  2. Yuck, scummy.

    Pay the extra, and go to a decent Gym, like one of the Bannatyne's in the North East!
  3. Is there any offical policy on this, driven either by the gyms or the DoD?
  4. There is a TA fitness policy as mentioned in the new "TAQ" newsletter although that's all I could find on it. It states:

    Further than that I know not.

  5. does that mean while we're out pounding the streets or in the gym we can get paid for the priveledge, as long as we're carrying out a recognised training program?
  6. Not likely, but it means that you might be covered by their insurance (and subject to the TA Regs) whilst engaged in said training.
  7. Apologies for digging up an ancient thread but does anyone know if LA Fitness are still doing TA discounts?
  8. Have you thought about phoning them??
  9. The one near me (with a very pushy midget woman) told me I could have a discount from £40 down to £35 (didn't even ask to see any ID).

    I later found that £35 was their price anyway. :x

    (Haven't joined yet as I'm too tight and pavements and parks are free to run on).
  10. just found this thread, and being fitness first member prior to joining the TA, what might we use for proof of being part of the TA?
  11. MOD90?
  12. spot the super-n00b, whats MOD90?
  13. MOD90 your photo Army ID card
  14. ahhh havent been issued with that yet.

    Typically when might you be issued with one? After basic?
  15. Some units issue them just after you've taken your oath, and some after you complete phase 1.
