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 5 out of 5 by from Amazing classes Amazing classes, more air con in spin studio would be good though. Also spin bike interface didn’t work

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Struggling with rush hour s due to lack of equipme Gym needs more equipment ( ropes , bars and holders )
Date published: 2021-08-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quiet and safe, poor cleanliness and availability It was very quiet because I went late in the night so it was easy to be at a safe distance and the equipment was available. However the cleanliness of the changing room was poor, at the cleaning stations around the gym it the detergent was not filled and the boditrax machine was not available. I pay for the plus membership and i was not able to use the plus services.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More cleaning stations please The gym could do with more cleaning stations as the distance you have to walk from near the disabled lift to the middle of the gym floor means many people just don’t bother wiping down their equipment after use. It would be nice if gym staff we available to reinforce this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No social distancing I think it's really irresponsible that all social distancing notices have been removed. The equipment used to have signs on keeping people distanced but now they've gone it's relying on people to be mindful of each other but my visit to the gym today made it pretty clear that some people don't care. I had someone come and use the mat right next to me and was grunting and coughing. It's disgusting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gym, lots of free space and well maintained The gym was well spaced out and felt socially distanced the whole time. There are quieter times and good facilities. My only feedback would be I wish there were some bottles of cleaning fluid left in other areas downstairs so no trips back and forth between each use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s always clean, tidy and great atmosphere I enjoy every time, good environment, friendly PT’s and users
