Used the gym a few times and thought it was well stocked. The place itself is a good place that holds many events and classes. I'll definitely be signing up for a membership come the Summer.

The gym and pool are both super. Sauna and jacuzzi and steam room top class also. Definitely worth a visit if you want to keep fit without a membership. Great staff also.
