Dishonest staff, money centric mindset.. They first promise something and then they charge your for your their faults. What happened is I was in a contract that will end as I would go abroad for a few months and I talked about this when I was starting my contract. Everything was fine till that day came and I wanted to cancel my membership. At first I went and signed a paper to cancel it and they said that it was possible to freeze for two months and I accepted. After a while they sent me an email (just an email no call) saying that it is not possible to freeze for two months. And then I changed my decision and wanted to cancel. What they said was sooo funny they charged me for the month that I would not be here. And the reason is I missed the notice period. I still have the paper I signed which is signed before the notice period. I sent them the paper I signed and talked about the faults they made and the misinformation. In stead of apologising for their fault they sent me a form to fill my details. Moreover I was abroad for a while and could not check my emails. And when I got back, I received an email saying that they are adding admission fee onto the payment that I have not made. Just an email? How can that happen? What they did was pretty annoying and still trying to charge me for it. I have introduced 3 friends there and now I am spreading the word, never ever in my life I will introduce anyone to Gymbox and I will never go. Do not believe what they say, so dishonest. Think five times before you become a member!!!!

Located underneath High Holborn, this compact space combines the atmosphere of a nightclub with state-of-the-art facilities: perfect if you need the distraction of disco lights and pumping music (delivered by resident DJs) to get through a workout. A full-size boxing ring dominates the main space, along with a large movie screen. There's also an impressive free weights area, spinning studio and two exercise studios. While the boxing theme might suggest a macho environment, more than 50 per cent of members are women. Gymbox is worth joining for the bonkers classes alone. Electric Hoop invites you to hula with a neon hoop with the lights down low; Balates combines a ballet barre with pilates; and Bartendaz brings park equipment indoors for a chin up-heavy workout. Further branches in Bank, Covent Garden, Farringdon and Westfield London.
