Default Down the Gym Then .....

So I decided that I want to join a Gym and get fit.

Before you suggest it, I hate Fitness First (Couldn't think of anywhere worse) I want a smaller Gym that doesn't charge loads, not a massive place like that where everyone is packed in like sardines.

I was using my mates Gym on the palm but they have started with the swipe cards so can't get in anymore.

I don't need a big Gym, just cardio and free weights will do, plus I am a single male so couple only Gyms like Jebil Ali Club are not an option.

Any ideas would be helpful.

You could try Hayya - http://www.hayya.com . You dont have to be a member for the classes but not sure about for gym access. Prices for single and family membership are on the website and are in a couple of locations, The Lakes being one of them.

I started body pump classes a couple of weeks ago.

Sounds good, only lists annual fees though, I want to pay monthly if possible?

Still seems a bit steep to me, something more basic would be ok.

I am in The Gardens aswell so The Lakes isnt too far away.

Will ask when I go to the gym on Monday if they do anything other than annual fee.

Didnt realise JAC was not doing singles membership anymore

No fun in that if you're on the ground floor.... unless there are some nice females below.

Great thing is, with Gym in the title; we're safe from MH, MM, MD, BC, SC an all the rest if the anti-men brigade...they will never look at this thread.

And if they do...it wos your fault....
