We are a low cost gym but don’t get the idea we have cut down on the equipment to keep the price low.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best gym I have attended so far. This gym ticks all the boxes for my requirements, I cannot ask for anything more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good gym love the classes but.. I went to a body tone class on my lunch today and only did about 15 mins workout because the trainer was talking loads, so bit annoyed. Love the other classes though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long standing member Been a member for years but since new lockers etc there is no space constantly having to shift and move to allow people to their stuff never had that problem before and my gyn bag is now too big for the lockers it's a constant fight getting it in and out! Seems refit to incorporate more members is at the misery of older members. Also if the lbt class could change the accompanying music sure it's been the same for over a year and when you attend the class twice a week become tedious and tiresome not inspiring the work out class! Finally can air freshener be put in the toilets as there is zero ventilation and sometimes the smell is unbearable and seems towards changing area!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality gym, needs more free weight room though The best Pure Gym I've been too, the one downside is that there just isn't enough free weights for the amount of members even at 5:45am when I usually go! Sometimes the Squat/power racks are hogged by PTs for their clients (even when the actual rack itself is hardly being used) although admittedly this isn't too frequent. All in all a good gym with clean and well kept facilities, just could do with more of them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of equipment but too many people Urban exchange is the best PureGym I have been to for it’s size and breadth of equipment. However there are too many members and you quite often have to wait a while for machines and benches. And if you want to do a workout with equipment rather than machines there is little or no space to do so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym with a couple of minor flaws I signed up to PureGym a year ago and I am very happy with it with the exception of a couple minor flaws. The prices are great, the facility (I go to Urban Exchange) is well equipped. My challenges are as follows: 1. It is next to impossible to fit into a class, I started off with attending the classes but soon I had to change to using the machines instead as I could never fit into the classes 2. The music in the classrooms is way too loud disturbing the ones outside

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stair machines always broken Generally equipment gets fixed fast but the stairs machines have been out of order for months- no signage so people constantly trying to use them when broken.
