Small gym.

Quite small, don't like the fact that it's quite expensive. It's suppose to be cheap for students, might aswell get a membership elsewhere. Boxing bag needed.

I attended this gym for a long time, its not cheap and gradually got busier and busier until there were often 2 people waiting to use a piece of equipment....not everyone cleans their sweat off the piece of apparatus they've just used and the aircon could be better. It seemed like the uni kept enrolling more and more people into... More

I have a membership here only because it is the closest gym to where I live. I have been a member for almost two years now and to this day after many times asking they still lack proper cleaning agent and towels to wipe machines down. I have asked if there are towels for one of the gym areas only... More

Have a year long membership here, really good value for money if you use it regularly. The classes are great and all of the facilities are really well kept.

went here a few years ago. Wonderful facilities and very helpful and understanding staff. Easy place to get to just get on the number 1 or 2 city bus and it takes you to the entrance.

I play volleyball periodically with some workmates, and RGU has proven to be a great venue for this. The equipment is in good condition, and staff are great at getting it set up in a relatively timely fashion, even at busy times. Staff at the front desk are always friendly and helpful. I have a 'pay as you go' membership... More

Good place to go if you are visiting town or here for a short time and want some exercise classes, as you can pay for classes one at a time, likewise the pool but not gym as you need and induction. They allow too many people into the classes on a busy day, and you really need to know what... More
