SE1guy is accurate here - I joined Fitness First in May 2014 having been told the whole gym was being refubished in June 2014 and made it clear I was only joining due to the refurbishment as what they currently had did not meet my needs for weight training. The refurbishment apparently included a doubling in size of weights equipment and area, expansion of cardio area and completely new changing rooms and showers. Come end of June I asked reception what was happening with the refurbishment - they said it has been postponed and this keeps happening every month. I
I demanded to cancel based on being mislead but Fitness First denied I was told the refurbishment was happening in June! They have now tried to lock me into the 12 month contract and I am currently exploring options to take them on. Potential members be warned, do NOT listen to the hpe about the refurbishment and note the gym in it's current state is tatty, the changing rooms and showers are horrible and they do not have adequate resitance machines and benches in the weights area. The cardio area is not very big. This is NOT worth what they currently charge (£80 if you do not have good corporate deals).
