    Hello

    I'd like to start going to the gym, but I have no idea really which places are both good and affordable. I was thinking of the The Gym - does anyone have any experiences of this one?

    Thanks!

    Are you at uni? Most have their own gyms which I imagine are cheaper than others. I think leisure centres should be quite cheap too.

    I'm basically planning on going to a gym near home for a bit for the holidays as my university gym only offers yearly memberships, which I'm going to get when I go back for the next academic year. My local leisure centre is unfortunately really expensive at £40 per month

    Aw. Well can you go without it for a few months? The weather's getting better, maybe you can go running or something? Hopefully someone will suggest something better

    What do you want out of a gym?

    (facility / equipment -wise)

    e.g. classes, pool, freeweights, resistance machines, cardio machines, etc.

    Cardio and resistance machines with free weights is all I think I'll need to begin with really The basics will do for now.

    Google "no frill gyms". They are usually really cheap and just focus on the basics :yep:

    From the above, I'd say 'The Gym' is a safe bet.
