ECN  started its journey in 2010 when it was founded by Emma Colsey-Nicholls with the vision of creating a community for pole and fitness enthusiasts of all abilities.

Since it’s creation ECN has grown from strength to strength establishing a solid and highly respected reputation for being one of the premier alternative fitness establishments in Blackpool.

Fast forward 6 years, ECN has seen a change in ownership. However, the ground work of Emma’s legacy still remains the firm vision of the current owners.

Moving forward we want to ensure that the reputation, quality and environment of ECN and the support it provides to it’s members and clients  in their fitness journeys is paramount. In order to do this we are continually dedicated in providing the up most in customer satisfaction by ensuring that all our instructors and classes remain current with the desires and needs of the clientele.

On behalf of the ECN team we look forward to welcoming you in to our fitness family and allowing us to realise your potential.

For more information or to sign up for a free 7 day trial please do not hesitate to get in touch.


Our facilities boast a purpose built mirrored pole and aerial fitness studio equipped with 10 industry standard poles, aerial hoops and pole silks as well as safety mats.

We also have a fully equipped fitness studio containing a suspension training facility and a large range of equipment including kettle bells, medicine balls, studio bars and weights, boxing gloves and pads, resistance bands, aerobic steps and much more. Working up a sweat has never been so fun!

All looks a bit scary….?

Don’t worry we will give you a full induction and tour of the studios upon arrival. From there our instructors will show you everything you need to know before your first class with us.

In addition to our fitness studios we are lucky enough to be able to provide a unique therapy to everyone who attends the studio in a relaxing confidential therapy room located on the premises. There is nowhere else in the Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre area that offers fitness and KORE Therapy under one roof!

Hi! My name is Sophie and I am the co-owner of ECN Bodyworks.

My journey started 3 years ago when I had an accident and fell off my horse whilst training for a competition, leaving me unable to move or conduct basic daily tasks. After numerous unsuccessful treatments, I was recommended to visit a KORE therapist, and after 4 treatments it had changed my life for the better.

I then began my amazing journey of qualifying as a therapist so I could then pass on my previous experience to help people in similar circumstances.

My main aim is to ensure you and everyone at ECN has an enjoyable experience with us and let us help you change your life for the better.

If there is anything I can do to help or assist you, please feel free to approach me.
