I was a member at greens a year ago and because two or three ladies on reception who also took classes were just well only one word for it jealous made my membership there uncomfortable and actually ended in me being banned!! Yes hard to believe but it's true ! I thoroughly enjoyed the classes being a less mills fan and did a lot of working out there! I use to get seedy looks and they use to bicker about me, they make there little group and stand close to me to make me feel uncomfortable.... (read more)

Despite recently being renovated and new equipment installed, a lot of the equipment is always broken and the gym and pool are dirty. The steam room is very dirty and out of order on a weekly basis. Almost as often the showers are freezing cold. Worst of all, the staff have an appalling attitude. They are always desperate to leave early, and clearly see the customers as a nuisance - it's difficult to believe that you are paying to go there! I could go on... (read more)

This is a very expensive an old gym. They can clearly not justify the price they charge. With two monthly payments in this gym you could cover the annual fee in a bigger, better, newer and cheaper gym in Liverpool like the Gym Group or Ben Dunne Gyms. Equipment is old, insufficient and customer service is terrible. If you try to cancel your membership they would make it very hard. I would clearly not recommend this gym to anyone. (read more)

Was a member when this opened. Had to leave as had health problem (broken back to be precise) and they still insisted in charging for the rest of the year followed by the extra as they continued to take money even after 2 letters to cancel.

I was a member of this gym for six years.

Having been a member for over 10 years and also fit for life member,it was sad to give up membership. reason for leaving greens is due to poor customer service experienced from membership office staff and the manager.

Greens WAKEFIELD withdraw a full years membership over £500 without consent and when challenged no apology and explanation. Always paid upfront by cheque only... (read more)

Have to admit Greens Liverpool is cheap and cheerful compared to some places - you can get a monthly sub for c £45. But there is absolutely no excuse for the lazy characters lounging around the pool area when, as employees, they are responsible for safety and hygiene. The saunas floors are always inches deep in water for several hours - especially towards the end of the night and also are not heated to the optimum temperature - the dry Sauna in particular is often just warm. You can guess... (read more)

I rejoined Greens Health and Fitness :Chingford after a year or so of absence and am really wishing I hadn't. The place has deteriorated; it is very difficult to get booked into classes and there are always problems with facilities being 'out of service.' One really infuriating factor is that customers are sent vouchers as a 'reward' for loyalty just as the fees are hiked up, and for the last two years, half the vouchers were past their sell-by-date by the time they arrived. It is nearly... (read more)

Whatever you do, do not go into a contract with these people. I was deceived into entering a contract with them and they increased the cost of my membership and stated that it was part of the clause. Also, since my membership expired, they have been collecting money from my account, claiming that I did not write a letter to warn them that my membership is over.It seems all they care about is money.

Pushy sales team make a host of promises when you sign up but do not deliver. I was assured that the friend who referred me would receive a £20 cheque in the post if I joined greens. 6 months later this is yet to materialise and the reception team have been extremely rude and unhelpful when I have asked about this. Similarly, I was charged £10 for a trial day at the gym and told that I would be reimbursed if I joined. Once I had signed up I was told that this was no longer possible. The... (read more)

Beware, I joined the Chingford branch of Greens early this year and decided to cancel as it is ridiculously expensive at over £60 a month and the facilities are lacking and out dated and the staff are almost non existent.

Went in to Chingford Greens to get information on fees etc. No brochures or lists available. The receptionist didn't even have a business card to give me so I could phone them.
No price info on their website either.
Except that I spoke to a member outside who told me the monthly rate I would still know nothing.
Sounds like they are cutting costs and as always the members pay!

I have been a member at Green's Health & Fitness for four years now and have finally had enough. I have given my notice and only wish I had done it sooner. Initially the place seems great but over time you realise you are getting totally ripped off.
The good points:
The facilities are above average, with a decent cardio, resistance and weights section in the gym, and the pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzis (three) and ice room aren't bad either.
The bad points:

Rejoined Greens Leicester after a few years absence but was extremely disapointed. Standards have dropped in most areas, staff attitude from the manager down is awful (which in my experience usually stems from the manager), some of the facilities not working and don't get fixed, changing rooms poorly maintained. It was no surprise to me to hear that a lot of people have cancelled their membership, which is what I have done. Ask for a free period before you sign up - you then probbly won't (read more)

Greens is a decent enough gym that charges a pretty high price. The problem with the gym is its staff and its membership policy. The staff are almost exclusively mouth breathing scallywags that are presumably the result of a most unfortunate bout of intense interbreeding that must have occurred around the late 1970's in the liverpool/bootle area. A standard response to a simple query will inevitably entail a sort of low guttural moaning sound accompanied by much brow furrowing and... (read more)
