    There's Westview and Fulwood. £15 for the year for students and you can go to either.

    The one before Aldi looked closed last time I went past, and there was a for sale (or to let) sign outside it. Not sure if it is still open.


    The £15 offer at Fulwood is only during the day. If you want to go in peak times its £15 a month (I think - Im not a gym person :p: !)

    Sounds quite good. For your £15 (plus £10.00 one off induction fee) you get to use both Fulwood and West View.

    Times are limited mid-week but you can use both centres all day over the weekend.

    There is a Virgin Active up at Capitol Centre, that's a bit of a trek though. Within walking distance there is a large gym (can't remember the name, but it is a big one) just by the flyover in front the of the Lidl.

    Does anyone know the prices for Virgin Active gym in Capitol Centre? Their website doesn't tell anything, and they don't even give a contact email to ask about it. They offer only to book a club visit, but if it's going to be too expensive for me, why would I even bother going there? Some smart thinking their are doing there, huh?.. So, does anyone know how much does it cost?

    And how far away is it from campus, is it like a walking distance?

    And also, what about Ironman BodyBuilding Centre? Has anyone been to that one?

    Cheers guys!
