    Gyms with pools in Edinburgh?

    Anyone recommend a good gym with a pool in Edinburgh?

    with decent membership rates?

    I can't believe Edinburgh Leisure charge around 50 nowadays!

    The village hotel at Crewe toll is superb for the money. Really good gym and a lovely pool area with sauna steam room and jacuzzi. 45 a month.

    I joined when it first opened, if you committed to a year worth of membership then you got it cheaper, maybe the difference?

    A few months ago, maybe 8 months or so, I think they split the memberships.

    I was 42 all in but now pay 30 for gym only. Well I only ever go to the gym.



    Nobody tell me I spelled pub wrong!

    I'm a bit of a Jim McDonald - should be going to the gym but more often than not I go to McDonalds.

    That, unfortunately, prevents me from recommending anywhere - sorry.

    Think its 55 now, although if you get a joint membership its 90 for 2 so can still be gotten for 45. If you want you can pay a tenner on top of that to get complimentary towels every visit. Well worth it if you're a lazy git like me who doesn't like the washing machine

    50 is excessive for EL. I know they provide a good service, but surely the council gyms should be more affordable for people than that?

    Do they still offer a "leisure card" that gives you x% off and you can just PAYG for the pool?

    They are doing the ten gym visits, pay for 8 deal, which still works out at 55. Far cheaper and better facilities at Edinburgh Uni at the pleasance which is also open to non students but no pool. It's 6 for an adult swim without a card at the Commie, which is totally ridiculous.

    They have a 10 daytime membership for people on "very low income". Don't know how that's defined. I think they have a gym only membership which is cheaper than the 'everything' pass. I have a discount card which cost (I think) 30 and gets you 25% discount, so a gym+swim at the Commie costs me 5.40.

    Edit: and I've just had a look at their memberships' page....They do 'gym only' for 29.90, plus 35 joining fee. If you use the Commie gym, you get a swim thrown in (possibly at the other centres which have pools too?).

    You could of course speak to a member of staff at EL and get on the friends and family for 33 per month
