Smart gym in a pretty location. The facilities here are fairly decent, the gym is clean and the staff are helpful. The workout facilities are in good condition but as with other Nuffield's there only seems to be one set of everything. i.e. Only one barbell rack, only one bench press area etc which is a little annoying if you're trying to follow a workout programme. Ive noticed in this gym that people don't put the weights away and often leave equipment laying on n the floor looking as though it's still being used, which is very annoying. The phone signal isn't great. There's supposed to be free wifi but in true British style, rather than just being given a password and off you go, you have to sign up and go through a third party system that doesn't really work.
Gave it 3 stars as it doesn’t get overcrowded during the week apart from 5 - 8 pm and early morning and the swimming pool and steam room are very good. The gym itself is rather small and the cardio equipment is very dated. The weights are is just about adequate. On occasion the music can be way too load which doesn’t help if you’re not into dance music. I can hear it even though I have my headphones on full blast. Overall I’d say the gym has gone downhill since it became a Nuffield and if you are paying full price you’re better off paying a little more and joining the much better David Lloyd which is very close.

The best gym ever! Best receptionists, the best trainers and the best everything! Very clean, and it feels like one big family! Kirsty’s customer service is phenomenal! Grab a protein shake, coffee or smoothie! I love this place!!! Big hugs for welcoming me to this gym for the last 3 years!
Lovely boutique gym in North London. The staff are very friendly and helpful if you have any question (Kirsty on reception is great! :) The equipment is modern and clean. The gym itself has a friendly atmosphere and it never gets so busy that nothing is free. Would highly recommend to those looking for a non-chain gym with a bit of personality!

This is a family oriented gym, I like it because there is a lot to do for a person of any age and interest, from different sports clubs to kids activities, from tennis and swimming lessons to jazz evenings and BBQ days. The staff is very friendly and caring. The restaurant has a good variety of healthy food and there is a good small bar. The club is looked after well, always very clean and updated on a regular basis.
Gym is great with high spec facilities. Swimming is also excellent but hygiene could be improved. Tennis is incredibly over subscribed and unless you book way in advance you will never be able to get a court. My biggest gripe is the extortionate membership costs which don't even include free towels. If it wasn't on my doorstep I'd much rather go to Bushey which is quieter and a little cheaper.
