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.

Your fellow members tell us we're the best gym in the area and who are we to disagree?!

Manchester Urban Exchange gym reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Attention to detail & culture issues Overall clean & well equipped but often cleaning stations are empty of tissue paper or spray. An ongoing problem is that DBs and plates are all over the place & impossible to locate due to being rolled away anywhere by anyone at any time. I appreciate this is difficult to enforce & it's perhaps a member culture problem but stricter policy is needed. Some equipment is in need of replacement. Staff are almost always friendly, positive & helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice and welcoming environment The gym was great and I really enjoyed it but I would like for there to be more air conditioning on both floors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clean and well services The staff making sure the whole gym is clean are so on their game. Always so clean and well serviced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not enough squat racks Went early in the morning to avoid the rush after work, but there was no availability of squat racks and other free weights. For the number of gym goers at the gym it seems there is not enough free weight equipment. Previous experiences later in the day have proven similar, with very little space and equipment available

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All great, music is way too loud The gym is excellent, the only issues are - the handles for the excercise machines are always missing, you could do with more of the clips. The only irritating pet is the music which is at least twice the volume it needs to be

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always positive is clean and tidy safe environment Today I thought I might get personal trainer to helps me with extra push and mobilise me with systematic visits
Date published: 2021-10-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay/Good Please can the cleaning stations be more frequently refilled (especially with flu season just about to start), over the past month I have frequently not been able to wipe down the equipment due to there being a lack of cleaning fluid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Opening times confusion It seems like the gym is now not letting me enter during core/busy hours. I’ve tried checking the website, I’ve DM’d PureGym on FB messenger and twitter but I’m unable to get a response on what the peak/off-peak hours actually are (they told me to check the website and to stop asking them). So now I’m asking on here because I see that the managers are responding: what are the peak and non-peak times? (Because I’m stood outside and it’s 20:15 and the doors aren’t opening) thanks
