    I'm a 37 yo professional guy who has been going to the gym regularly for 4+ years and on/off for 10 years. I am fit and a good laugh. I recently completed a triathlon and will be competing in the BIRC in Nov.

    I belong to the Virgin Active gyms and go to a few in central London, mainly Old Broad, Moorgate and Barbican. Up until recently I have been training with a PT 2X a week and enjoy it but he is changing jobs. I really don’t like training on my own but thought I would see if anyone would be interested in training with me b4 I start looking for a new PT. While PT is good and motivating it is also bloody expensive.

    At the moment I am looking to get from 17% body fat to about 12% and then start some serious weight training. So if this sounds like something someone may be interested in then let me know.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    Also use Virgin Active but a member in Croydon. Also use a PT there who is very good.

    I could also do with having a training buddy for the times I don't see my PT. Losing body fat is also something I want to focus on.

    I work Central London, Holborn.

    If you are interested perhaps I could find out about whether I'd be able to use my membership locally

    Totally unrelated to the topic at hand but had to ask, is there ANYTHING that Virgin doesn't own over there?!

    Not a lot - trains, planes, record co, vodka, wine, coke, gyms. Probably loads more.

    I am also looking for a gym buddy.

    I really want to be MASSIVE.

    I'm pretty vain so my gym buddy will have to tell me how strong I am quite a lot to get me through a gym session.

    I also really like the swimming pool area, I used to go with this girl but she was pretty rubbish and could beat me at underwater races which is not cool.

    I may also need help applying my moisturiser after I've had a shower.

    Hi I am a new member although I have become a keen user of Moorgate. I am there 4 times a week during the week. I try and cycle mainly and also do weight training too. Happy to work out with someone.
