London Aldgate gym reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upgrading my review with still a few niggles My initial review was very negative, based on my first impressions of Aldgate. And while I still feel the same about certain areas, I now feel I can give a more unbiased review, if you like. Aldgate is one of the better serviced gyms. The Cardio equipment is top of the range, which you will not find in others boroughs. I suppose you would call it one of the flagship sites of Puregym. The equipment is always clean, and I personally have not seen any sweat soaked equipment, maybe during peak hours, but that's understandable. The staff are very much on top of things, and you will always see someone cleaning the machines, so well done guys. Compared to Bermondsey and Shoreditch, you are a clinic! I personally found the previous management unprofessional in the way my initial review was dealt with. I was asked for my opinion, so I gave it. What entailed after that was a very long defensive email from the manager of Aldgate Gym at that time. I felt like my review could have been handled with a bit more compassion, instead of full attack mode. Aldgate now has a new manager who rocks! I believe his name is Sam. He is polite, friendly and actually takes the time to see how you are doing and so forth. He's kind of laid back but still professional. The other manager/Assistant with the glasses, I just find ruuuude and has the personality of a piece of wood (Hardwood). He was seen giving me a look of distain that could have turned me into salt, by someone. I saw it too, but didn't think anything of it until someone brought it to my attention He clearly doesn't like me and I clearly don't give two flying figs about him. He is irrelevant and insignificant to my needs at Puregym. My thoughts are that... if you have a problem with a member, you need to learn how to be professional and not be seen to be behaving like a petulant child. It's just not a good look for an assistant manager, whatever he is - Don't care. If he has a problem, then he should talk to me, not behave like a teenager and give me dirty looks. Grow up, I'm in my 50's, not 20 something. I don't have time for that nonsense. Aside from this, I find the PT's are lovely. Chris, Steve and Ryan are my favourite PT's. They have all helped me more than I could have ever imagined and the knowledge they have passed on to me is invaluable. If you need a PT, please remember these names, they are in my opinion the best there! There is Black guy there who is really cool too. I haven't spoken to him, but I had one his spin classes and it reminded me of back in the day when we used to speed skate backwards to drum and bass. Loved it! Their are so many classes to choose from, it would be virtually impossible to not get the body composition you are wanting from them. I'm not really a classes person, but I did like the first pump class with Natalie. The music was awesome and the routine was ok. I tried a few classes after that, like - Yoga - Pilates, but I found the timing was just off. As someone musically inclined, I found it hard to get into a rhythm and I also found that in Pump - Pilates and Yoga, the timing can be too fast, jumping from one move to another, where it could actually cause an injury because of the way it's been constructed. There isn't really a beginner class, it's get with it or get out. But the timing makes no sense anyway. It's off beat. I don't blame the instructors, I think it's just the way they have been taught to do it. 6:30 to 8:45 it's choco block with people. Come 9:00am it's more or less a ghost town until about 11:00 am, so if you want to get on any machines, get there at this time, It's literally like a ghost town. That's all I have. I use the club for my PT course, and occasionally use the Bulgarian bags, but I'm not overly fond of the Atmosphere and I am into Barbell training, not machines, so it really isn't great for me, as for the functional area, it's not so functional. You can't reach to do pull ups and the squat attachments are heavy and very hard to use, as they are bent out of shape. If you want a cool functional area, you must try Shoreditch. Many, (not all) of the members at Aldgate are kind of uptight and entitled. Some of the women in the changing rooms are unbelievable, the way they leave their nasty towels everywhere. The towel bin is just 5 -10 feet away, but no, they behave like it's the cleaners job to pick up their mess. No home training. St Pauls Puregym is in the City too, but the people that go there are just different. They are really cool, and the manager is lovely, Irish woman. Love her! Aldgate, different substance altogether. I couldn't work there, my spirit would die. I take my hat off to the PT's who do. So, I guess I'm the wicked witch of Shoreditch, but what can you do. It''s my opinion. I wouldn't recommend paying for Aldgate, unless you upgrade it for better benefits, then you don't feel like you are not getting your monies worth, but the classes do make a difference. I'd say, Aldgate is one of the best, for classes. So mixed review, but you take what you can from it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Gym but some improvements I have been going for a few months now and it is the best gym I have been to where I don't feel uncomfortable to be in. The classes are great and the space/location is good meaning you will always be able to use equipment. However, the air con was broken for many weeks and now it is 'fixed' it is still like walking into a sauna especially in the cardio area where you need the air con the most! - This needs to be improved but feedback is not listened to. Having a Stairmaster would also be good as it seems most gyms have this now but not this one.
