The gym can be found in the 'London Road' building (the one with a ramp leading to the front door) and is clearly marked on the many University campus maps which are dotted around the surrounding area.

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. There are also a number of classes available, most can be attended without the need to book however Spinning classes here are very popular and should always be booked in advance (020 7815 7812).

Easy to deal with. New how to input my code for pay as you gym. Barely anyone working out so no waiting time

A good experience marred only by the choice and volume of "music" users are obliged to listen to and from which there is no respite, even in the changing rooms. But this gym is not alone in this serious and endemic failing.They should try a 'music-free' month and watch how the gym usage changes.

The staff were friendly and helpful. There were plenty of machines and the whole experience was a positive one.

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..

Quiet gym, friendly staff. Very empty on weekends.

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