Welcome to our Basildon gym

Following Government instruction, gyms in London and the South East will temporarily close from 8pm on Saturday 19th December. You will not be charged while your gym is closed. All Direct Debit payments will be automatically frozen and so there is nothing that you need to do. We hope to reopen soon and will update members once the Government give us the green light to reopen our doors.

If you’ve never been inside a PureGym before, here's a taster of what PureGym Basildon is like. The gym floor is packed full of over 220 pieces of high-quality kit ranging from cardio machines and fixed resistance machines to functional fitness and a large free weights area. Plus, the timetable of fitness classes included in our memberships, such as circuits and cycling, will let you enjoy working out in a group for free. 

You'll find the gym near to Eastgate Shopping Centre, by the town square. We're just a three-minute walk away from Basildon Train Station, which makes us the perfect choice for locals and commuters. We're open 24 hours a day and best of all members get two hours free parking*.

Basildon gym reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first visit and can’t wait to go back tomorrow. Felt very safe with covid restrictions. Not busy, social distancing , trolleys with cleaning equipment to clean before and after each use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet Visit The gym was nice and quiet when I attended, Cleaning stations were available and stocked and placed what seemed equidistant around the gym. Feels like there should be a couple more available for the size of the gym to save cross traffic but otherwise a safe experience. Cleaning staff were present and were actively cleaning. The changing rooms were clean and tidy. Other members was mixed bag of some adhering to the guidelines and some blatantly not but it's difficult to police at that time of Morning. A good experience for me nonetheless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gym is well maintained with good equipment. Everything is fine other than the lockers are not particularly secure and aren't working half the time. Would be nice to have lockers that are more secure to give you confidence that your things are secure whilst using the gym.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Day back Nice to be back in the gym, quite a lot people but felt safe, the cleaning materials was very low at most stations and one or two with none. Took A leat 5/6 minutes walking round to find equipment clips as the seated back machine uses three and had none. But a good experience in the end.
