Hey, Ive been accepted to study at UEA in september 2015 for nursing and I was wondering is this the gym? I use total fitness 4-5 times a week currently where i live in manchester to do weight lifting, is there a normal type free weight gym here? Would I need to purchase the 300 a year membership card to use this?

Not interested in clubs or activities or anything just want to use the weights section (if they have one) thanks for any help!

Hi - it's a big fitness centre with a swimming pool, climbing wall, various sports halls and athletics tracks and of course a gym. It does have a special weights room as well. There's a student membership offer or you can pay to go in each time - definitely don't get the 300 a year membership!

You can PAYG, but if you're using it 4-5 times a week, at £3 (off-peak), for 38 weeks of your halls contract (I know the Nursing contract is longer) that'll be £570, so the student membership in this case is a lot cheaper! I think PAYG only works out cheaper if you use it less than 3 times a week. But I'd definitely suggest trying it out first PAYG to see if they have all the equipment you want before you buy the annual membership.

There is a whole free weights section, which was refitted and expanded last year...except that's as far as I can describe it because that's the only equipment I don't use

Okay, the gym is £150 per year for students (bargain), that allows you to go all hours on weekends and from 6:30am-4pm then 8:30-10pm on week days. There are two squat racks with standard 20kg barbells, plenty of plates to put on them, each squat rack has a deadlift platform. There's a flat bench press and an incline bench press each with their own bar. A smith machine (lol), 4 standard benches for the many dumbells ranging from 2kg to 40kg. There's a bicep isolation bench (I dont know what it's actually called), and a hyperextension table. In total there's 3 cable cross stations each with 2 cables, and 1 with one cable. there's also a crossfit area with all the stupid dynamic **** like a trampoline that you bounce your medicine balls off. There's also an entire resistance training machine area with pretty much everything you need including an assisted pull up/dip machine.

It is a really good gym for beginners, but you need to learn to be confident about working around a lot of other people, especially at the start of the year as almost everyone wants to reinvent themselves and join the gym. It all settles down after a couple of months though

Does the discounted student membership include entry to the swimming pool as well as the gym?
