    Gym membership at Wokingham UK? 12th Sep 17 at 12:41 PM
    Hi All

    I've recently moved to Wokingham, and I decided to venture and go to a gym !

    The gym I want to go to is in Reading UK, but they told me the session I want is on Saturday but it is booked by Wokingham Council and the price with a membership is 1 pound, but it will be 4.40 pounds without a membership with Wokingham (that is, if I directly book with the gym).

    So googling around, I failed to find a page to learn more about memberships in Wokingham and prices (because it may turn out that the membership is more expensive than simple pay as you go).
    A few times I found myself redirected to this site, and I don't know if it belongs to Wokingham council because it doesn't say: 1life co uk

    My questions are:

    (1) Where can I find out more information about Wokingham membership fees?
    (2) How do I register for a Wokingham membership? Do I just choose any gym in Wokingham and I will automatically get a Wokingham membership?
    (3) If I register on the above 1life website, will I be getting a Wokingham membership?

    Sorry if these are some obvious gym related questions, first time things look more puzzling than they really are!

    I think Wokingham farm out their leisure services to 1life. You would need to read the T&Cs to see what membership covered as some gyms have pools and some don't so you must be sure of what you are getting.
    If you only want to do that one session then it is unlikley that it is worth buying the membership if you can PAYG - but if you might fancy a swim or some other activities it might tip the balance.
    If you are thinking about Loddon Valley then that falls under Wokingham council not Reading.

    Have you considered Bracknell Leisure Centre? I used their gym for a while post-op and it seemed very well set up, there were lots of instructors there, a lovely pool and other facilities. I believe they either have or are planning a big upgrade.
