London South Kensington gym reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed at all! Ok, I haven't been to the gym for a long time, but what a welcome back I had! My towel was yellow not white. The weights were every where, almost lost interest to look for the right ones. Few things still not working, a couple of TV screen not working properly, the water to fill up the bottle wasn't working properly. And about that, since when someone working out doesn't carry a bottle, in that case, why you don't have a normal tap on your water system? You only have the system to drink directly to the tap. On the free weight level, one side as been closed for probably 2 month now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Something is always needs to fix Since LA Gym became Pure Gym all equipment and facilities from time to time not works properly. Especially conditioning system and drinking water supply. Fountains very seldom has enough pressure, so you can’t drink water directly. When fountains has no pressure at all staff offer water from jars, but only once in a several weeks plastic cups were provided. Sometimes conditioners doesn’t work at all, or vise versa you can’t stay under cooling fan because of too strong and too cold airflow. Two sets of free weights on upper floor is far less than enough. Sometimes bathings in men toilet blocked. Sometimes all of them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fix the water fountain The water fountains have been broken for months - low pressure - and the company appears to be refusing to release the money to fix them. The very nice team in S Ken have been as helpful as they can be. It is basic to provide water 100% of the time in a gym. Thinking of moving to a new gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the classes! The classes are incredible - in particular all of Becky's classes (life-changing!) and Angela's step class. The bodypump class requires a few more weights to be available so that we are not fighting over them. The gym has definitely improved since registers have been taken prior to classes to prevent them from being overcrowded but a designed place to queue would be useful. The cancel time of 4 hours is perhaps too long - in particular when booking a morning/midday class. Changing the cancel time to 3 hours would be a lot better!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is an average gym. Becky Crawford is the only reason I go here. The other lunchtime classes are also good but the quality definitely depends on which instructor you get. It used to be a great place to work out but has lost its spark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best gym for comparison to others I’m always happy for pure gym since I joined excellent, staffs are so approachable and helpful

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great instructor, poorly managed gym Love the instructors but all our classes are over full and always start late. 3 of 5 classes/week have to end abruptly so there is no stretching. This is not acceptable. Class should be 45 minutes and often is between 35-40 minutes. There needs to be better planning especially around classes with equipment to allow a full class with stretching and be finished in time for the next class to start. Also people that are not booked need to wait until all booked and wait list cleared attendees are in the room and have equipment.
