A good selection of resistance machines is also available and you will be kept entertained throughout your workout with TV screens playing music around the gym. A compact free weights area can be found towards the back of the gym.

Welcoming, helpful and knowledgable staff. Good facilities. Lots of cardio and weights equipment. Two types of locker - ones in the locker room take 20p non-refundable. The ones inside the workout area take a £1 coin, which is refundable. Clean facilities.

Reasonable range of equipment and not too busy (on a Sunday lunchtime though!). Limited space for stretching/free weights. Very few staff around. Fine for a straightforward workout.
