Regular gym. Lots of weights, few machines. Lovely studios. Decent prices. It's a shame the management don't care about maintaining equipment. Breakdowns are frequent on the old 2nd hand equipment and things stay broken for weeks on end. Staff are friendly and on hand when you need them.
It is a very good gym, with some decent area for weights, cardio and classes. It also offers a big changing rooms and lockers. The staff was very friendly and always willing to help. Plus points to the staff!

First time visiting, everything is brilliant except one small aspect...hygiene! I brought my family here today around 3pm and I’m guessing this time is not the best for using the swimming facilities if you are expecting any hygiene levels to be met. I kid you not, the smell dotted around the swimming changing area stunk of urine. Now I understand this can occur in swimming areas but when I’m walking bare foot on the floor and changing my family I don’t expect to be worried on what I may be stepping in. I want to be smelling bleach not pee! Is there not a mid day clean down? It’s really off putting. Secondly, and this screams to me that who ever is cleaning...is not cleaning sufficiently, when it came to place my baby on a pull down changer there was dry poo flakes in the corners. I just feel like is it a case of out of site out of mind? This could do with a wipe down also rather than coming down with a tummy bug. I don’t expect much...but hygiene in a swimming facility other than just the pool is a big big must!!
Great facility for sport in York, especially for students. There are a lot of classes daily and prices and deals are good. In addition there are also a pool and other gym studios. It is pretty far from the uni but the bus between the two campus is free.

Very good club. Lovely pool, spa, sauna and steam room. Also plenty of machines in the gym with trainers on hand should you need help.
Great staff, facilities, cafe. Cannot fault it, and there student deal is very reasonable, worth pay an extra £15 or so than the rubbish uni gyms on campus.
