Colchester Retail Park gym reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good gym Love the gym itself but continuous pluming problems means the womens tiets are closed leaving one toliet for up to 140 people at a time

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too hot! It’s usually a bit too warm but seemed far too hot tonight. I had only just started running and felt like the heat was unbearable. The changing rooms are also too hot. The toilets are constantly blocked and even the disabled one had also become blocked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time visiting. Was very busy which isn’t a problem and expected. Frustrating when people “reserve” machines with phones etc while they’re the other side of the gym

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Class cancelled Finally started the gym today and thought what a better way then do a class. I was the only one who had booked on for the class and the PT apologised and said that management does not allow her to run the class if there is only one person attending as it is then classed as a PT session. Very disappointed as I do not agree, a PT session is specifically tailored to the person training where we could still have done the class as it would have been generic exercises.
