We opened our doors for the first time in 2012 as LEAR Fitness: a family business in Leamington Spa and a short time later our second site in Harrogate followed. LEAR is a combination of the family’s initials; the close-knit and family-centred ethos is something that has stayed with us from the beginning.
When we started, much of our inspiration came from a desire to create a welcoming environment for like-minded people looking for somewhere totally different to exercise. We didn’t buy in to the hollow promises and profit-first mentality of the health and fitness industry and knew we weren’t alone.
Our founders, Ray and Andrew, changed our name in 2020 to LEAR Health Partners to reflect the changes we were seeing in the world around us. What our clients truly love about us (and what we truly love about them) is the partnership that is formed from their health-related journey.
We are invested in your long-term goals and an overall improvement that is sustainable and enjoyable. We think health should be a journey, not a quick fix, with constant guidance from our team of Physiotherapists and Sports Rehabilitators.
Unlike the rest of the industry, at LEAR, everything we do is done in partnership with our clients. Starting with our promise to you on day one:
“Lucy pitches exercises around my capability and has an amazing memory for what works for me and doesn't. It is so refreshing to find a fitness company that really cares about my health and fitness. The Health Partnership approach provides a regularly reviewed programme tailored to my needs.”
“Our partnership with LEAR has helped us to offer a more holistic approach to cancer care. Their specialist trained physiotherapists are qualified to work with cancer patients and are aware of the common side effects of the disease and treatment. We are completely confident when we refer our patients to LEAR that they are in very safe hands”
