I signed up to the gym a year after leaving my last gym.
On first visit it looked good - however after training there for six months (mostly in the free weights area) I realised that
a) it was constantly a mess - weights not put back, tissues on the floor etc
b) it was always crowded - even at non peak times
This in in an old bank so some of the rooms are small and pokey - so it is very 'intimate'.

I found a work colleague who was on a monthly rolling membership so went to transfer the membership to him. When we arrived at the gym we were informed there was a £55 'admin fee' - for basically filling out two forms.
There are better gyms in Central London - with more space, better equipment and no hidden fees.
Would I go back? No.

I mainly joined for the pole fitness classes. There are two, one on Tuesday which I occasionally make it to due to it being so late and another on a Friday which I try never to miss. The Friday teacher Kelly is fab, she's great at teaching multi level classes and I feel completely confident that I'm in a safe, secure, environment.

The only down side is that the poles aren't looked after particularly well, one of them at least is very scratched making it quite difficult on the hands.

Overall the facilities are good, the changing rooms are clean and have good sized lockers. They provide hair dryers...would be great if they could provide straighteners as well, I know a few gyms in London now do this.

Although I take the pole classes, I usually take another class beforehand to ensure I get a really good warm up, I usually take the Step class or Zumba. I have also tried the cheerleading classes after Wednesday Zumba (when it was at Bank last month) and all of the teachers are supportive and motivating.

Overall a great gym. I do have a linked membership which I'm seriously reconsidering as the pole class at Holborn isn't great.

If you're after an all round good set of classes, Bank is good. I can't vouch for the actual gym equipment as I've only ever taken the classes.

Gymbox is by far the best gym in central London(Been to Virgin Active, Fitness First and Cannons... nothing quite adds up to the Gymbox experience). It is a gym in the atmosphere of a night club, with some of the coolest classes there is out there. I've tried out the Kangoo Class (Jump around with Kangoo bouncing shoes to the tunes of music) and the Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) class. Also there's a DJ playing every weekday night if you really wanna sweat it out on the cardio machines night club-style. The facilities are great, with a huge cardio room, probably the biggest free weights area in central London and a big boxing ring with loads of punching bags surrounding it.

The staff are all really neat (and young), and the personal trainers includes a former England champion in Karate & a former European boxing champion. It is also probably the cheapest alternative in the City of London! Though what I find best with Gymbox is the fact that I get really motivated just stepping in the front door. If you want a very formal and calm gym, you should probably avoid Gymbox, because this is a whole throughout hardcore experience!

The review of the gymbox as covent garden said it was one of those places to go to be seen. Being the self conscious type (I'm not going to find out if i look good in lycra), should I look elsewhere for a local gym?

Definitely not my friend. Seeing how it is located in Bank, the clientel obviously also reflect that area. Investment bankers, brokers etc. are not very famous for living a healthy lifestyle (especially not in these times). You can find all types of people here (and not only the big beefs and show off martial arts guys - though they are of course present too, haha) One must just avoid taking it too serious, just go down there and have a fun time!
