I have been a member for many years and it's by far and away the best gym and swimming pool experience in North London, if not the city. The staff have all helped me out over the years, are hugely experienced, welcoming and courteous. I swim twice a week and I love the pool. I've read a few reviews commenting about the temperature and 'pool-etiquette' which I'd like to address. I've been training there for a long, long time and if you find it too cold then I'd suggest you are possibly not moving fast enough. It's a swimming pool not a jacuzzi. I've trained in swimming pools all across the UK and the temperature is perfect. Furthermore, I've not had any problems in terms of pool-etiquette, the rules are set out clearly on the wall and the lifeguards and staff are very helpful in maintaining good lane management. As with any swimming pool, if you follow the rules and act responsibly then you won't have any problems. The Paul Dillon Swimming School that operates there is fantastic with many of the staff having swam at competitive levels. The adult swim squads will certainly put you through your paces & Paul also provides training for adults regardless if you are a beginner or looking to improve your technique or speed.Whether it be from the reception staff, the cleaners, the managers, the gym-team/Personal Trainers or the swimming staff - the level of customer service I have always found to be exemplary and it has a real 'family' atmosphere. They care about their clients and it shows. I can't recommend UCS Active highly enough. More...
Very good. Recommended
Very nice place - great services!
The best swimming lessons! Wonderful pool for teaching children how to swim. You can choose from one teacher to one child, one teacher to two children along with other choices. I spent an hour watching the swimming teachers giving 110% to all the kids in their care. The teachers were all so fit, full of energy and enthusiastic. It was pure joy to watch the children being taught, being so encouraged and having so much fun. There's a nice gallery where parents and carers can watch their children having a brilliant time, achieving their goals of swimming well and thoroughly enjoying the whole experience. So professional. Five, big, splish, splash, splosh, gold stars. Well done! More...
Great gym. Fab staff. Always a pleasure to go in there.
UCS has amazing friendly service and it feels like a small family. All the staff are polite and attentive
UCS Active's excellent pool is their jewel in their crown - so well managed and clean (also the floor in the changing area leading from the showers is constantly mopped). Very family friendly - it is in a school after all - and feels like a community really, underpinned by friendly staff team. Caters well for all fitness levels. Great range of classes in the studio timetable. Staff are always approachable and encouraging with advice and tips. The Gym is modern with a balanced range of equipment and a focused working atmosphere. Having Physio Fitness on site is a real bonus and the Personal Trainers are also first class in my experience. I've been a member for twelve years and counting... More...
A wide selection of brand new equipment. Recently renovated and well maintained. During term time only open 1800-2200.
Friendly and knowledgable staff, laid-back atmosphere, and fantastic facilities! Perfect for winding down after a long day
I love the gym, the staff and the community-feel that I get from the place!
Great pool, friendly staff and never overcrowded so you don't need to wait for machines. Overall very good value
I use the pool every day and absolutely love it. The staff are all friendly and the other facilities are great too.
This well managed gym has clean facilities and helpful staff. The classes are well varied and instructors very friendly and professional. Has a nice pool, usually quiet after 8pm.
Overall, UCS Active is good value at £55/month. Unlimited gym, classes, pool and use of tennis court. More...
A good-sized pool with not too many fights over wetiquette. But why does the floating older lady take 4 minutes to paddle 25m? And what about the chap whose left leg does a massive splash every third cycle of his breast stroke? And is the man who leaps in to the shallow end a confirmed sociopath?
The staff are almost all pleasant and helpful. More...
Basically, it's the best gym in the area.
Having left a neighbouring gym (Virgin) this month to join UCS Active I can say that my decision was well worth it. The pool is lovely, clean and well managed. An absolute pleasure for lane swimming.
The 3 tennis courts are great and easily maintained, plus it's relatively easy to book a court.
As for for the gym and classes, they're smaller but much higher quality and you can actually get a space! Even at relatively short notice.
I was paying £104 per month at Virgin and now £55 at UCS Active. Literally no comparison. Highly recommended. More...
Great environment, really dedicated teachers and instructors. If you need a relaxed and motivating gym to keep feet, this is the place to go.
