Thank you for replying to my review, regarding... cutting the number of lanes and forwarding a contact email. I will email Rob shortly, once I have collated some facts as I do not want to fall into the trap of echoing misinformation again (albeit information given to me by a member of staff). Also I am surprised that nobody complained at the desk on the 21/May, when myself and other swimmers fell foul to this strategy as they were as just as peeved as me, if not more. Once again thank you for the response.read more

I Attended the Fitness Fiesta day yesterday at... The Edge. I've been a member for over a year now, but I've only attended a few of the classes offered (spinning and yoga etc), so it was great to get a taster of all the different types of classes they do. I Will deffinately be going to the Dance classes and Body Attack again!. All the instructors were so friendly too so it made me feel a lot more comfortable as I was nervous about going, but I had such a good time!read more

I have been Cycling with Charlotte on Tuesday... mornings for the past 4 months, and I couldn't be happier with the results.Her enthusiasm and encouragement make each session enjoyable, and I always leave feeling motivated to push myself further. Her choice of picking the right tunes is always outstanding! 45 mins class always flown so quick! I highly recommend cycling with Charlotte to anyone serious about improving their fitness level.Can we have more cycling classes with her?😊read more

Certainly! "The Edge" typically refers to the... outermost part of something, often a boundary or border. It can also symbolize the forefront or cutting edge of technology, innovation, or any field. It evokes a sense of adventure, risk-taking, and pushing boundaries. Metaphorically, "living on the edge" suggests living a daring or unconventional lifestyle.read more

Excellent facility, by far the best uni gym I’ve... been to and I’ve been to many. Very well equipped gym, and the pool is great. Staff are all friendly too. Only downside is it can get very busy at peak times, but that is to be expected as it serves 30k students .read more

My 5 stars go to the staff working here!! They... are really helpful, always willing to help and with lots of knowledge on how to properly train. Special mention (and thanks!) to highly motivated staff members as Slavi (you must try his HIIT classes) and Chloe (Body Pump..haven't seen her in a while though...). People like them know how to push you to give your 110%, choose proper exercises, guide you through them and vary them so that it does not become boring. You can tell that they worry about our individual goals and they'll try to help you as much as possible to keep improving. Their friendliness and motivation is invaluable!The gym facilities are great, with lots of equipment and rooms (swimming pool, indoor cycling, weightlifting..) and plenty of space even in crowded days/times. But, if it weren't for the staff and their excellent service, the gym would be just as any other.read more

Good: Gym staff are great and is equipped well.... The environment is also great for a workout and the gym itself is very clean.Downside: It is REALLY busy during term time, so I understand the booking system to use the sauna, but it’s pretty annoying (they didn’t used to have this before Covid). The fact that a lost card costs £5 when you pay nearly £50 per month is also a joke. I don’t understand why they can’t use a QR code on the phone like most other gyms do (without issue).Overall: it’s a great gym, although I don’t think they can fully justify the price as it currently is. However, when I am back in Leeds, I certainly will rejoin as I’ve been coming here for years now.read more

Although the gym is a bit pricey, I was willing... to pay for another year due to the fantastic equipment they provide, as well as the amazing customer service and approachability from the team. The staff are super friendly and always willing to help with any questions or even at times (politely) step in and advise you on your training. Its always nice to feel like staff are there to help and motivate you - as well as being a friendly face - which is not something I can say for all gyms! Although all the staff are lovely, I have had the best experience with Slavi as he has always been super friendly to myself and others, and he given me some great advice or just a friendly chat and it feels like there is a proper nice gym community between the staff and the members because of these interactions! :)read more

Our 6 year old daughter comes here every Saturday... morning for a 1:1 swimming lesson with Charlotte (sorry don’t know last name) for over a year now.My daughter also goes to a public lesson during the week with a council swimming baths, this said our daughter would not be at the level of swimming she is now without Charlottes input.Myself and my wife feel and think Charlotte does an AMAZING job with our 6 year old who sometimes her attention span can be short, Charlotte is very good at understanding how to mix it up / bring the lesson back on track.Well done Charlotte and keep up the great job you’re doing.I hope management pass this review on to Charlotteread more

Been a member here on and off for almost 10... years. Just wanted to give a shout out to Dale, one of the Edge reps. I spoke to another rep about referring a friend to the gym and whether they would be eligible for a discounted membership. I was told flatly that this is not something they do and it is something that I can give as feedback instead. The rep didn't even bother trying to find out if there was a referral scheme (maybe new or there maybe a training need?).However, Dale overheard the conversation, politely took over the conversation, went through the options and found a discounted referral rate for my friend. Great customer service from Dale, there was a willingness to get the extra info for me.read more

Look forward to joining this gym soon, I may just try out the climbing wall too!read more

I began to use The Edge Gym almost 2 months ago... by purchasing 20 hours of personal training sessions.Unfortunately my timing meant most of my period spent at this gym was within the substituted training room(s) due to the summer refurbishment. That said, the booking system in place at the time for all members meant the limited capacity of gym space was never overcrowded and working out comfortably was still possible. Luckily, I managed to spend 2 weeks working out in the newly refurbished gym space which evidently had a lot of thought put into its layout due to its spaciousness and abundance of newly purchased state-of-the-art Technogym equipment everywhere. Whilst working out, it was great to see staff cleaners walking around disinfecting and cleaning the equipment after use of others. I would definitely recommend The Edge Gym to others - especially University of Leeds students, for which such a facility is an asset.I would also recommend investing in a personal trainer at The Edge if you have the means as my experience with Aimee Lewis was nothing short of lovely. Aimee focused on consolidating a strong foundation into my fitness by initially focusing solely on the basics of the mobility and posture required for optimising training at the gym. She then tailored my personal training programme each week to ensure I was both having fun and challenging myself a little more. I did spend a lot of time complaining to her how I hated what she put me through (lol) but I always left my gym sessions feeling so much better - both mentally and physically - each time.My lack of one star in this review is due to the membership options. I never purchased a membership as this was not required for personal training sessions. However, now that I had wanted to use The Edge without a personal trainer, I was unhappy to learn the membership options were nothing less than a 3-month direct debit programme. The option of 1-month would’ve been better as I plan on going away soon. The one-off passes are also quite extortionate in my opinion, so do bear that in mind for those of you who are unable to commit.read more

Great sports facility with almost everything you... could ask for. A gym, swimming pool and various other activities.I only used the gym, it has a separate oly weights room with multiple squat racks (5/6) and deadlifting platforms. It then has a fitness suite and various free weight sections and a stretching/plyo space.The ample parking is free to the public after 5pm and weekends - don't chance it as ANPR is in use.I was only visiting for a short while and so purchased 12 visits for £80. Other gyms in the area (Total Fitness) wanted a minimum 3 week membership plus a bunch of joining/admin fees which would have come out at £180.read more
