Thought it was time I left a review, so what can I say, I joined back at the beginning of July having not stepped in a... Gym for about 20 years, I was extremely overweight and needed to change, I can happily say that from the moment I walked in and spoke to Dave, I knew I had found the place to help me do it. Since following what Dave went through with me I have lost 8 stone, and feel like a new person from it. still a little way to go but know that I have found the place I will do it. Finding Vida and Dave has literally changed my life for the better.read more

I have been training here for a number of years on and off when home from university and it is by far the best gym in... Oxford. The range of equipment (i.e., squat racks/platforms), an entire room dedicated to plate-loaded machines, the fact that it is never overly busy so weighting for equipment is rare makes it my favourite place to train. Finally, the exceptionally friendly and encouraging staff make it an incredible training environment. Hats off to Dave and the team at Vida, keep up the good work.read more

As somebody who isn't really a gym person but has been forced to try and be proactive and loose weight due to an... expanding waistline and an unhealthy love of burgers, I must say I have been very impressed at how welcome I felt joining this gym.I have been to gyms in the past but have never managed to last more than a month before the novelty wore off.After joining VIDA I felt comfortable enough to go to the gym ON MY OWN. This is something I have never done. The staff are great at keeping you motivated and I am already starting to see a difference in my fitness levels.I highly recommend VIDA to any first timers who might feel nervous about joining the gym, it's a great atmosphere with tons of equipment and the staff are really great.Take the plunge ���read more

Results guaranteed! That’s what I like about the ethos of the Vida gym. I was reminded of this today—one of those... new year sessions that aren’t quite a good as I remember from last year. One of the PTs was working knee stretches with someone on the floor. I remember when he first did that with me—it hurt so much as the trigger point activated. I did the same exercise in my warm up to dead lifts and no pain (in that spot). A reminder as I set my goals for the new year that results do come through.read more

Vida's not my closest gym (by far) but of the few gyms I've been to this is by far the best. Plenty of equipment... (cardio and free weights) so you never have to wait or pause your workout. Great people too - I'm engaged in a PT program and smashing my goals much much faster than if I was trying to do it by myself. Would definitely recommend.read more
