London Bow Wharf gym reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Personal trainer behaves like he owns the place I signed up a few months ago as I live nerby and also because I like to use the studio when there are no classes (normally after 9pm). Unfortunately, every time a go there (this is the third time) I cannot use the studio because the personal trainer is always there, chatting with girls or doing his private classes, making sure that no one share the space (for example putting loud music on). So, basically he acts as if he owned the place, as I said. Sorry, but I dob't like this kind of attitude in a gym, especially from staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's great but it should improve. I signed up a few months ago, started with pilates classes and now I am doing personal training too. I love the gym and its location as I walk through the canal to get to it. It would be nice if they added more of the popular classes as they are always full and it is hard to get a spot. Specially for pilates and Yoga, the teacher is amazing. Really nice gym, all the equipment is new and the staff quite friendly, if you find them! Very convenient!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too bad I signed up to PureGym a year and two months ago. I went to Limehouse before. The Limehouse is far much better but I moved and the Bow Wharf is the nearest to me. Sadly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok but could use more regular maintenance The gym is generally quite good but needs some more regular maintenance. Some machines do not have pins to set the weight, one of the rowing machines has a faulty screen and the weighted rowing machine has a broken and very unstable seat. Downstairs one of the walls (where the sledge is) is crumbling onto the training area. It is the only gym in the area and experiences a high volume of visitors at times, hence some more frequent maintenance would be appreciated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good treadmill view over the canal Only one (warm) water point on first floor I'd have a second point downstairs cold preferably

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright airy gym The Bow Wharf gym is bright and airy with vast windows letting in natural light, and for myself, ease of parking. The only downfall is the small studio space, which can be overlooked by anyone passing through. It used to be worse with the fixed weights in the same area. They can pack too many people in for classes and what with the use of equipment ie steps, weights, can make for a very uncomfortable class! It's actually the classes that I sign up for which motivates me to attend, followed on by use of gym equipment. Sadly, there aren't enough classes for certain times of the day, or it can be booked up pretty quick, unless you pay a premium on top of course! Mats & equipment can get pretty overused with signs of sweat, shoe prints etc but nothing (sanitizer?) to clean with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good gym, but rubbish free weights Good for most things, but the free weights area is tiny in comparison to most PureGyms. The actual dumbbell are a weird shape too. They are longer than normal, so the weight is distributed poorly. Also it has a small, mixed chinging room than some people may not like. All the rest of the equipment is generally pretty good, it's always tidy (not like the Shoreditch PureGym) and has good parking.
