ultrabodies finedon

Looking to join a gym in my area (near kettering northants) and this one seems to be the popular choice with a few people on here using it
just got a few questions before i make a visit
 
1. what are the opening times like ? id most likely be training around 2pm will it be quite around then as i prefer to get my training done rather than hang around waiting
 
2. Im assuming there will be some kind of induction where you will get shown around the equipment etc.
 
3. i`l be most likely training on my own. is there a rack etc. so i can safely do squats/bench press etc. on my own ? im mainly doing compounds as im just starting out.
 
4. whats the atmosphere like for people new to training ?

    Hi there - that's where I train

    1) 6am-9pm Mon to Fri, 10am-1pm Sat and Sun

    2) if you request it

    3) Yes and 2 Smith machines

    4) Oh we ignor new people.  We bang past them with our shoulders and tut at them.  After a few weeks of them training, we may speak to them, but it's most likely to be abuse.  If you're still there after a few months, we may say 'hello' but that's only coz we want to woo you into the toilets to get bummed.



    Joke - if you come in with a pleasent attitude, you'll be welcomed.  In fact Vince, the owner is very friendly and you're most likely we chatting to him for hours, unable to get away!

    HI, i used to train at a body building gym in findon, which has since closed down (not sure if it was ultra bodies or not). and i used to take some energy pills (performance pills) that i used to buy from there for 21.00. do you know where i can get the same ones from or even there name, as i cant find any that match up to that anywhere. thanks

    Hi Jo - the same gym is still there and has not closed down.
    The pilss you refer to are EPH25+ - they are banned so people can't discuss here where to purchase them, I'm afraid, but you may want to pop by Ultra Bodies again!

    James,
    Is it still £4.50 per session at UltraBodies? (just found this link but saw it's pretty old) I'm currently at Virgin but am looking to knock that on the head as i'm Wellingborough based and hardly use any of their other stuff apart from weights.
    Thanks in advance,
    Paul.

    It's either £4.50 or £5.

    I'd advise against this at Ultra Bodies!

    James, is this where we trained?
    if so, its a quality gym and full of decent equipment, if lived locally, i'd be there to pester james about answering emails all day every day!

    Or maybe they've had a toilet encounter and the OP is either trying to save James blushes, or is embarrassed himself?

    Hi James
    Could you tell me if these are still the opening times for weekends?  Can I just pay and play?
    I currently train at Betterbodies in Northampton during the week, but am looking for a more local gym for the odd weekend session (I live in Souldrop).
    I am a triathlete, but considering having a go at figure next year.
    Thanks
    Jenny
