The site also runs a SMART Technology system so if you plan on visiting this site regularly this can be used to track your performance and progress.

The free weights and machines are a floor apart, but pretty much everything you need is there somewhere (weights & CV machines). I went mid morning and both rooms were almost empty. For a central-ish London gym, it's easily good enough..

A little difficult to find & bit of a maze inside, but decent range of equipment and free weights & 3 squat racks.

Despite filling out the form online on this site, they made me fill out the paper form in person as well. Other than that the staff are very friendly and helpful. The place is clean and new looking. The weights room is small, but good enough for me. There is lots of cardio equipment.

awesome functional training zone but the other areas are all in small rooms on different floors - barbells in one room, dumbbells in another and cardio and resistance machines in a third.

Went on a Saturday morning and was quiet. Changing rooms made me feel like i was back at school! It has all the equipment you need, cross trainer made funny noises so guessing some it might be old . I go here more for convenience and location, just for a quick workout, nothing more.

Very lengthy process of redeeming ones pass: at least 10 minutes between filling out 2 forms, waiting for the receptionish to input it all into her computer, showing ID, paying the deposit for the key, getting changed and then having to go through an induction. Despite that, I had a great workout!
