I've been a memeber of this gym for around a year and I quite like it. The machines are modern and there's enough of them. I've never had to wait for any cardio or fixed weight machines. The lighting is dimmed and decor modern. No harsh, bright lights which is a plus. I think it could probably do with being a little cooler in the cardio area but that's personal preference. There are a few issues, the showers and pool area are dirty. A place like this must be making enough money to keep up... (read more)

This place could be so good but fails on vital points, namely customer service and cleanliness.Surly staff who apparently don't care, they turn up late to open up, really give the impression that opening up and actually being there is a damn nuisance to them. The pool often has plasters, hair bands, sand, the other day a water bottle floating around. Wierd sticky stuff round the edges of the pool, thick dust on top of the shower area, generally scummy.Often no shower gel, TV didn't work for... (read more)

Surly staff. Incredible noise, dirty and unhelpful! AND just try leaving, they harrass you for money, try and squeeze extra months out of you and generally behave badly. My advise is fill in the leaving form and get one of them to sign it and give you a copy. Best move I made.Leaving is a trauma. My best advice, dont join in the first place (read more)

I'm not going to lie, the idea of joining the gym made me feel sick- particuarly this one as I'd already heard that it was a bit of a posers gym, but I went for a trial anyway- and loved it! The gym is well laid out, clean, and have very helpful and lovely staff. The classes are also really good and suit all capabilities; I honestly enjoy coming here and it never feels a chore.

I joined about 1 month ago as the prices are fair I I liked the layout of the gym area. After a few visits I have found that the place is extremely unclean. Areas such as the steam room and around the pool are especially bad where grime can clearly be seen and felt. I have been to a few different chains of gyms in the last few years and this is the only one where you NEVER see any members of staff doing general cleaning during opening hours... not even the toilets. All members of staff... (read more)

I was origionally a member when the gym first opened but due to lack of facilities i left about 3 years ago, i've recently rejoined and the place has completely changed. The decor is bright and ultra modern, the facilities and machines have been massively improved so much so that it convinced me to come back. The staff are extremely friendly and always helpful. What i really like is that the manager richard is always available and regulary visits the gym and serves at reception rather than... (read more)

I have been to a number of gyms and spa facilities and this is by far one of the best in the area. The gym and changing rooms is cleaned regular during the day.
I have seen some dust under some of the larger equipment (the hard to reach places) but the gym is kept very clean. In the pool are i have notice the robe devider has marked the tiles on the pool side, but its not dirt and all the area is very clean.
any problems with an area, equipment ect are alway deal with very quickly

Changing rooms could do with a good clean and also the pool area around the tiles are filthy. There is dust in a ring all around the machines in the main area. Could just do with a good clean. Also too many £10 for 10 day deals going on as we have to pay full membership and as a result they dont know who is in or out so lockers are getting broken into and money, watches stolen. I was told 12 months ago that they would be extending the pool as its far too small and still nothing has been... (read more)

I left this gym a year ago due to how dirty the changing rooms were and the attitude of the staff. They think they are there to just look good and have no idea of customer service skills.
It was a shame as it is very close to home and the gym area has a good choice of equipment and the classes are excellent especially Pauls!

I joined FX Leisure Stalybridge about a month after opening, it was a great offer especially compared to Esporta which was my previous gym. At first it was a very good idea to go there but after a while I really began to regret my decision. They have continually enlisted members throughout my time there to the point of over-crowding. If I visit on a Monday or Tuesday there is little chance of getting on the equipment. They claimed to have capped membership but while this sign was... (read more)

I have been a member of FX Leisure in Stalybridge since the gym opened and find it a very friendly motivating atmosphere. The Cardiovascular Room is superb with a small area for those wanting a little privacy. The staff are very friendly and only too pleased to help or just have a chat to make you feel welcome and return time and time again. (read more)

FX Leisure Stalybridge - I joined the gym when it first opened in May and while I have been impressed with the standard gym equipment and the large cinema display I found that my major gripe was the lack of monitoring on at the gym entrance allowing many potentially unregistered people to enter at their leisure. This lead to a spate of thefts from members' lockers.... The gym still hasn't done anything to address this issue. The spinning class is below average when led by certain instructors. (read more)

I joined FX Leisure last week. The offer attracted me - No joining fee, no fitness assessment fee and it is only £33 per month to use the facilities during the day or at night (offer open to the first 100 applicants). I used to go to the Village gym where it was £50 to join, £15 for a fitness assessment and £44 per month.
Last night I had my induction, I was introduced to one of the staff, she told me to fill in a couple of forms about my health, then it was off to the gym. I was told... (read more)
