Bristol Union Gate gym reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average I couldn't enter gym to look around and bought the membership for 6months. I do regret it since its worn out and lacks equipment. Cleaningness 3/5 as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym but free weights section has issues Union Gate is great gym, lots of equipment and space so you really get your moneys worth. It's an affordable gym, especially for students. There is plenty of equipment for people at all levels of gym experience. But the fact that the free weights area is always so messy is an issue. Dumbbells, plates etc. are never put in their correct places so you spend ages trying to find the ones you need. This issue really needs to be solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Julie is the best! I joined PureGym a couple years back to train for a 10k. The induction was great- left me feeling comfortable in the gym, able to use different machines, and with ideas for different work outs. Skip forward a year and I was struggling with motivation, so I popped on the PureGym website to look at classes. That’s when I saw about the personal trainers. It was great seeing who was available and a bit about each of them- meant I could choose one that fitted to me. Julie has been amazing! She cheers me on, she knows when to push me to give more, and I’ve seen results being with her- both my physical and mental health have improved. She has a great sense of humour too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review :P First time in a Pure Gym and I really liked it. Locker rooms I think are the only drawback I can think of.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but cleanliness needs improving This gym is close to where I live, it’s big and fully equipped but smells of sweat sometimes, seats, mats and treadmills are always dirty. Bathrooms could also be spotless and disinfected much more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient and good value for money I signed up to Pure Gym about six months ago to help me train for an event and get me back on track with my fitness. I can come anytime as the gym is opened 24hrs which is great and get an NHS staff discount.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good gym Been using Union Gate for a few months now and it’s great value for money. Well equipped and lots of room despite being very central. My only downsides are, the Male changing rooms need investment as the lockers are poor quality and there always seem to be a shower or 2 not working (see Bristol - Brislington for a good example of a changing room) and the fact that weights are just left everywhere and never tidied up / put back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wide range of workout equipment and classes I really enjoy my workouts at Pure Gym on Union Gate in Bristol not only because of the convenient location, but because of the wide variety of auxiliary equipment, machines, free weights, floor mats, and classes that you offer. The gym floor space is enormous, and there's so much to choose from, even when the gym is super busy during peak times. My only complaint at the moment is how small the locker room facilities are compared to the size of the gym and the number of women that use the shower and locker room. It's really a tight squeeze, with only four small vanity mirrors. The hair blow dryers are not nearly powerful enough, and they seem to overheat almost instantly before my very short hair is done drying. The shower stalls need to have a much larger shelf for toiletries that women usually use. I personally have four different products, all travel sized bottles, but they don't fit on the tiny rectangle shelf meant to hold only a bar of soap. Come on, guys! Let's think more of what women want! The design would be better if there was a corner 3-tiered shelf in each shower stall. That way, a lady could have ample space to place her shower products without having to bend over to put them on the floor, which is where mine undoubtedly fall every single time I'm in the shower! And how about putting a bench or two near the shower stalls so that a lady can sit to dry off her feet. Even your signs say that we should be careful that we are fully dry before leaving the shower area. Not everyone is flexible enough to reach their feet comfortably and safely whilst standing. After all, that's why I'm coming to the gym - to get more physically fit. But until that happens, I'll need a little bit of help to get there.
