AT FIVE STAR WE
HAVE A HEART
Behind the scenes, (but always at our core) is an unexpected ethos. We’re always striving to do right by our community and look to the future. From our charitable initiatives to the sustainable solutions we support, join a gym with heart.
At Five Star Gym we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. We’ve focused on reducing our consumption of materials at the heart of every process that we do.
Introducing a new membership system we had the opportunity to look at how we operate and to reduce the impact we have as a business on consumable resources. No more plastic cards. No more needless reams of paper. We aim to digitise our processes and systems as much as possible.
We’re working with our water bottle suppliers to get water in a can or carton to try and reduce our plastic waste. In the meantime, our members have the option of water bottles from recycled plastic or reusable water bottles and jugs. We hope to see single-use plastic be a thing of the past. Our dedicated recycling bin means any paper or plastic that we do need to use and throw away stays in the recycling chain for future use and doesn’t end up in a landfill site.
Five Star Gym is pleased to sponsor the following athletes and teams for the 2019/2020 Season:

The Grassroots Project – was created by a team of local community members who recognised a need to offer a wider range of care and leisure services to the community, expanding choices for people that need them the most. The Grassroots Project offers horticulture facilities, activities and leisure services, combined with essential life skills to promote an active future for children and adults alike. They provide our own transport links to and from our facility ensuring that our services are accessible to everyone in the community.
We are extremely pleased to announce our charity of the year, the Alexander Devine Hospice. The Hospice provides respite care, specialist play, symptom management, family support, end of life care and bereavement support for children and families in Berkshire. The work that they do is incredible, and we are so proud to have the charity’s two founding members - John and Fiona Devine, as long-term members of Five Star.
