    Afternoon all,

    Unfortunately the only gyms near me for a few months are David Lloyd and an LA Fitness.

    I have the prices for LA Fitness but David Lloyd haven't emailed me back, can anyone give me and idea of prices and can you pay as you go instead of memebership? What lengths of membership can you get?

    Cheers

    I bet it will be VERY expensive.

    Perhaps you can develop an alternative to going to the gym

    Yeh I need to go to the gym to do weights sadly. And the pool will be a bonus. Oh well.... More expensive than LA Fitness?? I thought DL would be as it's kind of posh!

    if you have space at home, consider buying some weights. A year of gym membership would buy a really good set up at home.

    I would but I'm not living in my house and have zilcho room for weights unfortunately. Had already considered that as it would be more benficial in the long run to have my own. Sadly not feasible right now

    i go to David Lloyd

    It cost me about £160/180 for 3 months at a discounted rate cos i got a "couple" membership with my brother :s: so it worked out around £180 each for the summer back from uni.

    def worth it though. fab equipment! and i go most days usually so def make good use of the membership the outdoor pools are amazing

    bearing in mind gym instructors get all the free use of everything so you dont have to pay the £180 or whatever!

    seems a pretty good deal to me.

    InaSpin - if your looking for a cheeper alternative maybe try the council owned gyms - many are in sports centres/pools/community centres and quite often people just don't know the facilites are there. They usually have decent sports equipment - although the pay off is the changing areas and such aren't as fancy.

    OR - I know your not far from a station - most have a rule for local people being able to access the gym - I can't remember the exact critera but might be worth having a look into.

    i second the council run gyms - sadly the ones i go to doesnt have the pool or any luxuries.

    paying £50 a month for the gym is only worth it if you really use it a lot - 2-3 visits a week doesnt quite it it IMO unless you spend a LOT of time there (or you are laoded)

    Yeah I'm not sure on the rules, I need to find out. I'm quite a long way from Council gyms, I did the research and the price in petrol makes it a lot more expensive.
