Fitness Facilities at Faslane

#1
Hi to everyone who has been to Faslane and used the fitness facilities there can you tell me if they are any good? I am looking forward to getting stuck in with my fitness as I will be based there for a few weeks.

I've only used the pool, tis pretty decent!
Now this is the sort of thing I was after. Will do the bergen and hill thing if I have to and have trained enough to be able to do that kind of thing but my fitness has fallen by the wayside for a bit. Need to get back into shape again. Love swimming, hopefully get to swim every night!

The mystery surrounding us always lures the gullible into a false sense of security. No chasing involved.


Loads of facilities in Faslane, pool ,gym, weights, CV etc. Phone them up and ask what they do to float your boat. I've never used it, but bring your ski's or board and try out the dry ski slope if thats your thing.
Where is this dry ski slope? I remember about 5 years ago when i was on my RNAC they said there was one. But having been back on a ship a few times and never seeing it. And have never heard anoyone mention it i guessed it must have been a PTI having us on a bite.

The facilities there are the best I've seen at any naval or indeed any military base any anywhere!

As previously said the pool is pretty good, with a nice sauna/steam room alongside, pretty decent changing facilities. There are a few squash courts, a five-a-side gym, a cardio room with all the kit you'll ever need, a boxing gym and a brilliant weights/machines room.

There's also an outward bound/AT building where you can get loan kit from right next door.

Enjoy - We did!
