David Lloyd Fitness weekend membership for £14.99 per month (selected locations)

Found 10th Sep 2011
David Lloyd Fitness WEEKEND membership for £14.99 per month. I.e. any Saturday and/or Sunday every weekend.

Note: this is not at all David Lloyd fittness clubs, only selected ones (so don't bite my head off if yours isn't on the list!).

I took out mine at the Leicester club. after checking the list the clubs it is available at:

- Leicester (Meridian Leisure park, NOT Narborough)
- Kingston
- Maidenhead
- Maidstone
- Solihull Fitness
- Stevenage

This is for full access (i.e pool, gym, classes such as Yoga), and suits people who would like a gym membership at a decent club but does want to pay the astronomical monthly fees, or only has the time to go at weekends.

The catches are quite minor too. You have to pay a one off joining fee of £25, and can't cancel for the first 3 months. However, it does automatically switch to a month-to-month contract after that first 3 months.

To put this deal in perspective, a monthly membership for full Monday to Sunday would cost at least £80 at most David Lloyd clubs .

It might be a decent price considering how much it is for a monthly fee but speaking for where I live in Maidstone there are so many other alternatives paying £15 for just a weekend subscription makes no sense, which is annoying as I live within a 10/15 minute walk of the Maidstone’s David Lloyd.

Didn’t vote.

Fair do's... the cheapest full membership near me for full pool & gym is £34.50 (who adds the 50p?), but that is at a Leisure Centre the same distance away from me as the David Lloyd, but I'm surrounded by a 100 screaming kids at the Leisure Centre (while swimming).

I know David Lloyd is a bit of a posers gym, but if costs me less than a leisure centre for using it the same amount...

Thanks... I was starting to think no one was going to vote it hot. If I'd posted a deal about Mars bars for a quarter of the price, people would be clambering over themselves to vote it hot .. and I am far from a fitness freak.

Voted hot - Got a gym at work, but was also looking for a one that I could use for the weekends.

try getting out of their membership when your subscription is "supposed to expire" Good luck with that! they tell you to give one months notice, turned out to be 5 months extra i had to pay.....never ever will i go to this gym again, p.s if you dont pay the extra months they add on they add on huge charges!!!!

Ah yes the famous month to month membership, just do a google search on #david Lloyds gym membership and you will see plenty of people advising you not to do it.....

One post really would have been sufficent. In the situations you have detailed I really feel that it is the individuals fault, not David Lloyds... They clearly state in the T&Cs that they need to obtain a receipt, the fact that these people clearly didn't read their terms should be a reason to exploit them. Lesson learnt, read the damn contract before signing.

This membership only has a one month cancellation period (send recorded delivery/email and provide a written letter to the receptionist and get a confirmation of receipt before the last direct debit and then cancel it, sorted.)

Not available in Sidcup!

Hot from me. David Lloyd is second only to Esporta.

Try Pure Gym £16.99 a month 24/7 access, no contract. Lastest Matrix Equipment.

Looks good for the money mate.

Good idea especially if they roll this out across the country.

Also The Gym Group, which is the same setup as Pure Gym and a little cheaper. Either of these two might work out for you depending upon your location. Both offer day memberships if you would want to try before you buy and The Gym Group has an open weekend every couple of months or so where the daily membership is waived.

Otherwise, for those who want to swim and attend yoga classes at weekend, the £15 at DL isn't too shabby.

My point is i did the one month cancellation according to their terms and conditions and was still stuck having to pay extra months....anyway...i will leave you to find out for yourself, i was trying to warn you but you obviously disregarded that fact and believe they stick to what they tell you upon sign up, p.s recorded delivery never gets signed for there.....try it and see.....and good luck!

better idea, dont join the gym just walk or ride a bike there then turn round and go home, exercise done! i used to peddle past my gym on the 6 mile round trip looking in the window at all the fat pie munchers and think hmmmm bet they are warm in there (was in winter) ;-)

My nearest gym is the local leisure centre, you get free weights and machines, latest state of the art cardio machines, swimming and various classes such as boxercise etc all for free, you don't have to pay a single penny, although sauna might knock you back about 3 quid, but I've used that aswell on ocassions without paying and its very rare a member of staff will come and check.

can I ask how you get it for free? and what the location is? as I've never been to a Leisure Centre that I didn't have to pay anything for.

OK, just had a call back from the Gym I was interested in. They told me that despite being listed as one of the gyms in the offer, they arent.

As soon as I told him I wasn't willing to pay more than £15 a month, he just gave up trying to sell the place and service. (_;)
