Manchester Exchange Quay gym reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well equipped The equipment is well spaced out and there was plenty of it although it was particularly quiet at the time I went. The gym floor was clean generally and one of the PTs was putting away weights left lying about but I must comment on the fact that I did not see one person cleaning down equipment after they had used it which is disappointing and very different from what I found last time I was there. I needed to ask a member of staff (Allyah) a question about classes and she was very helpful in finding out the answer and getting back to me speedily so I could plan my week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym, has everything you need, is very busy. It is a fantastic gym with everything that you need. Only downsides are, there are so many free weights they are never where they should be and it's always very busy, but that's to be expected for the low cost.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value but behaviour of members let it down The gym is fairly spacious and has a decent amount of equipment so that I generally don't have to wait at all to do what I want to do. The one area the gym equipment falls short in are a lack of spotters on the large black frame. The temperature is also fine although I sometimes find I accumulate a fair amount of sweat on more strenuous sessions, which may indicate the air is perhaps a bit more humid than it should be. Regardless I've never considered this a huge problem. Where the gym does fall short is the behaviour of staff and members. It seems that it has become socially acceptable to not clear up after yourself. The members don't see a problem in not doing it and neither do some of the staff. The majority of the time if the weights are put back at all it's just in any old order. How does locking a 2.5kg plate behind a 20kg plate help anyone? Yet I see this time and time again. I could understand someone doing it who's only been going to the gym a few months but it's the same old faces. I try to set a good example and go out of my way to leave the area in a better state than I found it but I find it very frustrating when the "every one else does it, so why should I bother?" mentality is so pervasive. This is where the trainers should be stepping in to set a good example but they don't. I really don't think this is asking too much and it's only because this behaviour has gone unchecked that things have ended up how they have.
