Work out 24/7 in Cardiff

We know you have a busy lifestyle and that’s why our doors are open round the clock, so whether you’re a night owl or an early bird you are free to work out whenever you like. All of our gyms are remotely monitored, too, so you can exercise knowing that you are always in safe hands.

No-contract memberships

There is nothing more irritating than paying for something you no longer use. What are we talking about? That’s right, contracts! Some gyms continue to make you pay even when you wish to leave, but at PureGym the opposite is true. We have contract-free memberships which you can cancel at any time without paying a penalty.

Top kit to make you fit

However, we’d like to think you’ll stick around for a while because despite being a cheap gym we have more than 220 pieces of the latest top-quality gear for you to sample. Check out our fantastic spin cycles which come equipped with computerised feedback or for a classic cardio work-out jump on our cross trainers, treadmills, steppers and rowers. Our huge free weights area is perfect for bulking up and sculpting those guns. We also have a functional kit including tyres and sleds so you can have fun whilst working out and make progress at the same time

We're top of the class

For those who get a buzz from working out in groups, we have more than 50 free fitness classes every week. Experience the intensity of circuits, boot camp or fat burn, get a kick out of combat or for a slower speed try out our stretch class to help improve body flexibility. If you love working out on bikes free from traffic and exhaust, tackle hills, sprints and time trials in our Pure Cycle class with music to inspire you to greater heights!

Enjoy a sports water

Packed with essential vitamins not only will the sports water help keep you hydrated it will help you perform better, get better results and enjoy your workouts. Add this bolt on for just £6 a month to enjoy 500ml of sports water each time you come to the gym. Adding this to your membership is quick and simple. Once you're a member, all you have to do is visit our bolt on’s page, and click on the bolt on you'd like to add to your membership, and get access right away.

Join online - see you later!

If all this sounds up your street, join online and kick-start your new healthy lifestyle by booking a free induction with one of our instructors who will show you how the equipment works and give you tips on the best exercise to suit your needs. If you prefer to give us a test drive first then book a day pass and check out what we have to help you reach your fitness targets. Once you’re on board you will be entitled to special offers and discounts from leading brands and local businesses in the members’ area of the website.

All major bus routes will drop you either outside the club in Wood Street or across the road at the bus and train station.

Cardiff Central gym reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent Too often the hand sanitiser at the entrance is empty. On one occasion it was empty for two days running. Too many of the antibacterial wipe stations are empty. On one occasion I had to walk from the other side of the gym to find a wipe to clean the equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clean and great atmosphere I really enjoyed my time today. I was a member of this gym a few years ago. The looks of the gym has changed a lot however the attitude of the gym remains the same. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thanks for introducing the MASK but was anxious Thank you for introducing the mask in the gym, but seen some members still don’t bothered to put their mask and don’t keep their distance at all. Yesterday, when I was working out people chose to workout too closely without their masks on and this made me feel very anxious. I gave one star for No wipes or hand sanitiser available in the gym for a week. Overall I like the gym and the staff members.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic experience First of all it feels really good to be back and running in the gym. Puregym has ensured everyone a safe and sound environment to workout in. The cleanliness has been top class. Staffs are also pretty proactive to make sure everyone is following the social distancing and also checking upon people to ensure they are wearing there masks inside the premises of the gym. I am pretty much contented about the overall functioning of the gym.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing There are still members not wiping down equipment, not social distancing, not wearing face masks etc. I understand it is hard for the staff to police but it is disappointing to see selfish behaviour from other members for those of us who love the gym and want to do all we can to ensure it remains open and everyone stays healthy. *The gym had also run out of anti-bac wipes during the time of my visit, although blue roll was available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean and easy to keep your distance. First time wearing my mask between workouts, not much of an issue. Glad to see most people complying with the new rule. However the cleaning stations no longer had wet wipes which I found easier to use than the paper towel and spray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No hand sanitiser or wipes I’m happy with the gym but I’m very disappointed about the cleaning stuff. Last 3 days non stop I have been looking for the hand sanitiser and every time I run up to it it’s empty! and same with wipes was running everywhere to wipe the equipment before and after use but none was available. They have blue paper and spray available but they are useless and I don’t think people would spend the time to clean the equipment properly as it’s hard to clean with the paper towels. When the COVID cases are rising and we don’t have any safety equipments this is making me sacred of going to the gym. I didn’t feel comfortable to train today at all, I was so scared to touch every equipment.
