Another decent session at Walthamstow Leisure Centre. A little overpriced for what you get but it's a good, basic gym with friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.

Ok functional gym. Nothing flashy but a good basic range of equipment and not too busy on a Sunday morning. Friendly helpful staff.

The gym itself is carpeted and quite smelly. There is a good range of equipment and it wasn't busy (on a Tuesday night).
