Whitechapel Sports Center behind Whitechapel market is tucked away and has parking plus bike parking.
This is a duo gym - one mixed and one for ladys only on the back of the building. I do like this -- the gym is spacious and relaxed ( or as relaxed as it can be with music blaring and machines going)
There is one main TV set which all the machines are turned to with a matt area and weights near the doors and windows.
The showers can be really busy so better to time yourself off peak if you can.
This centre is great for kids there is little creche and this can also be rented for party's with access to the football area(all enclosed with own toilet area)
The gym is friendly and I have rented out the room.They are very accommodating and flexible --altogether an okay experience.
Yeah not a bad little sports centre. But not a brilliant one. It's got a standard 'New Labour' architecture and ethos, so more leisure than actually range of participative lets-improve-our-sporting ability, nationally/individually kind of destination. With the obligatory cafe/coffee shop.
So you get aerobics, a gym, badminton courts (but not squash), tabletennis facilities, basketball courts, volleyball courts. They have women-only sessions. Yoga. I suppose there is a lot on offer. It just doesn't inspire me to go down and get active, get fit.
If that's what you're after, then you can probably do it here. Not bad, just not brilliant
This is my local gym and it's good value £40/month. It's got a good 5 aside football pitch out the back which is relatively easy to book. Got some good classes but they sometimes get booked ahead, so you can't just turn up. Good range of running treadmills as well.
