H used to be in the new JJB one and liked it as it had the swimming pool etc as a lot don't. Think he had a deal 26 off peak or 36 peak.

Though check the contract as they can be tricky to get out off if you don't use it and want to cancel.

check out fitspace gym on the boucher rd belfast
its only 16 per month peak think there slogan is or should be - the half price gym
it use to be fitness first of which i was a member, very spacious gym, i sampled fit space and they have simply cut the costs, theres no classes but lots of weights and equipment, they took out the sauna as well so if your just looking a good basic gym thats cheap you wont find better.

Might be worth looking at the Queens PEC either - £37 per month for all inclusive membership, less if you're a graduate of QUB. Plenty of classes in term time which are mostly included in the membership fee. Facilities are a lot better since they opened the extension a couple of years ago.

Cool Fitspace

Folks

I've been around the Belfast Gym Circuit for the last few years. And I've finally found the best gym in Belfast - Fitspace on the Boucher Road. (I've tried most of them)

It costs me 10 per month

Its got none of those - "look at me" personal trainers or rip off extras I found everywhere else which really get to me. Its just a through and through gym, plenty of cardio equipment and an excellent weights room.

Its not the 'Ritz' of gyms but for the price of a fitness magazine and a shake its well worth a try...

Anyone know where I can pick up some of those split toe trainers?

We really are a suspicious lot, aren't we? In this case, it's the second time a new poster has popped on and posted two posts about Fitspace, hmmmmm, I smell a rat!

Default Connswater

Hey, fitness first at connswater is great!

30pm but I think you'd get a better deal now, as far as I know there is no admin fee at the minute and you're only tied into the contract for 1 month (unlike most other places which are 12 month).

It's nothing fancy, but the do loads of classes - spinning, body pump, body attack etc and there's also a sauna and steam room too!

I joined FF at Connswater two weekends ago. Got it for 30 a month on a no contract deal. No joining fee, either. Also got 3 personal trainer sessions and a pile of vouchers for shakes, drinks, protein bars, etc. Is very good.

Yeah I seem to hear everybody ranting & raving about JJB in recent times, great prices and state-of-the-art gym facilities.

Keep meaning to take a nosey, as i'm currently with Fitness First paying similar prices for a lesser service by the sounds of things.
