Better space and functional kit coming soon

We will also be giving 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.

Bristol Union Gate gym reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor rearrangement I sign up with PureGym more than a year a go and I am disappointed by the new re-arrangement you did especially in the weighty area were everything is so crowded right now, it's like breathing in each others faces. There is no space to feel comfortable and on top of that you took out some useful machines. I feel you totally ignore the bodybuilding side of it and just focused on cycling and fitness which make me think I should change the gym and choose a place that suits my needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great class. Environment needs sorting I mostly do spin class in the summer but supplement that with cardio over the winter. The spin classes can be variable, but those with Julie Poole are absolutely fantastic. From my perspective the kit in the gym is good too. Now to the environment. The idea of enclosing the spin bikes needs to be rethought. If the class is full it gets hot in there very quickly because the new enclosures reduce ventilation. On Tuesday it was palpably cooler when stepping away from the enclosure. You either need to remove the walls or you need to put a number of wall mounted fans all around the spin room. Secondly, the mens showers have been increasingly dysfunctional all year and the changing room can be crowded at busy times. I appreciate you've been doing up the showers, but its taken a long time

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was very please to hear that the ladies changing rooms were being redone and had presumed that this would allow for more hairdryers and mirror space which is very much needed at peak times such as before work. I was a bit disappointed when visiting last week when I found that the refurb had basically just replaced everything that was already there (like for like) and moved the door. It seems a tad pointless to not have increased the number of hair dryer at least! The rest of the gym was not yet completed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The smell is repulsive I signed up after going to Harbourside (very nice) for a while and moving this year. This gym is absolutely disgusting. There is literal rubbish cluttered under the stairs after walking in, it's been the same rubbish since I started (I imagine cleaning staff is only contracted to clean within the actual gym, and not the entrance etc). The smell as soon as you walk in is vomit-inducing. They say they "hire regular cleaning staff blablaba", but it smells like a persistent mould in the carpet, probably formed when the gym floor gets wet every rainy day and the material isn't treated properly (or total and complete neglect), unsure which. Any Personal Trainer worth anything would have mentioned this to the higher ups at some point, you can't proudly run a class with that smell going on.
