I should have read the reviews before joining this gym. I signed up in September last year, as it is close to my flat. At first glance, it looked good and well equipped. Though it is not big, it has a swimming pool, a sauna...More

The gym is quint, adequate and has a lot to offer but the environment is slightly dated and could certainly use better ventilation or air conditioning. That beings said, not bad for the price compared to other central London gyms

Good points - the staff are great, friendly and polite. And the regulars are chatty - there's not too much posing. I joined because it's cheap and convenient location for me, and it's rarely too busy. So I keep going. The only negative (and this...More

It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
