Does anyone here use Gymbox ?

Going to start using the weights and cardio equipment before I get in the office ...

Not as much as I should. Infact, I might be willing to sell you my contract but it is specific to the Westfield gymbox if thats any good for you? Its 58 a month - a lot less than other contracts as I signed up before they opened (so you wont be signed to 12 moths either). I just dont get the time to train and my money is being wasted. For MMA I recommend you have access to the other outloets (Bank and Holborn) as Bank has a full cage I believe.

The weight facilities are bloody good, lots of free weights and dedicated dead lift areas etc, lots of kettlebells etc, lots of high calibre machines ....

And you get to train with Jess Liaudin, Ash Grimshaw and many others but Westfield is currently mainly beginers during the week

Yep me,

I use it for Weights/Cardio at lunch, then train my grappling/MMA at my actual club in the evenings. The facilities are awesome, although it get's really busy around lunch or immediately after work.

One thing to note is they won't let you use the cage or the ring unless there is a class on, regardless of your level. There are regular decent level MMA and Grappling classes there, so if for any reason you cant train at your usual spot you can use those also.

If you pay the normal rate you can use any of the gyms, if you pay a corporate discount you can only choose one (I opted to pay the full wack as I'm halfway between Bank and Holborn).

I like it for standard fitness, but it's no substitute for an MMA/Grappling team.

Hope thats useful

Cheers

cheers Ben, thats my thoughts on it.. i just need weights and fitness and its in the middle between my station and my building. I can do 4 to 5 sessions in the week then visit my club in the evening.

Saying that they do have Errol Christie doing PT so that might be good. I also asked who the BJJ guy was and they said "Eduardo .... " that was it

I believe the BJJ is taught by Eduardo Goncalve, who I'm pretty sure is a Carlson Gracie Team Black Belt.

I use the Holborn branch. Usually do weights and cardio during lunch and MMA with Ash. The facilities are great and you get plenty for your money...

i was a founding member when i lived in London. It was amazing then. Always never busy. All brand spanking new. In the evenings on a monday there was a lap dancing class and you watched (mostly) fit birds slide down a pole (unfortunate tits covered) whilst you are on a tread mill.

They had a DJ playing some good music and had rocky or fight club on a movie screen.

Better that fitness first over here

bateman how much do you pay a month ?

Bateman
27-01-2011, 10:20 AM
I pay 70 a month , but I told the guy to lose the sign up fee because I dont want boxing gloves, I dont want the rest of the crap and I want to pay monthly rather than a contract... PM me if you want the guys name.

I only use it in the mornings before work as I am at my BJJ club in the evening and I train a few Boxers which I explained to the guy so the classes are of no interest to me.

Just reading the name of the classes makes angry!! Hip Hop Bootcamp? Tour De Westfield? Thug Workout??? FFS! They shouldn't let marketing fuckwits anywhere near gyms.

I can't read those classes. Do any of them say BJJ, Boxing or Muay Thai?

I used to use the Covent Garden one when I worked in Soho a couple of years ago. Absolutely first rate facilities. I was paying 68 a month and got all classes free. Used the place daily but only ever really consistantly took the Friday night boxing class when I was trying to save money by not going out. Only 2-3 of the usual guys in there on Friday nights so was a good little class. Classes on the other nights tended to get a little packed. Also they used to let me and my cousin use the ring when there wasn't a class or private session on if we popped in before the lunch time rush. I'm not sure of the official policy on it but the personal trainers were OK with it and always happy to have a chat about anything boxing related.

LOL. Some look as dumb as the name but some are also ridiculous conditioning/workouts with kettlebells, circuits, sandbags, bag work etc etc

i signed up so I could get a 5 day a week work out before work... wasnt interested in the classes.
Saying that going to see if i can get a few 1 to 1's with Eduard , also been chatting to Errol Christie a few times, he is one cool guy.

the weights Gym is warm, nice and full of hammer strength gear , then the cardio machines, well , loads of them.. spot on showering and changing facilities with a sauna. first class place...

works out at 3.20 a session , my local leaisure center charges between 6 and 9 a session...
