Already a member of another gym in Stretford? Don't worry, you can pause your gym membership with us for up to three months until your contract ends. Which reminds us, our gym memberships are contract-free. Tempted? We don't blame you.
Situated in the Stretford Mall on the crossroads of the A56 and the A5145, the gym is situated on the site of the old Riley’s Snooker Hall.
The layby in front of the gym is available for 30 minutes Monday to Sunday. Alternatively, the Centre has both surface and multi-storey parking facilities which is FREE if you stay less than 3 hours. The Centre's car parks operate on a ticketless system where your number plate is captured as you enter the car park which means there is no need to get a ticket upon entry. When you are ready to leave, simply enter your registration number to a pay station if you have exceeded a 3-hour stay. The machine will then calculate your parking charge .

EquipmentI do like the gym but I feel this gym is overlooked when it comes to investment and maintenance. The dumbells stop at 40kg when other Pure gyms within the area go up to 50kg. There is no Hyper extension bench. The floor on the power platform is damaged on the two sides, when you're deadlifting and put the bar down the plates touch the mat then the bar goes at an angle as there is dips under the mats on either side.
The plate loaded leg press also appears to be leaning to one side rather than being level.
However, I think the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Impressive gymInitially joined Pure for just a month while my usual gym was being refurbed. I was so impressed, I never went back to my old gym.
The kit, facilities, layout, accessibility and cleanliness are excellent.
I visit after work on weekdays to use the fixed weight machines and some free weights. Even though it can be busy at these peak times, there's always some kit you can use. I think you just have to be flexible and not restrict yourself to just 4 or 5 pieces of gear.
There's a varying customer base at different levels of ability, but everyone just gets on with their own thing and I've never seen anyone judge others fitness level; a totally non-intimidating environment.

Gym with everything you need and friendly staffI signed up to the gym after stopping smoking and wanted to focus on becoming more fit and healthy. I signed up to Puregym Stretford because it is close to where i live and the added bonus of free parking outside the gym or in the Arndale closeby. The gym is big, well equipped, always cool, toilets are nice and clean, the staff are pleasant and always willing to help. The classes are great and well varied. Jade is a really good at what she does, a great asset to the gym! She makes the classes fun and keeps you on track when you fall behind! All round great gym and i am so glad i signed up. RECOMMENDED A☆☆☆☆☆

Strange off peak timesThe gym is more outdated than other pure gyms, but is older I guess. My biggest feedback are the peak times set for this gym. Even though its reasonably quiet at weekday lunch times, as can be testified by Google Popular Times feature, this is regarded as a peak time. Please review this as this is the only time I'd be looking to move my membership over to this Pure Gym Stretford.

Great hassle free gymI've been going here around 3 or 4 times a week for the last year. It can be really busy at peak times, especially in the weights area, so you often have to adapt your workout around what is available. This is to be expected though. Late morning or late evening are good times to go.
It has everything you'd need in a gym and the atmosphere is relaxed. Never had any hassle or felt intimidated.
Only negative is it just has one flat bench for benchpress - please add a couple more!

Nice Environment / Great ValueOverall a very good gym. The equipment is in a good and clean condition, the majority of staff and other members are friendly and welcoming. The only thing that could be improved is the amount of equipment. Out of peak time is great but if you head there straight after work (between 5/6pm) you often have to wait to use some machines and free weights.

Love this placeFollowing the closure of Chorlton Leisure Centre 2 years go, I was transferred automatically to Hough End Leisure Centre. I decided to give it a go but quickly found that it was small, busy and limited opening times so needed another gym to go to.
As I work in Trafford Park and live in Chorlton I looked at Gym's that I could use on the way home from work.
I heard of Puregym through a couple of guys in work. They were going to the Puregym at Exchange Quay and told me about the price, classes and opening times, so I decided to get a free day pass for Stretford and give it a try before I signed up.
I went along for my day trail and was presently surprised on the easy access by a pin code. No long queues! Good start.
I walked in and saw all the free weights on the ground floor and lots of space. Looked good. I then made my way up the stairs to the 1st floor.
When I got to the top of the stairs I was amazed by the huge floor space, the number of treadmills, resistance machines, cross trainers and more!
Even though it was busy (It was midweek after work) there were plenty of machines free and no one was stood around waiting for kit to use. I was impressed and this brought a smile to my face. I knew this was the place for me!
I did my workout and decided to sign up. I cancelled my Hough End membership and joined Puregym.
I have been coming here for over 2 years now. I love it.
My favourite days to come are Thursday after work (6pm), Friday after work (5pm), Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon, as it is a bit quieter and I enjoy it more.
I have not done any classes but they look good and I am very tempted to try one!
This is my own personal review. I 1st joined a gym when I was 26. I am 44 now and this is the best gym I have ever been a member of.
