It has a lot of equipment but lacks in vital basics. For example they have no water fountains and expect you to use the taps in the bathroom sinks that you can barely fit a bottle under, also the water tastes metallic.
The changing rooms and always ridiculously cold and wet with women in mopping up... Read more all the water because they have no drainage or heat in there. Also they don't like you using talc powder because they have to clean it up. (First gym I've ever been to where they've approached this as a problem.)
The music is repetative, often far too loud and is frankly just terrible. I heard the same awful dance song three times in an hour. Apparently it's policy that the music has to be horrible. It fills the room and there's no getting away from it.
They put up posters urging you to wipe down the machines with a towel after use, only they don't provide towels, you need to buy one from them. Which is pointed out on the poster.
There is a massive board that shows how many members they have banned a certain month. It never has had any numbers on it yet one of the cleaners approached my friend and threatened to ban him if he didn't put his phone away. This is ridiculous. They sell and encourage you to use Phone apps. They sell you an app that they then threaten to ban you for using.
These aren't the only things that are bothering me but it can't just be me that notices how hypocritical and negligent they are. I'd be surprised if any of these things were addressed. Very surprised. Show less
