I had been thinking of re-joining my local DW Sports for the winter months; there are many advantages of doing this for us thrifty, keep-fit sporty types. I have fairly positive memories of being a previous member at their well equipped place in downtown Dunstable. It wasn't perfect but not bad at all.
So recently I got in touch to find out what the deal is. They are more remote nowadays if you enquire on-line and end up giving your email address which then leads to spam. Grrrrr. I am unsubscribing from that.
I emailed the local club and said what I wanted - cost effective gym membership for a few months - what could they offer me? No reply. Poor show DW.
Instead Pay As U Gym looks pretty good. I took the offer of a free trial session and then I have bought five prepaid sessions for November. Simple - no 12 month contract and competitively priced too. I will be bringing you a review on my experiences of this and the fitness club involved fairly soon.
Below I am listing some previous posts on DW. The review is positive, the other posts paint a less rosy picture, especially of the store. Please bear in mind these are a few years ago and apply to one individual store and fitness club - it might not be an accurate impression of what you'll find yourself and you will need to check it out and form your own opinion.
