    Hi Guys

    Just wondering if anyone woulld be able to give me an insight into the level of weight training facilities available at the University Gym.

    When I was taken around on the open day I was told the heaviest dumbbells available were 25kg, which must surely be too low?

    Thanks

    "afaik" = "as far as I know"

    On uni park max dumbell is 50K with a big range from there down. BUT I stress the uni gym is ****! Far too small and not enough equiptment to get want you want. I am deffinatly going with a different gym next year.

    Though if you get in to the first team of an AU team you get use (with bronze sports membership) of the strngth and conditioning room. Which (from what I have seen from it) looks really nice and no one ever uses it.
