about us

Welcome at Holmes Place

Holmes Place is the leading premium health, fitness and wellness provider and has been active in Germany since 2001. In our fourteen German clubs in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Lübeck and Essen, our first-class trainers look after the health and fitness of our members.

Our wide range of services includes group fitness, personal training, strength and cardio training, outdoor training, nutrition, wellness & spa, prevention courses, workshops and an extensive digital offering that is unique in Europe.

With STORM we also serve the bootcamp sector, SHIFT Outdoor Training is our outdoor programme, and with Holmes Place Boutique we open new studios for group fitness classes.

This is our story

In 1980, the first Holmes Place Club opened in Chelsea, London in a small cul-de-sac called Holmes Close. The Holmes Place brand quickly gained cult status and developed into a respected health club company operating throughout Europe with more than 5 million members.

Holmes Place Germany

Holmes Place has also existed in Germany since 2001. The opening of our first club on Berlin's Gendarmenmarkt was soon followed by other clubs, first in Hamburg (Club Hamburger Meile) and in Cologne (Holmes Place Am Gürzenich).

We opened clubs in Düsseldorf (Provinzialplatz and Königsallee) and Lübeck (Linden-Arcaden), followed in 2009 by the takeover of a few Elixia clubs in Berlin (Neue Welt in Neukölln and our club at Ostkreuz in Friedrichshain) and Hamburg (Bahrenfeld).

In 2012 and 2014, the Berlin clubs at Potsdamer Platz and on Schlossstraße in Boulevard Berlin in Steglitz followed.

In 2016, we took over a former Hard Candy club in Berlin Charlottenburg, and in 2017 we opened new clubs in Düsseldorf (Am Seestern) and Essen Rüttenscheid.

STORM Bootcamp

In autumn 2020, we will expand our offer with the bootcamp format STORM - a high-intensity full-body workout for daily peak performance and faster results, at home in our Holmes Place Clubs. STORM is currently available twice in Berlin and Hamburg, with further club openings planned.
