One reviewer wrote: "Staff very friendly and helpful. Love the Bluetooth link on member wristband so when you tap into the equipment it has your previous training during the week saving have to log it down. Sauna's great, steam room could be a little warmer. Swimming pool is good, separate lanes for doing lengths, would be nice to have a longer length pool but not a negative. With membership get discount as well and also for emergency workers. Gym is clean and tidy and equipment always available, which you can check on the app provided too. Definitely recommend."

I wouldn't want to train anywhere else and my overall fitness, strength and confidence has improved massively thanks to The Ministry."
