    There's no legal requirement to offer free water.

    you sure about that ?

    I was fairly sure it WAS the law ?? Maybe an old tale though ..

    Edit*

    Just had a look online and it seems to be that if the place sells alcohol then they must provide free tap water.
    Other places don't have too.

    Fountains, but I  fill up from the tap as it's quicker.

    Drinking water comes from a tap. I've never seen a gym charge for it.

    Pretty sure it is a legal requirement, as when a fountain stopped working on the top floor (free weights/ cardio area), they had to give use free bottled water.

    Yes, if the tap from the changing rooms count

    I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

    My old gym never offered free water, infact they'd kick us out if caught us filling bottles from the tap.  They blamed it on water rates, weirdly we could shower as long as we wanted. 

    Poor customer service led to my friend quitting,  I left because I moved.

    My new gym has 3 or 4 fountains

    All statements made by myself are mere opinion unless otherwise stated.

    We've already had the old fail argument. The water from ALL taps is drinkable. So if they have a tap in the bogs, changing rooms etc you have water.

    But those that charge... maybe for a cup or something but for the water?? Piss take.
