We all know that regular exercise is the surest path to a longer and healthier life.
And whatever your fitness goals – from aquasize to zumba, kickboxing to yoga – there is a gym with a regime for you.
A sanctuary where you can switch off your phone, forget your worries and get your brain and body buzzing with positive energy.
So what makes the ideal gym? Helpful, competent, qualified staff? Clean, modern and well-maintained equipment?
Obviously reasonable prices and a sensible payment plan count too.
And, of course, it should be not too far away, so you keep going back.
