AMAZING place. One of the best gyms I have ever been to without a doubt. Everyone working there is really friendly and willing to help you whenever you need a hand with any of the equipment or just anything in general. The indoor pools are great as well as the biggest indoor jacuzzi I have ever seen. The restaurant is so convenient after working out. Being an avid tennis player, the tennis courts are a big plus for me. Couldn’t ask for better, more experienced coaches and lots of courts always available. HIGHLY recommend this club!
This is my home club and is one of the best gyms I've been a member of, the floor area of the gym is massive and there is a good balance between cardio equipment and free weights and other strength equipment. The pool and sauna area is also great, as is the cafe area where you can sit and watch sport
I totally agree with West12 - I have hated other gyms I’ve been a member of, but I actually like this one - nothing more to add except that I’ve been a member here for a while and their recent refurb and upgrade of equipment has made them even better.
And their kids facilities are great. Both creche and classes.
Current favourite new toy there is the Trixter Xdream videogame cycle - you have a videogame screen in front of you, and you race against computer generated competitors or real people. Resistance decreases and increases according to gradient, terrain and gears.
I should be there now, really, racing against the machine - instead of slumped here, writing about all the food I’ve been eating.
This Virgin Active (technically 'West London’, which is the posh name for 'between Shepherd’s Bush and Acton’) is absolutely brilliant! I’ve been a member for six months now and I’m as happy as I was on day one.
The health club is hoooooge - there are tennis courts, kids club, two studios, 22m pool, spa with a gigantic hydrobath, sauna, sanarium, steam and igloo, Heaven V beauty bit, cafe, and the gym, which is brilliantly equipped. There’s a huge amount of cardio stuff along pleasingly with all the most modern weights and resistance equipment - with two versions of most resistance machines, so you don’t have to wait too long for anything.
Virgin are also quite big on 'exercise innovations’ (which the less kind might call gimmicks) but there’s no less than eight powerplate machines, a TRX thing (presumably to hang yourself on - it looks very odd to me), some wierd bike things attached to a videogame simulator, as well as boxing bits.
It’s got a really good, unthreatening atmosphere, nice changing rooms, generally good staff and it’s very clean. I really would rate it very highly - it’s one of the best Virgin gyms in London, and I reckon they’re the nicest of the bunch by quite some way.
