Gym documentation

London Oval gym reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Pure gym experience feedback I feel that more of the weights equipment should be moved into the main weights room, freeing up space for those who want to do their own workouts, on the mats, in the general area. When classes / dual classes are in progress these people, who want to do their own work outs on the mats, can have quite limited space to work out in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Class bunny gym goer Having moved from a community Gym to a big Chain gym I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy my time here as I knew the atmosphere would be very different and not as friendly. It’s definitely a busy place but I go for the classes, get there early and have only had a positive experience. The atmosphere is always a little tense, people on their phones, not talking to eachother etc but that’s nothing Pure Gym can control. The classes themselves I think are Great. Highly effective and they have a nice range of classes that enable me to really work on my whole body, Cardio, tone, muscle gain. The instructors are very pleasant. I go to about 3/4 classes a week when I can and always enjoy them. I do sometimes wish the PT’s had microphones as I’m all about technique/getting it right and it’s often difficult to hear them over the music and would also love them to work a little more on readjusting us or pushing us a little more individually. Also always really appreciate when you are given a clear guide of what weights to use ideally as we go through the class for Pump, Burn it or Body Tone. I absolutely love the Functional Area classes, They are a serious work out but definitely need serious music. I was terrified of the functional areas for a long time. Love it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic gym. Love it. I have been a member of London Oval since it first opened. It’s a great gym, awesome space, with tons of equipment. The PTs are fantastic. They are helpful and knowledgable without being patronising. I find them incredibly friendly without losing their professionalism when interacting with me. The changing rooms in the early mornings are spotless as indeed are the showers and toilets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great space with good classes I only use this gym when in London about once a month, but feel it well worth the money to have this membership for just a few visits as the equipment and variety of classes are great. Just one wish, that you had cycle classes earlier, say 9am. as this is my favourite class, and find I can't do the mid day classes as it mucks up the whole day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little overwhelming I have been going to gyms for years, but smaller and quieter. This one is very overwhelming, always busy. I tend to stick to the classes. What annoys me is that you sign up on waitlist then overnight you may get a space, then if you haven't woken up on time or if you have changed plans, they take that as a cancellation and with new policy that will affect your ability to book classes. I understand that it;s an issue with classes been booked and then no shows, but they need to reconsider the policy when you are suddenly moved from wait list to getting a booking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok gym Im a member for the last couple of years. Prefer fitness classes then gym, especially spinning. The bicycles are always broken. The class is always fully booked but only half of people show up. The other classes could change their routine more often. Every week is the same music, the same warmup and exercises. It’s getting a bit boring if you do the same class every week. The main exercise room is overloaded sometimes. You have to be careful when doing exercises to not hit another person. There is not enough matts for the classes and for people in the gym.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good gym A very good gym , there’s enough machines to use even when busy . 2 problems thou 1 is that the cross striders are to close you bump elbows with the person next to you and 2 is the air con never seems to be cold enough on the hot days that we get

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient Location I have been with pure for nearly a year, plenty of machines and space to exercise.
