Mark S

Very clean and well kept. Plenty of CV machines but very poor range of free weights (nothing above 10kgs).

University of Sussex Sports Centre says:

Hi Mark thanks for the feedback. On the free weights we do have two fitness facilities on campus and I am guessing you went to the sport centre where there is limited weight (barbell up to 35kg and also kettlebells) . The other facility has both options including plates and bars and also dumbbells upto 50kg. Next time you visit please do ask reception on where it is located as very close.

No squat rack and barbell/plates here which was a huge disappointment. only thing which seems to be really missing as far as I can tell.

University of Sussex Sports Centre says:

Hi Paul Thanks for the email and thanks for the feedback. For info we have two gyms at Sussex one at the sport centre which has limited free weights and one at the Falmer Sports Complex which has a rig, lifting platforms and a wide variety of free weights. I would suggest if you come again do head for the complex.
