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

Exactly same as other reviewer. One months notice given and paid. They claim notice had not been given and appointed debt collected to pursue a further month. If you leave, insist that they confirm in writing to you, on-the-spot and take no excuses. If you...More

I used the gym as a hotel guest (from the Imperial on Russell Sq). The guy on reception was really nice and got me signed in. I used some of the cardio gear and then did free weights. The gym is a little smaller than...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

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance

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

tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
