Cons outweighing pros. The terrible and too loud music is wrecking my hearing and getting me down, the cleanliness has slipped (the smell!) and the external door has been broken for months so it's now full of rough sleepers again.
Broken equipment hasn't been mended and kettlebells are still cheap terrible ones. Wish EasyGym opened earlier!
The Gym don't listen and don't care.
Open 24 hours
Free classes - including Virtual Les Mills
- Loud crappy music that they refuse to turn down - particularly offensive at 5.30am. It makes my heart sink when I have to walk in the door. It's sad that they don't seem to want to be inclusive. Anyone who isn't a dude bro probably won't like it, and if you want to listen to your own music you're seriously risking permanent hearing loss. EasyGym listened and keep the volume down in the mornings.
- Lots of machine weights, but not the best array of free weights at all. It would not be my choice for someone who is serious about training. EasyGym nearby is superior. The kettlebells are particularly cheap and nasty, but they have yet to change them despite multiple pleas.
- The rough sleeper issue has improved lately thanks to increased security, thankfully. It was quite nerve wracking trying to get in for a long time.
- No ledge in the shower cubicles for bottles. It's the little things, people!
- No sanitiser and paper towels to wipe down machines. They claim environment, but it seems like it's just them being cheap.
- Crappy members who leave every single dumbbell strewn across the floor ready for the morning.
- All the friendly staff seem to have left.
- They close for renovations for days, but it never seems to be any different afterwards.
- They don't enforce the no overnight storage rule for lockers, so I'll often be the only girl in the gym and yet see 30 locks on the changing room lockers, taking up all the decent sized ones!
- Disabled toilet smells rank.
