A decent neighbourhood gym. Newly rebuilt so all equipment is new. Good number of cardio machines, more limited selection of resistance machines. Interesting kinetic machines.

Very quiet on a Saturday morning. Refurb is all complete and gym and changing rooms in great condition. Machines all new. Gym split over 3 levels with lots of elliptical trainers, good number of treadmills. Smaller no. resistance machines, but enough. Overall a decent gym experience.

There is lots of building work outside, which cut off the entrance when I visited, so I had to go around the scaffolding. Once inside there is a decent amount of gym equipment. The staff in the gym were really friendly and made sure I was okay. Nice local gym.

The gym itself is great.
However, was disappointed that there was no mention that it going through refurbishment, which meant that parking was very problematic and will be extremely limited until the work has been completed in October.

Great gym, lots of machines and very quiet when I went (7;45am). New equipment and a whole floor for weights.

The new gym has now opened and it's really amazing value! Three floors of new equipment, and nice features on the machines. Easy to get on everything when I went (5pm on a weekday). Suana in the changing room too!

This gym is being upgraded in the next few weeks. I've used it a few times before, and it has all the equipment you need but is quite small (only four running machines) so there's a 20 minute maximum useage time at peak hours.

Went on a Saturday morning, I have the unlimited pass at the moment and it's great value! The machines are good and it's clean. I haven't seen it get too busy, might be difficult to use machines if there are a lot of people around.
