have made it even easier to squeeze your workout into an ever shorter time frame, because in a mere 15 minutes post session, you can be office ready, eliminating the need to go home and refresh yourself before heading to work.

Our bespoke luxury changing facilities include overhead soaker showers, complimentary soaps and shampoo, hair dryer, hair straighteners and complimentary towel service. 


Finding time to have a pre or post workout meal isn't always easy to plan for, and that is why we have an onsite tuck shop stocked with healthy drinks, crisps and nutrition bars to keep you pre and pos workout ready.

Nutrition is a huge part of what we deliver and so being able to offer our clients something healthy and nutritious to complement their workout is all part of our ethos.

Items are priced individually.  Please ask a member of staff for more details. 


As part of our commitment to providing a luxury and high end service from beginning to end, all clients of Absolute have access to not only our luxury changing facilities but also our complimentary towel service.  So no more carrying a towel around with you when you're planing a visit to the gym, simply grab your trainers and turn up, ready to work hard, and will take care of the rest.

Shower towels and hand towels are with our compliments, simply pop them in the laundry basket when you're done and we will take care of the rest!

At Absolute, we want our clients to feel at home, which is why we have a designated coffee area with complimentary drinks. Far too often it can seem as though you’re pushed out the door after your workout, making you feel like just another number. However, our clients like to rewind after their sessions, catch up with other members or simply take five minutes before getting back to their busy schedule. With a range of hot drinks on offer, you can make yourself comfortable and enjoy some time to yourself.


Our range of Absolute Gym Wear is available to purchase from our studio and also online.  With a selection of different ranges to choose from, and a variety of vest tops, t-shirts, hoodies and leggings, our Gym Wear range has something for everyone.  Even a beanie for those colder months.


Hydration hydration hydration.  It may seem like we talk about water all of the time, but staying hydrated whilst working out is so key to performance.  Keep yourself well hydrated with our filtered cold water dispenser.  Just bring a bottle!



Whether you are new to training or a seasoned athlete, it is incredibly important to look after your skeletal and muscular framework to not only prevent injury but to aid in physical recovery.

It is a well-known fact that a healthy well-balanced diet and the correct amount of water aid in muscular and joint recovery.  But did you know that massage also speeds up the recovery time after training?  

Massage therapy after training increases circulation and opens the pores to the muscle structure so that fluids and nutrients can pass through more effectively.

The Wellbeing Suite at Absolute can offer Sports Massage Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage and Holistic Massage in Barnstaple, North Devon.

At Absolute, we take your results seriously and every single member of our team wants to help you succeed. As a private gym in Roundswell, Barnstaple, you can rest assured that every other person here is also on a journey so you’ll find a community of like-minded people to learn from, work alongside and inspire you on your path.
