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 A great gym for an affordable price The 24/7 opening hours are tremendous, and the equipment is all relatively new. My biggest complaints would be the complete lack of care for putting your equipment back. Oh, and I’d love some ab rollers, since we don’t have those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its Always great vibe in there !!! Gym instructors are always there to assist which is great. I love coming in the morning as there is plenty space to enjoy exercise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean & not too busy The gym is nice and spacious with plenty of machines and exercises you can do. I have found the classes not too engaging, and would like to see the staff members be a little more excitable. I have also never had a positive welcome or hello from any of the staff that work on the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really looking forward to my next visit! Plenty of open space and free equipment to use. This gym is huge. Some of the other more expensive ones in the city centre are fairly claustrophobic and busy. Great atmosphere and can’t wait to see my progress.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cross trainers and bikes need a good clean Equipment is dirty and the smell of sweat is overwhelming. Bodytrax doesn't always work, seems like a slow internet connection makes it take ages to update.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great gym with a lot of equipment! A great gym with a lot of equipment, however sometimes it’s too busy (Mondays are possibly the busiest) and can be difficult to find a machine. The app is especially useful, helping me to keep track of how often I visit the gym, as well as showing how many people there are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok, but messy Gym seems very messy, weights and equipment all over the place, wasting a lot of time trying to find two dumbbells of the same weight. Could do with more overview and tidying up.
