I’m so glad to have been introduced to this gym by this lovely little South American girl that works there. I got a one day free pass to try out and was shown around the place. It’s clean with a large swimming pool, sauna and steam room spa facilities! The gym is well equipped and there’s a lot of workout support personalised to individual needs. Least to mention unlimited fitness classes I can attend at time that suits me! I’m now a very happy member! Highly recommended!
Visited Nuffield with a day pass ('pay as u gym' app - £13). When I arrived, the process was quick and easy, I merely gave my code and I was sent through, however, it cost me an extra £6 in the process as I didn't have a lock (my fault I know). The gym is extremely small, perhaps a 1/4 of the size of Fitness First, Liverpool St Station, which is in its own right known to be a smaller sized gym. The free weights section has everything you'd desire and so to does the machine weights area. However, if you're like me and you like your space to skip or indeed lift weights, then you're better off elsewhere. In terms of price, I believe that a monthly contract is around £70 - £80. I believe this pricing is of course mainly for the brand name and the swimming pool. If you like swimming as I do, then obviously it's a great addition. However, for the price per month, the gym isn't worth it. You're better off becoming a member of the multitude of Fitness Firsts scattered around Shoreditch/Liverpool Street or if you're desperate for the pool, signing up to Virgin Active Broadgate. Would have been 4 stars if the price was £50! Apologies for waffling on, just like to give my opinion! PS, this may have just been my experience but all members that were present on the day seemed incredibly rude with no social aspect to the gym whatsoever. Opened the door for a couple of members with no response. If you're new to the gym it may perhaps be an intimidating atmosphere.
