Round-the-clock fitness in Bristol

We know what a busy bee you are, but if you need to get your fitness buzz from working out at night or early in the morning we have the solution because our doors are open 24/7!  All of our gyms are also monitored remotely so you know that you are in safe hands whenever you work out.

Better space and functional kit 

PureGym Bristol Union Gate has a brand-new face lift! We've improved this gym to provide a new and improved experience. A new functional area including a rig and ski erg machine has been added so you can have fun whilst working out and make progress at the same time. We've also given the cycle studio and fitness studio a new look and feel so you can enjoy your classes even more! 

Top-quality kit to make you fit

We may be a cheap gym, but don’t assume for a moment that you’ll be queuing for the equipment because we are jam-packed with more than 220 pieces of top-of-the-range kit. Take a ride on our fantastic spin cycles which come equipped with computerised monitors designed to give you feedback on your performance. 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.

Once you’re on board you can get your new fitness regime under way by booking a free induction class with an instructor who will show you the ropes and give you tips on the best exercise for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Going to the gym gives me a good start for the day I enjoy going to the gym and appreciate what the staff have put in place for members to work in a safe space. Very grateful for all the sanitising facilities throughout the workout areas. I feel disappointed when I observe certain members not asking themselves available of the cleaning facilities to wipe down equipment before and after use. Walking around like they are immune to the virus COVID 19. Would suggest regular reminders through voice messaging. Would prefer if classes were available to finish at 7:00 or 7:15 at latest as I need to get ready for work at 8:00am

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very cramped Felt as if there was too much equipment very close together with no permeability throughout the gym, the overall atmosphere wasn’t particularly welcoming with lots of guys sat on the weights using their phones making it hard to access the equipment I wanted

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent gym- has everything you need! Fantastic facilities overall. There’s pretty much all the equipment one can think of and a whole array of cardio machines, free weights up to around 50kg I think, functional training zone and not to mention the excellent changing rooms and clean shower rooms.
Date published: 2020-10-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good cleanliness I think there should be hand gel in the changing rooms and wipes for lockers etc. Also, few groups of guys who weren’t distancing and kept walking into other people’s workout boxes, took a while for a member of staff to notice and tell them off.
