If you enjoy a classic cardio work-out jump on our cross trainers, treadmills, steppers and rowers or for those who want to bulk up take advantage of our huge free weights area and our new plate loaded kit.

We deliver top-class action

We’re not just about the individual at PureGym. If you love working out in groups you will be spoiled for choice with more than 50 free classes available every week. Get involved in some of our high-intensity sessions like fat burn, circuits and boot camp, or tone up those abs, legs, bums and tums. If you’re looking for a low-impact exercise try out our stretch class to reawaken those sleepy muscles. It’s all here waiting to be discovered at PureGym Bristol Union Gate.

Bristol Union Gate gym reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic atmosphere a great team of instructors Perfect lighting and amount of top quality equipment friendly welcoming staff and the gym is located in a prime location easily accessible

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will led really fun classes. I worry about the loss of long standing PTs since the basis for PTs work at Bristol Union Gate branch has changed. I'd like it to revert to no rent if 15 hours of classes are taught.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice but very busy The gym is very nice but I couldn't use most of the equipment because there were not enough for all the people there. you should also consider having a bigger space for people who won't to work out on mats.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from General Comments Overcrowded, not enough ventilation, missing key equipment, music too loud.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots of great equipment to use but quite crowded Equipment is really useful and provides ways of working out every part of your body however I thought it was crowded before the new year but now it’s super crowded but I presume that’s due to everyone trying to start their New Years resolutions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its nicely ventilated and cool inside! I'd love if there were more lockers downstairs, also the vending machines are really slow with contactless Payments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its good, friendly atmosphere, clean. Sometimes there is no hand sanitiser and this is kinda gross, but it doesn't happen very often. I would also appreciate it if you could make sanitiser spray bottles available - as some people are gross and sweaty and don't wipe the machines down after themselves. In general though, I really like PureGym, it has a very friendly culture compared to other gyms i have used. I also feel much safer in pure gym than in other mixed gender gyms that i have been too. I would really like it if you had a branch which provided access to callisthenics equipment, and I would happily pay a lot extra to be able to use such equipment. I would also probably go to more classes if there was a greater range of 'functional' classes available, like yoga, dance, ballet toning, gymnastics toning, circa-media fitness etc. Also, your manager is really lovely and helpful. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value gym All the equipment you need and would expect for a gym with this price, showers and changing rooms recently renovated, PTs always on hand to help.
