Barnstaple gym reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Groups People coming in groups so can’t get to use equipment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lay out, cleanliness, equipment all first class Excellent all round. Clean and easy to use, very friendly staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent gym, all the basics, nice staff. All the constant focus on COVID is doing my head in, every single song played over the speakers has an interval to notify gym goers of how safe the gym is. It's ridiculous, as is the idea of wearing a mask in between sets or when you're moving from one piece of equipment to another. I'm aware that you probably have to do this all legally but it's maddening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good work out Good work out today but unfortunately the cleanliness of your gym still hasn’t improved since my last feedback on Tuesday. It would also be polite for you to acknowledge gym members comments. I changed from Barnstaple leisure centre because of hygiene issues .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good range of equipment and very COVID safe I went with my friend and we both thought it was really good. We used multiple machines and equipment and we will keep coming every week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good gym. But classes needs better notification I've only put a 1* for the attention of the manager. I feel its unfair that I get an email at 6pm informing me that I have managed to get a spot for a class 1 hour before the class begins. Text message would be a lot more efficient and I would of seen it. So now I'm guessing I'm a "no show" now? Also there isn't enough classes available, and are mostly "full" or "waiting spaces". I couldn't even book a induction session so why have I had to pay £15 joining fee for? I'm not overly happy with the service but the gym itself is clean, maintained with good equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cleaning stations and spaced equipment Went in quiet time so the app is good to show you when that is - like the new scan code access system which will allow me to remove the disk on my keyring

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent- felt really safe, extremely organised My first visit after almost 7 months - I was a little apprehensive in going but once I arrived that apprehension instantly lifted! I just wish I’d come back sooner! Really impressed at how many cleaning stations were available together with plenty of sanitiser throughout the gym Loved all the specific training areas that had been created to ensure social distancing was adhered to at all times, equipment had been positioned to again comply with distancing measures - felt really safe & felt to good to be back training Thank you for making it a safe training environment So good to be back! Well done PureGym Barnstaple x Ps a friend contacted me following my earlier Facebook check in asking what it was like & whether I’d recommend the gym - and yes absolutely I would & did!!
