A Quick History

Riptide was originally set up as a gym-fitness centre located on Brighton beach, between the two piers, in 1996. 

In 2013, sadly, following an inspection of the arches structure in 2012 in preparation of the i360 development, it was identified that the Council could no longer rent that location to Riptide and we moved temporarily to Hove Park Bowls Lawns on Kingsway.

Riptide ran the exciting and popular Fit Camp training sessions before getting the green light to move to a long term location, Hove Park Pavilion,  within one of the best parks in Sussex, Hove Park next to the Old Shoreham Road.
