Canterbury Riverside gym reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very active from 6 am onward's! This was my first time at PureGym and even though I wasn't clear on how the equipment worked...they differ from gym to gym it would appear...the young girl who was on duty helped me to understand how PureGym equipment worked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like it - very convenient It seems like a really good gym and I have been going 5 times per week for the last 5 weeks now. All is great, just 2 comments - it would be good to open earlier on a Saturday and Sunday, I understand not going to 24 hour but I think a lot of people would also like to workout early on a weekend too so opening at 6am would be great. Also, in the last week or so there are more people trying to train in groups - especially younger boys. They probably need constantly reminding that they should not be doing this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generally happy with the covid precautions Since you’ve reopened, I’ve been a few times and I’ve been really impressed with the cleanliness, social distancing, cleaning stations, marking out of equipment etc. and I haven’t felt worried about coming to the gym. Unfortunately on this visit, 17/09/2020 around 2pm, I didn’t feel so comfortable. When I arrived, there was a few small groups of guys working out together, which in the latest email I have received from you, group training should still be social distanced etc, and this wasnt the case. I was using one of the treadmills, and one man (who was with two others), was almost leaning/standing upon my treadmill shouting out across to staff members/other gym members all over the gym. He made me feel very uncomfortable, shouting loudly, I have noise cancelling headphones and I could still hear him. It almost made me want to leave. I then noticed that when he was using a machine eg cables, his friends would sit on another machine eg bicep curl whilst waiting for him, when they got off this machine to then actually use another, they did not wipe down/clean the equipment. I can’t say I noticed them wipe down any of their equipment whether actually used for purpose or just as a resting place. I completely understand the complexity/difficulties you are faced in these times and it can be hard for you to monitor all members, but I am normally really happy to attend the gym and am impressed since reopening but on this occasion I felt quite uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need Very good gym, had all the equipment I personally need for a full body workout. Due to current circumstances not as much equipment is available however the gym is very clean and there are plenty of stations to use their cleaning products. The gym can get busy as times but the app makes it easy to ascertain how many people are in the gym and if you are anxious about too many people in close proximity you can look out for quieter times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent First time in this gym and first time I have done any group exercise since lockdown. Started with a yoga class taken by Wendy, excellent class. Felt really safe as hygiene and cleanliness seem to be a high priority.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The gym is very clean and well laid out The gym observes the guidance in terms of Covid restrictions, well organised . Sometimes people bring large bags into the workout area which is a health and safety issue, I feel that needs to be addressed as there are adequate lockers.
