Lindsay O - 29th June 2014

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.

Catrina H - 12th May 2014

Good gym. I went in the daytime on a Monday and was able to use all of the equipment. They have lots of cardio machines, which is great. The changing rooms were tidy too. I'll be going back!

Reasonable gym, not too busy (Sunday lunchtime though!). Lacks a proper weights room; there are dumbells, Viprs and medicine balls, but no bar weights. Plenty of treadmills and crosstrainers. Changing rooms basic but clean.
