Bristol Barrow Road member reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I hate the music It is good place for the price, just I don't understand why the music is too loud. Sorry but some days the music is horrible. Showers could be cleaner

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sort out the aircon Very recently signed up and rate the classes. Having said that, I have done a few purecycle classes recently and there's no aircon in the room - it's v. hot and stuffy. The rest of the gym normally seems cool, so wondering why there are no aircon vents in the purecycle section. If I'd wanted to have a sauna, that would have been OK...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym, but a bit too warm It's a great gym with a wide range of classes at all times of the day and easy to get too. Really value having a women's only corner. My only grip is how hot it is - it would be good to have stronger air con. Apart from that, all good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym Been a member for 6 months, try to go on the mornings and it's never crowded. Good area for woman only and overall a great gym

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ladies only area small and needs more equipment The main reason for joining was the Ladies only area for extra privacy. Male PT often come into the area and some hang about longer than they need to. Why a man goes into the female changing area is also rather odd and makes it uncomfortable for those inside. The equipment in the ladies area is extremely limited. Mainly focused on cardio with a few machines. The free weights are also often missing and PT often take them from the ladies area into the main gym which is unfair as there are ample weights outside. It is really annoying. I’ve requested that new equipment or machines are rotated but this has been denied. A good multi station weight machine would add extra value to this area. Positives, it’s 24hrs and free parking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a good gym I've been a member for over a year and thepersoanl trainers have been really friendly and helpful, they made sure I carried out exercises correctly. The members are also very polite, the only thing that should be improved is the music used in the gym, it's not motivational enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym reasonably pticed I’ve been a member for a year now being a shift worker means I can make it any time and the classes are frequent and spaced out over morning lunch and evening so can always make at least 2 or 3 a week
