We all love training outdoors but, in those now-famous words, “Winter is coming”. For much of the UK, this now seems to mean that it might occasionally mean that temperatures get down to single-figure degrees Celcius. Nevertheless, many of us know that we should be putting on pounds of muscle in the gym in the ‘off’ season.
We also know that a full year gym membership will go unused for much of the year.
I’ve used PayAsYouGym for a couple of years now for occasional access to my local gyms. They give pay-as-you-go access to council gyms and, in my case, also the SAME access to Nuffield Health, which I think used to be Virgin Active. there may well be other options all over the country.
PayAsYouGym have been rebranded to Hussle.com
The key thing is that you do NOT need to do one of those annoying familiarisation sessions when you use a new gym
So, in the case of Nuffield Health, that means you can use a reasonably good gym for less than £10 a pop. Council gyms can be less than £5. At least those are the prices near me.
There are also time-limited, cheaper package deals, starting from packs of single days going right up to a three-months-for-the-price-of-two offer. In the above example of Nuffield, they have different tiers of gym so prices vary, but you would then probably be looking at 2x£90 for a three-month membership. Which probably isn’t too bad for a half-decent gym in London (much cheaper elsewhere in the country)
You pay on the app BEFORE you go, turn up and then show the code on your app. It’s simple.
If you are interested this link should give you 50% off your first pass, I’m not sure if the two offers I’ve mentioned here will work together. If you use the following link I get a free gym session, thank you.
