London South Kensington gym reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best gyms in the world I have been a member on off for 7 years, love it for what it is, floor space equipment staff

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not clean Gym is tidy but not clean. Women showers are very smelly. The aircon look doesn't work properly. No management. Very messy group clases. Sometimes start late finish early. Sometimes classes are not the same as it says in the app. Not organise as other gyms. I think gym needs more cleaner and the instructors can't do the same work as cleaners do. Majority of the Instructors are not professional enough to do the group classes. Gym is in a good location and the membership fee is the most expensive one but the service are the same as other PureGym even less quality. The bikes in the spinning room need to be fixed and all the instructors have problems with microphone and music always. The lights are not suitable for the spinning or heat class.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Outdated and upsetting rather than relaxing Speakers in the class are doing weird noises, mats are dirty, the “relaxing” pilates is more like a stretching class, and the trainer’s phone rang while we were cooling down. Quite honestly I appreciate you are not a top gym in the area but surely you should strice for that seeing that the membership fee here is above average. The mats in the classroom are incredibly old, and the quality of the classes are going down madly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Generally good gym but not enough weight plates I think some of the plates for the barbells have gone missing during the COVID lockdowns as there's always a shortage which is not helped by the gym becoming increasingly overpopulated (as noted by many other reviews below). My recommendation would be (1) to purchase more weight plates; and (2) extend the opening times (although perhaps this is constrained by regulatory reasons). Otherwise very good.
Date published: 2021-09-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much cardio equipment and too few squat racks I think men and women are weight training much more than using cardio machines, the equipment available does not reflect this there are countless cardio machines and only 3 (?) squat racks. When I visited the gym squat racks and barbells were very hard to come by while the cardio section of the gym was nearly empty. I would like to see more free weights and barbell stations and fewer cardio machines. The current equipment distribution does not reflect members training styles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My gym Do you know your childhood room when you messed up all and mom got mad? Now you can do it at PureGym SouthKensington where it seems that the members are going to fulfil their childhood dreams of leaving dumbells and all stuff messed around. You can also occupy a machine hanging your clothes at the peg even if you are not using it. I know it is unfair but if you move them you will get scolded by the owner while trainers wander as ghosts
