The gym is beautiful, and booking classes is a very good feature. It helps to stay disciplined and keep a place in a hot class. I loved the spa on very stressed days. Water bed is really nice and top stream can massage sore shoulders. Cycle class by Lara is the most intensive cardio workout you can do in this gym. However staff ruined it. Their personal trainers are intimidating and rude. They interrupted me every time when I start doing my circuit excusing themselves it was health & safety issues. As you can read in other reviews, including not recommended, I was not the first encountered this problem. The gym client service Manager prefers people to quit rather trying to look into the issues and resolving them without losing clients. The manager even sent me quit forms upfront seeing me as pain in the a$$. Even though functional exercise area looks good you will not be able to use it simply because they put too many classes in the zone and it's very hard to find a space for yourself. They order not to bring your own equipment but there is no enough TRX - again classes and PT hog them most They will not let you exercise your way. It will always be 'health & safety' bullshit. Finally didn't let me to keep my bag on the floor near the wall for ONCE. Because of the RULES. So I have to handle my towel, water bottle my notepad, pen, player across the floor. Seriously ?! What about sand bags for tabata intervals? Okay! After this rude intimidation, I put everything in the locker .. And it broke.. I could not get my bag out after 20 attempts.. Instead of working out, I spent an hour to keep that personal trainer happy. He wrote a fantastic review for Virgin Active by the way. Yelp put his review above truthy ones. This person would better look at his clients at GRID class and correct their plank - most of them arch low back or round thoracic spine. This will lead to injury. Isn't real health & safety issue ? I seriously consider to quit this gym because it was third time when bored personal trainers find a reason to kick me out from the floor. Honestly I see this staff is sabotaging my effort to get healthy again. I would not recommend this gym to my worst enemy
I went there yesterday morning to sign up with my friend. We were walking around and the gym was empty in some parts, at the change of taking a photo of a strange looking machine, the tour guide would not let me. I asked to see the pool, i was asked to wear some strange bags on my shoes. I asked about opening times, the Guide did not give a good indication as she was running out of breath. To the negotiation stage of pricing it is $32.95 per week cancel anytime with notice given the sunday before direct debit. So it is quite expensive, but they have some nice looking facilities: Gym, Spa, Weights Room; Cardio; Boxing Room; and ALL the other stuff i would not use. But for goodness sake, why the heck am i being asked to pay $160.00 sign up fee. What happened to Virgin Active last week, when they told me if i sign up by Sunday they will waiver the sign up fee. When i prompted the Sales person, they would not budge, so i picked my self up and left. Richard Branson your gym will soon become like dick smith.
The BAD: Very light range of strength bags (sand bags), I could only find 15kg bags in the boxing studio. If there are more, they weren't visible on my last visit. Poor condition skipping ropes; I usually wouldn't complain about this, but I asked specifically when joining if they had good ropes and was reassured they did. They're very old and tangle easily. The steps between the mens changing room and the pool stink. They have the very dated pump and attack Les mills classes, but won't adopt the hugely popular GRIT classes. Zuu and Grid are good, but don't motivate/ruin you in the same way GRIT does. Only one soft plyo box, for box jumps, so if someone is using it you have to wait. This wouldn't be a problem if they had the adjustable steps, but they only have the old Reebok steps. No quick release adjustable bars. The GOOD: Friendly staff. There's a nifty body composition computer that measures your mass accurately. Classes are limited to a certain number, so they're never packed. They are also easily booked. A pool, spa and sauna. A climbing wall. Wifi internet access (for members). Areas to do your own circuits, if you're into that. Good cardio and weights equipment (apart from the points mentioned above). Good selection of pilates and yoga classes. Good location.
Good, but inferior in most ways (equipment, space, decor) than Fitness First 's Platinum Bond St gym
Excellent, classy, great staff and friendly trainers. Great up to date classes. Clean change rooms and lockers. Moved from New York and I can compare this gym to any of the top level gym in New York! Good job guys!!!
