London Ilford member reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gym I signed up to this gym over 2 months ago, having moved from another fairly known branded gym and leisure centre. No regrets, whatsoever. For the price we pay, this particular centre, offers a lot to its members. The pluses: The personal trainers/staff members I see are almost always smiling, and from my experience, are very approachable and helpful. I started attending a few classes this month; they're a fantastic way of challenging some of the more 'sleepy' muscles. Good for me - because I tend to focus on cardio more, the classes have been challenging, yet fun and different. I am definitely seeing and feeling some good physical changes. The other pluses worth mentioning are the cleanliness of the centre (including the showers and toilets) and the space available to users to carry out their activity. I don't use the ladies only area so much, but it's a great and valued addition and I believe serves the local (female) population well. I think it's great that there are also some ladies-only classes. The minus: As one reviewer pointed out; the lockers. I actually put this on a card once and to me, it seemed as though some action was taken. Nonetheless, there can still be improvements made, especially as some lockers do not work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, but some things need to be improved I've been a member of this gym from almost the opening day and seems that some of the things do not change... just getting worse. Like lockers! many of them are being left overnight with a padlock. At the peak time sometimes you have to wait until you get a chance to use a locker to store your stuff...and that is annoying. Gym floor is there any age restriction? sometimes looks like teenagers come to the gym to play around and just wasting time of others while waiting for equipment. Air conditioning is so cold sometimes. You have to look for a space that you are not under the AC unit as you can get ill straight away. And staff... not really approachable...only few of them that makes you feel comfortable around. But overall the that 24/7 works very well! and if you use the gym off peak or late at night you can really enjoy the workout....plenty of space and good environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obs I can't agree more to a last review :) the only 2 PTs that ever smile or welcome you as if they're actually happy to see you is Georgina and Paul... :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First 2 months I joined 2 months back. Everything is good in Gym 2 Suggestions 1. Can we have steam batch facility in gym? 2. There are no mirrors in front of all equipment. Can we have to check our forms while working out?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PTs What's with ongoing turf war between the PTs? Members don't want to know personal issues causing PT transfer/termination. There is a reason members attend classes or train with a preferred PT and no amount of advertising should change that. Not everyone is able to train solo and having a class with a PT of our choice is the best solution for many.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Always messy I've been using PureGym all around London and sad to say that Ilford branch is the messiest of them all. There is a real lack of gym culture. Every morning the free weights, barbells and plates are all over the floor, with PTs walking around them. I know it's not their job (they are just freelancers), but one would hope that we are all in it together and strive to make this a nice place for everyone. Luckily, there is a member of the gym whom I see putting the weights back every morning - he should be rewarded with a free membership! On another note, most mornings, there are around 47-53 locked padlocks on lockers in men's changing rooms, and around 8-12 guys on the gym floor. You do the math.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stain to perfection Over the past 7 months as a member the most irritating area is the ladies changing rooms, lockers in particular; being occupied without a padlock.. Equipment left post workout,especially in the studio is nothing new.. happens at every gym, but since everyone here praised PTs for they're friendliness, dedication and expertise is it fair that they should clear up after a lazy bunch using the space/Equipment ? Inevitably PTs do deserve recognition as I do have other gyms to compare. I might mention a few but combined- it's a great team! Air conditioning needs improvement.. gets stuffy + b.o. not a good combination
