Newly moved into the area and struggling to settle upon a gym. Firstly WOW they're all expensive round here and secondly I'm torn between Fitness first cottons and 37degrees.
I've read on some forums that 37degrees' staff/management can be a bit abrasive and occasionally bullying. Not really what I'm after for £80 odd a month ha!
So can anyone who goes there give me some insight?
I'm a member at Fitness4Less - £15 a month, no contract. It is quite busy at peak times, but is pretty big and well equipped if you don't mind going hunting for the correct weights. It seems that users of budget gyms aren't able to put things back when they're finished with them.
There's a Fitness First Platinum gym in London Bridge Hotel (behind London Bridge, next to the Shard) which is cheaper than Cottons (I'm paying £57 a month, but that's because I'm only on a 4 month contract. It's cheaper for a 12 month contract.) It's quite small and can get pretty busy between 6pm and 7pm, but I've found the staff quite pleasant and helpful and the gym fits its purpose for me!
