    • Chest press

Who is this gym for? – This gym is suitable for all levels, however anyone looking to train with heavy weights or olympic lifts should probably give this one a miss. The lack of heavy dumbbells made working out here difficult.
Tip: The gym is open until late, but that does mean that it is next to the dessert station during dinner time. Prepare for some dirty looks as other people pile into the ice cream as you do your crunches!
