I know the area really well, as I was at the Uni there once upon a time.
You can join the gym in the Uni. They have a free weights room which is pretty well stocked as well as another room that is cardio equipment and machines. The Uni has a strong sports background so the facilities are pretty damn good. Theres also another weights area which is alongside the indoor athletics track. You tend to see a lot of big guys training there (think rugby players, field athletes etc.)
It should suit your needs as they get a lot of professional athletes and sports teams out there training. I always use to see people like Mark lewis francis, Linford Christies etc training out there.
If you want a commercial gym, then there is a Virgin active and a fitness first in the town centre. Not been inside either, but these gyms don’t tend to vary much. The plus with these is you could get a multi gym membership so you could train in the city gyms, or the ones in Uxbridge if you felt like it.
If you need anymore info just ask, though I’ve no idea why I’m helping a blue nose! ;p[/quote]
Sorry OP, this. I have heard Genesis is great, though I think you can just turn up and pay per session so maybe use them every now and then, you’ll find it easier to fit you gym round your work I think.[/quote]
Yeah, you can. 5 squids, bargain in my book
EDIT: Uhh, they changed their casual price. Its now 7pounds. This may mean they’ve also changed their membership prices as well, and the website is out of date.
