Rated 3 out of 5 by from Always room for improvement Hi Pure Gym If you honestly would like to improve the gym then you should consider the following to match the pricey gym membership that seems to keep going up at bow wharf. A complete set of attachments for each of the 3 cable machine - members are currently having to ask or borrow attachments from other cable machine stations; an investment in this would make life much easier for all of us. A cable rowing machine (the one where you can add various attachments) to work out the back - I know there are other machines to workout the back using a rowing motion but this would be a good addition. A calf press machine - i don't think many people use the current calf machine where you have to add on the plates. A bench upstairs - just tape a box around it so it does not get moved too much and add a sign somewhere not to carry any weights on the stairs. I will be happy to add another review if I see any of the improvements suggested : )

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great use of space First time being back in the gym since March so was pleased to see good safety procedures implemented. Unfortunately, I did see a man spit on the floor so told a member of staff straight away. She was really friendly and swiftly spoke to the person. Apart from that and thanks to the gyms frequent cleaning stations the overall hygiene and cleanliness is good. Personally speaking I'd like more weights/ isolation machines in place over the cardio equipment but understand others will want otherwise. I'm not giving full stars as I think the monthly price is a bit steep given the small size of the gym and the likely wait for equipment use. Overall quite pleasant though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the price for what you get Been working out for the past year after a long break, and switched between 4 different PureGyms due to locations. Before that was in 2 other PureGyms while in Uni. So I’ve been coming for about 3 months to Bow Wharf. Gonna break it down into things I care about when choosing gyms in comparison to other PureGyms I’ve been to. Overall 2/5 Great gym.. If you live close by and can visit outside of peak hours. Size 1/5 It’s really really small. I thought I prefer small gyms, but its super small. Because of that, if you’re not on a treadmill upstairs, you gonna be waiting to use any weights other than dumbbells. I prefer keeping my workouts under an hour as I have a routine and want to stick to it. Theres literally no point of going if gym capacity hits 30/51 in the app. I end up waiting for 10-15 mins before I can use anything and then the same between the exercises. Some might think, well go do something else while you wait. Well, for one, I wont finish my planned workout after, it’s still going to take long time to finish everything, theres a chance someone might take over the equipment. On a bright side, if you are lucky and can attend at around 10-11 or 14-1500, lucky you, gym is empty, everything available and its a pleasure to be there. Equipment 2/5 Again, so small that you cant fit much in there. One bench press + smith machine. And to be honest, for the past 3 months, I’ve seen free twice. Other times, it’s almost always the same people on it. If you’re into basic workout, stretching, some running, it should be great. Other than that, theres not much. One bench, one smith, few squat racks, few bars, and some machines upstairs. Changing Rooms 3/5 Im never too fussed about changing rooms and showers, as I aim to go to the gym thats close by to my place. The only down side is that it’s a shared changing room. So you’d probably want to come dressed for workouts and drop your bag in a locker. Which is not so convenient if you’re coming after work (they have cubicles you can use to change if you need to) Never used showers in there but from the looks of it, seem to be fairly clean. People 3/5 Mostly everyone seems to be good and friendly. People clean up after themselves (most of the time) and in general seem to be good. You will find odd ones out on different days (on the phones, not sharing, ignoring, rude). Price 1/5 If I could I’d switch without hesitation just because of the price (thats the only gym close by). For 36.99 I would expect a bigger gym, more space, better changing rooms. Coming from Aldgate gym for few £ more a month, I was shocked to see it being so small, packed and with so little equipment. Covid 19 / Cleanliness 4/5 Cant complain about that. Many cleaning stations, equipment being cleaned regularly, floors marked with tape. Not giving 5/5, simply because its expected at this point in time and not everyone are using the cleaning stations. Final words If you’re more into aerobic workouts, bodyweight exercises, and generic lifting, live close by, and can attend around peak hours, definitely great gym to join and price is good. If you want to lift heavy, have a planned workout that you want to stick to, can only come around peak hours, you can probably find something better. I’d probably enjoy this gym more if we had to book workout slots to avoid so many people. I’m reconsidering this gym now, if it was up to £30 a month, I'd be happy with it. Looking into other gyms around, investing into own equipment or travelling a bit further to a better PureGym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My local gym Very nice gym. Very clean. Has everything I need to use. And I also like that it isn’t too crowded and over packed. It’s always quite empty. I feel really comftable working out here as a women as I don’t feel intimidated or like I am being stared at by men. Something I know other women would like to be reassured about x

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overcrowded The capacity for this gym feels far too high, as the gym floor is only small, and often feels overcrowded. Added to multiple groups of people working out together, it makes social distancing practically impossible.
