Gym is a bit old but I had both floors to myself. Good for a quick session.

Often nobody at reception to allow access to gym. Waits can be very long, which is very inconvenient.

The gym was quite small, and as a result didn't have a barbell/bench combo, but there are plenty of dumbbells, a few machines and a bench press machine. It was quiet too, all in all, got everything done in peace with no fighting over equipment.

Cute small school gym. Not bad though not great either. Sometimes i had to switch the plugs on some equipment. I thought it wasnt working at first.

Thanks for letting us know that this had to be the case. We will make sure this will not happen again on your next visit as we want our customers to enjoy our gym as much as possible

I would describe this as a small gym room as expected for a school. Was fine for the price. Only issue was the door access locked behind you so you had to walk a long way round to get back to reception. Perhaps the college should have guest door access cards for a deposit as other gyms do.

Hi , Just to give you an update we have now introduced this system into place to make your visit easier

Very small gym with fairly basic equipment. Was completely empty when I went, but good enough for the price if you have a simple workout.
