Dear All,

I want to join a gym in SE1/SE16 area that has swimming pool. A friend recommended Circla spa. I also found topnouch from this website. Has anyone here used these gyms?

If you know any other gym with with pool in this area I would be very thankful to hear from you. Hav nice day, Mona

There's the Seven Islands Leisure Centre near Canada Water. The pool has been closed for a couple of months because of boiler problems and asbestos in the boiler room but it's due to re-open in a few weeks time.

Fitness First in Cotton Building, Tooley St has a c.30m three lane pool. Weekend membership starts from about 20 per month.

I believe the 37 degrees gym in More London also has a pool, however it's had quite a bit of bad press on this site so I'd think twice before joining.

Fitness first might be cheap but the staff is useless. You want advice, there is noone unless you pay extra. It is good if you want to use the gym worldwide. Fitness first in Paris and Germany are really nice and the staff is much friendlier!

I used Top Notch for over a year and found it ok although it also has had a few bad comments during its time. Best is to go and get a trial membership and see which one is best.

Top Notch is also the cheapest gym with pool in the area.

Mona - all gyms will let you have a trial day, so why not try out all the gyms in the area and see what you prefer!

Many THANKS for all the replies.

I will check them all. The only good point I have found so far about circle spa is that they have a parking space. They don' have a free trail but I will go to see it someime this week.

Once again thanks for everone who replied to my query.

Peckham Pulse/other fusion fitness centres are by far the best IMO.

Guy's hospital also has a swimming pool available to the public.

Is that actually true? I've often heard this rumour but I thought the pool was staff only.
