Following government instruction, our gyms in England will be closed from 10pm on Wednesday 4th November for 4 weeks. Members’ payments will be frozen from Thursday 5th November and 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 expect to reopen the gym at the end of the lockdown period and look forward to welcoming you back then.

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 1 out of 5 by from Terrible On the 03/11/20 at approximately 21:30, I was in the basildon branch. I saw two self employed PT named Tony and Adam come into the gym and take several plates off the leg machine. They then walked out of the gym with the plates. As the gym don't have many plates as it is, this was a great inconvenience. This was raised to a member of staff that was working at the time. She didn't see the problem with them taking the weights. Adam and Tony then returned to the gym some time later. She then informed them of our complaint and all 3 of them just continued to stare at us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended! I think you should contest the government's decision to close you down. The gym is so important to people's mental health as much as their physical. It is the one place you can go and truly clear your head. For me personally it's invaluable and I'm desperately sad that you will be closing. The decision to close does more harm than good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good The gym is very clean except for some of us who are careless and leave pieces of used sanitising tissue by the machines.
