I have been a member at Riley's for just over 8 months now.
The classes that used to be on only ever got two or three girls in them, so maybe that's why they have been stopped? Most other gyms like Fitness First, Curves, Contour's and Anytime Fitness, don't have any classes either. Seems to be the approach of most gyms these days.
There is a massive cardio section, with plenty of machines and also lighter weights for girls upstairs and a very large weight floor downstairs, which has all the heavier weights and machines. I am just an average girl and I go train downstairs, I never feel intimidated by the other members and since I have been a member there I have noticed alot more girls also not scared to train with the big boys. Also I find if you need help or advice everyone is always happy to help you.
Let's face it a gym is a gym, you go to train and get out, it's as easy and simple as that.
Parking can be difficult at the peak times, but I guess that has alot to do with the gym's location, I sometimes park outside the complex and just walk up, bit of extra cardio always helps, no biggie really.
I find the staff to be good and helpful, if ever I have needed something I ask and have never had any problems. I recently switched over to the direct debit system and have had no problems. Everything was explained to me and most of the information is in the contract you personally sign.
I have also been getting my meals through Mass Nutrition every week, muscle meals direct and easy and simple alternative to eating clean and helping reach my weight loss goals, staff in there are all also helpful.
At the end of the day it's an old school gym, not many left like this. I am seeing results so I am very happy.
