    really big. LA fitness is what its called. all kinds of people go.
    i used to go to LA Fitness last year. i prefer it actually because the people that go are more in my age group.

    I have heard of La fitness. I think that's where models train.

    It's massive.
    It's more like a country club really...
    There is not a specific group of people that go. Although there are a lot of high end cars in the car park.

    Holmes Place - it's in the National Badminton club, thus lots of young fit men gyming-it :heart: There's a small gym and a big gym and usually the women tend to like the small one and the men the big one. :lol:

    I just went to the virtual tour on that life time fitness one - first thing I clicked was the child care services?!!

    ANYWAY mines the uni gym, small and full of students. I find the weights room intimidating though cause loads of beefy guys lollop on the machines and I feel really mincy setting it to a diddy weight - feel like I'm being watched and it spooks me!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Mine is fairly small, with weights room, cv room, a very small pool and some other stuff that I don't use.

    But it's next door to work and they pay for it now so ho-hum.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I train at home so I can avoid the masses, I don't want to train with the meat heads, the post christmas trainers, and the other general idiots that I find when I do visit gyms.

    Although I do do boxercise in the local leisure centre
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Boxercise is awesome! :yes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I go to a ladies only gym. There's not much choice where I live, only my one and a Fitness First.

    The gym part is quite crap, they play the radio really quietly and there is no TV. There are toning tables. I usually just go to the classes now as the gym is a bit boring. There's a sauna, and free internet access.

    I'd like to join a posh gym when my membership expires but I would have to travel quite a bit further.
