Equipped to succeed

We are a low cost gym but don’t get the idea we have cut down on the equipment to keep the price low. There are more than 220 state-of-the-art pieces of kit we are sure there will be something to suit your fitness needs. Treadmills, cross trainers, rowers and steppers - we’ve got all the gear and loads of ideas to help you reach your targets.

Great functional area

We have a large functional area equipped with a prowler track and plenty of functional kit including tyres. This area also has a light weights area so you have extra space to weight train. Both areas are upstairs and separate to the main free weights area. Plus, the changing rooms have also been improved so you can enjoy a clean environment to freshen up after your workouts.

A fantastic new way to workout

We have a great functional area to workout where includes the following kit:

The rig: release your inner child on this fitness climbing frame designed to increase your all over fitness,

The 15 metre ladder: ideal for sprints, jogging or testing your fitness against the infamous bleep test

The boxes: these plyometric boxes will strengthen your legs and give you explosive power

The battle ropes: whether you swing it, slam it or throw it, the ropes will tone your upper body

Over 50 free fitness classes

And if you enjoy the thrills and spills of working in a group, we have more than 50 free classes available every week. Experiment with the rig to help boost your power, strength and overall fitness. Take a spin on one of our brilliant bikes in our cycle class and receive feedback on your progress as you pedal your way through a mixture of terrains. Fat burn, circuits and cycle are just some of the sessions available when you become a member, but there is so much more!

Joining PureGym is easy

Join online and benefit from a free exercise induction in which a qualified instructor will show you the ropes and give you tips on the best equipment to suit your fitness needs. Check out the members’ area on the site where you will receive special offers and discounts. If you prefer to test the waters first, book a day pass and see what we have to offer.

Manchester Urban Exchange gym reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gym - Lots of equipment and good classes Great gym, lots of equipment and I enjoy the classes. Changing rooms are always clean and equipment is always working. I'd prefer if they stocked more of the anti bac wipes instead of the spray and blue roll as its easier to use and doesn't disintegrate over the equipment. Air sometimes can be a bit muggy but it is a gym after all.
