  • Cruising Info/ Tips:The gym is not a Gay gym and a certain amount of discretion has to be exercised in approaching blokes, although it is usually very apparent, by their behaviour, when they are 'up for it'. There are no overt '' areas but both the steam room (especially when there is plenty of steam!) and the sauna are both used by blokes looking for no-strings, hot . I have also had a few blokes approach me in the shower cubicles and had a couple of BJs when the gym is very quiet. TheThe full spectrum of guys will be found from twinks to bears and everything inbetween and, interestingly, I have experienced very little 'ageist' behaviour.
    Cruisiest Spots: All of the action I've experienced has taken place in the sauna, steam room or showers (separate cubicles, but not that private). Saturday/Sunday afternoon/evening are also good times for hooking up.
