The other gyms in the local vauxhall / stockwell area are either the cheap over crowded 24 hour ones (attracting cheap clientele) or a male only gym (next to a gay sauna and gay clubs). This gym is spacious , well equipped pleasant staff and has tv lounges and nice comfortable waiting areas . The free weights, machine weights are CV sections are good in my opinion and obviously they have squash courts. If you are looking for somewhere decent , well equipped, clean and with a touch of class to work out in the local area then this is the one i would recommend.
I visited this gym to attend a yoga class with some friends. Upon entering I found the staff to be friendly on reception.
There is a studio and squash courts on the ground floor with a lounge area and TV and another area with tables and chairs for eating and drinking.
On the next level are the changing rooms and another studio.
The changing areas are spacious with lockers, showers, a sauna and steam room and a lounger area.
The only thing they are lacking here is a swimming pool and jacuzzi. You can hire towels for a £1 and lockers are free.
The gym is located 5 mins bus ride away from Vauxhall tube / train station.
All in all a superb gym which had a real community social feel to it.
If you are serious about health & fitness the Southbank Club is a great place to hit your peak. The ground floor is specifically designed to hold the dreaded bleep test running track. There is a small free weight area on this floor to. The main weight resistance room is upstairs alongside the CV equipment.
If you like squash there are eight courts and when you've finished a sauna and steam to relax in.
Southbank is a very good gym that provides everything you would expect from a top gymnasium.
