Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really love it and has great classes Good variety of classes (esp now with dance) and everyone is friendly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it's ok There were a lot of people, all the exercise machines were very busy. The gym was clean. I would like you have more small weights, about 3 to 6 kg. Some lockers are broken, specially those near the entrance. In general the gym is ok, I would recommend to a friend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I came to do LBT class Enjoyed the LBT class, and it will really push me I will do one each week. All the staff are super friendly and encouraging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of space & equipment, always clean I’ve used Puregym Union Gate on and off for 5 years, and I’ve always loved how big it is and how much equipment there is. Personally the only thing that would improve my experience is if there was a weights/bench area for beginners as I’ve only recently started using this area and I feel quite intimidated when I do, and I’ll often find myself feeling like I’m the only person in that section that doesn’t know what they’re doing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gym and PT Experience I immediately joined this gym after moving to the city and hearing positive feedback from colleagues at work. There is a good balance of equipment that is well looked after and the gym is in a central location. I also finally took the plunge back in October and started working with a personal trainer. Petko has helped determine a realistic program to help me on my body-building journey. Dynamically adjusting the program based on feedback and from learning more about areas of weakness as we train. I have made incredible progress over the last three months since training with Petko, at a highly accelerated rate I might add than I have experienced over my own solo years of training. We have built a completely refined program for 2022 to push this even further which I can track through a dedicated app and see my progress. I feel it is of great value to admit where you may not have experience and seek an expert - Of which Petko fits the bill. I would highly recommend booking a consultation with him if seeking a personal trainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PureGym PT In September 2021 I started PT and weights lifting with Petko for the first time. At first I was unsure if this type of training would be right for me but Petko took the time to listen to my goals and abilities and designed a program that perfectly suited my strengths and focused on areas I wanted to improve. In 4 months I've seen huge improvements in my overall fitness, physique and confidence. If you're looking for a professional, qualified and supportive PT who goes the extra mile to help you achieve your goals then I highly recommend Petko.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My experience with my PT I would highly recommend Petko to anyone looking for a highly qualified personal trainer, Petko has been great, very supportive, takes the time to get to know you and what your goals are and never makes you feel under pressure. Very professional coaching and definitely will help you to achieve your fitness goals! Just after few weeks I started seeing results and noticed I am getting much stronger and toned. My fitness level is probably the best it has ever been and it’s all thanks to Petko!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good gym but could be a lot cleaner I’m happy with the gym, but I wish they kept cleaning equipment in every corner of the gym as I can tell some people become lazy and doesn’t clean the equipment after them if it’s ‘further’ away.
