I joined B'ham one when was 10.99 and very pleased I did. Very good value, clean, no frills gym with a good selection of top quality equipment which is all brand new at opening. Once a quota has been filled the price goes up firstly to 12.99 then 15.99 so join quick!

Can anyone let me know what the freeweights section is like? Do they have plenty and larger weights (30kg+)?
Thanks.
#6
these gyms are meant to be extremely good value for money.
#7
I joined the one in Hounslow, and it was brilliant value. My only regret is that I live so far away. Best value gym by far, as they had an abundance of equipment, complete with individual showers, unlike LA Fitness. They also don't rip you off with huge admin fees, it's usually open 24 hours a day, they cater for 30 day rolling contracts, and the equipment is usually in good condition.

I use to go to Virgin Active, so I know good quality when I see it, and if you can live with there being there extras (no swimming pool or sauna, no free internet, no free towel etc), it's worth checking out.

Not really. These places try to cater for all sorts and so aren't really for the serious bodybuilder/powerlifters, although that's not to say you won't get some use out of them. You should be able to cobble enough disks on the Olympic bars but the dumbbells fizzle out at about 35kg. Moreover, there is pretty much only one of each size above 20kg and never enough benches. Avoid peak periods if you can. Can't grumble about the prices, though.

Any chance of one in London ?
#10
can you imagine the clientelle if they are only charging £10??? i mean, Fitness First is bad enough with the posers and meat heads and groups of chavvy lads hanging round the equipment thinking they are it..and they charge £27 pm - This place is going to be hell.

I ended up going to Banantynes as it sempt a lot better quality of member and a more enjoyable experience - granted its £42 pm, but highly worth it imho.

So nice to see a reasonable priced gym! the cheapest we can get where I live is £34 per month and I'm sure thats the average around this area. The nicest gym is around £80 per month!

not greatthat they arent manned after 8pm...not good from a H&S point of view...gym only but pretty cheap though

Looks great. Too bad it's 10miles away but I've only heard good things about these gyms. I hope it puts an end to other gyms locking you into a 12 month contract :(

God I wish I was near one of these. I pay £45 a month for an ok gym.
#16
this must be so good! imagine casually walking into an empty gym at like 12am, so cheap too, if only there was one near me.

I've used to go to the pure gym in Leeds and at £9.99 a month, I've never had any problems with the people inside. Infact quite a few people are more than helpful. Just because some people are smart with their money or don't have a lot to spent today doesn't mean they are scum (Which is pretty much what you are saying). I'm sure they are glad they don't have your kind in the gym.

Lets be honest, if you're sensible then H&S isnt an issue......H&S is only for complete numbskulls, people with no common sense, or people who are purposefully looking to claim compensation of a firm.

My only worry about it not being manned would be the safety of the place - i mean, a group of moroninc lads could do a lot of damage with those kinda weights lying around!!

Thankfully, I've never encountered anything like that at the places I have been. It's just that you get a few numpties who don't have a clue what they are doing and so stuff gets broken. And equipment goes missing; particularly the pulley clasps and weight stack pins. God knows what people do with those.
I would also avoid the lockers inside the changing rooms. Somebody did the rounds of those at the Wolverhampton Puregym one weekend.

Nope....you are jumping to conclusions!!

I have been a member of many many gyms in my time - everything from the local sweathouse gym, right through to the middle of the road Fitness First, DW.....and onto the like of Bannantynes and even Hoar Cross Hall...so i can say i have a good idea from experience of what certain gyms bring.

You are quite correct in that yes, 'most' people that frequent the cheaper gyms are decent people, but unfortunately ive found that the cheaper gym do tend to have a higher percentage of what i call 'annoying' members.....these can be groups of lads who see it as a social thing and hardly do much workout , through to complete numbties who think its 'hard' and 'tough' to crash the weights on the floor and grunt loudly. Ive just found that the more expensive the gym membership, the more it filters out these kinds of people.

This is just from my experience.

There is one in london in west hampstead, excellent gym this. as for the freeweights section i tend to disagree, they have weighs on there upto about 38 kg and at least a set of each if not more. There are at least 6 benches in the area too so if thats anything to go by might help for other branches. Ive been a member of Soho Gyms as well as LA Fitness and this is easily as good as them for all the equipment they have, even at busy times ive never had a problem getting on any machine i wanted as the 24 hours allows everyone to go at more convenient times to them.
#26
They're opening one in Swansea too, not sure why its not listed, unless its not open for a while yet, which could mean the offer won't apply then :(

Vauxhall/Hounslow/Hampstead with Kingston opening soon.

Im a member of the vauxhall gym and its superb value for money, you can even freeze your membership when your going away for a bit, and the fact its 24/7 is great

Thats the problem with this one being in the city centre, the money saved will go on parking, im using the Pure gym in Bitterne, its a little bit more but plenty of free parking and only 5 mins up the road from me.

I go to the 'Gym Group' unit in Manchester - great value for money. Plenty of equipment for all shapes and sizes, well staffed, very clean, loads of classes etc. For the money, you'll struggle to do better believe me.
If the others are anything like mine, then it's a bladdy bargain. Hot.
