I regularly visit the Fitness First gym close to my work on Fetter Lane. The reception staff there are super friendly, always smiling and chatty. You can always tell however when the managers have had a word about selling the products stocked in the gym because they'll be a bit of a sales pitch on arrival. The know me well enough though to not push too much. I was talked into booking some sessions with a personal trainer, which actually turned out really well, I felt motivated and like I was making a real difference to my health and fitness. However, when I was handed over to another trainer I was somewhat disheartened by the pushy sales technique that started to surface as I was approaching the end of my paid sessions. I know it's got to be done, but there's got to be a better approach I'm sure.
