"Had a nice little try at this gym yesterday! Helpful and friendly staff, lots of kit for me to play with and well organised and clean in both the gym and the changing areas. Food, supplements, PT's and a cafe area all added to the simple but well equipped little gem. If I lived closer I'd consider changing gyms, but will definitely try the powerlifting and strongman training sessions!" Charlie

"Six months into a year's contract and I've dropped a lot of weight and smashed goals along the way. The staff are helpful and not condescending and the members are the same. Everyone I've asked for advice has given it and some have then stuck around to spot me which is always a good point. Most importantly the music is mainly rock!!!!" Kyle
