From EasyGym to Pure Gym and beyond

MOST POPULAR

It's that time of year again. 

The Summer holiday season is underway, Gigi and Taylor have just been seen frolicking their lithe bodies in the waves and Kim Kardashian's latex antics in Fergie's new music video are burned into your retina.

You've mentally committed, you've invested in a whole new kit, the Nuribullet is on your kitchen counter and you've stocked up on protein powder and flax seeds.

You're good to go.

Now comes the exercise part. 

A quick morning 5K run and the odd pilates class will do, right? 

Perhaps it would actually be nice to have access to a few bits of equipment, but when it suits you, so you can go at your own pace. And certainly without the financial obligation of a £70 gym membership that you would use but thrice a month.

The solution, you ask? Pay-as-you-go gyms. 

MOST POPULAR

Pay for the classes you go to, without a long-term commitment. Because let's face it, the only time we NEED to work-out is after Christmas and in summer…right!? 

Yep we're content with that. 

We've rounded up the best selection in the UK, so get juicing…
