What our members say

“I joined in January, three months after undergoing hip replacement surgery. From my initial visit to the present day, I have been impressed by the facilities as well as the friendly welcome by every member of staff. For the first time in my life, I look forward to exercising rather than seeing it as a necessary evil.
I tend to use the ladies’ gym and pool but will look at joining some of the classes in the next few weeks. I would particularly like to single out Lizzie who keeps the ladies’ changing room spotless as well as greeting every lady with a cheerful ‘hello’. The future looks promising.”

“Thoroughly enjoying my visits to the Waterside. Since becoming a member I have participated in the PT scheme and had a couple of lively sessions with Azhar – a really encouraging and friendly girl, I recommend doing this just so you know how to use the machines properly if nothing else. The gym is always clean and machines in good order, staff friendly and helpful. The classes I’ve been to have been popular and well organised.  (online booking / cancellation system works very well). One of my favourites was a ‘Low & Tone’ with Josie as the instructor…. All in all , joining was a positive step in my determination to improve my personal fitness.”

“I have only been a member of the club since the start of this year and have only ever used public leisure facilities prior to joining this club. I have been impressed by the helpfulness of staff both on reception and throughout the club. The standard of cleanliness in changing rooms, pool and sauna etc is also impressive. I am mainly using the club for swimming and sauna and the reason I joined the club is that these amenities in my local public leisure centre were nearly always too crowded. At the moment I am not finding this to be true in this club and am able to enjoy a reasonably uncrowded pool and sauna.”

“I have nearly completed my third month as a member at Waterside Leisure club. I joined the club determined to lose weight. I have managed to lose about 6kg so far which is great.  I’m really happy with the membership as I really enjoy it. I’ve got goals to achieve and then motivation to beat the following time. The wellness app monitors all the activities and also the progress of my weight loss journey. I definitely take advantage of the 24hr gym (including the ladies only gym-the new equipment is great as it can be tracked on the wellness app). I’m able to come at 5am before work or 10pm after work. My work is not a 9-5 job so the flexibility is great. Also I’ve made good use of the extended hours of the thermal suite. Hope they remain open the longer hours. Overall I am very pleased with my membership.”
