    We have two the one you pay extra for is the best I'm told but the recommended limit is 6 mins because so intense.... Do you reckon I should give it a try ? X

    Been on again today.... Enjoying it actually.. Although only getting 6 mins because it's fee based and already paying for my membership.. So not paying for two goes... Free soon apparently once they have recouped their investment . X
