Hey!
I go to the 24/7 gym and have since the start of the year. For the price I think they are fantastic - the one I go to is big, modern and clean and has plenty of machines and weights etc. You dont have all the classes to choose from or staff to help you out aroud the gym, but if you have worked out before and just want to go and use the equipment I think it is a really good choice of gym! Frustrating sometimes if your fingerprint doesnt work the first time to let you into the premises, but apart from that I have been more than happy (especially considering the price!!!)

Thx for the information. Is the Gym really available 24/7? Sounds unbelievable smile.gif
Are there running machines, exercise bikes and all that jazz?

Just as a matter of interest, as I do not have a 24/7 near me, what does it cost?

I have a membership to a local Gym that has a full range of equipment plus swimming pool, Bubble pool and bastu for 225kr per month ( pensioner rate) otherwise 240kr.

Only thing it is only open from 06:30 to 21:00 not 24/7

Hello Again!

The one I go to has heaps of equipment - treadmills, cross trainers, rowing machines and bikes. There are heaps of free weights as well as new and modern weight machines. There are separate areas with fit balls and stretching mats etc. There is also a separate female gym! And yes ... it really is open 24/7 smile.gif you have to swipe your card to get through the first door, and then a fingerprint scan is used to get through the second door - because of this they are secure enough to be open all day round, although there are only staff there for a couple of hours in the afternoon to sign up new clients. I pay 199 a month and I think its a really good deal!
