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 gym houses a large selection of brand new gym equipment. More than 40 stations are available here along with a wide selection of free weights, kettle bells and a Smith machine. 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).

Pretty good gym, just quite busy today and staff were not entirely helpful.

This was my second time at this gym. The staff are friendly and helpful. The building and changing rooms are a little old & run down but the equipment is great and the gym is not busy. I will definitely be back.

Gym covers a few floors but it is easy enough to find the different rooms. A few other people in the gym but it wasn't busy so we didn't have to wait for equipment. Friendly & helpful staff on reception. We were given a tour of the facilities.

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.
