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 2 out of 5 by from Support I think the instructors should be going round and telling people if they are using the equipment properly and if not let them know the correct way

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Probably the best Pure Gym in Manchester It can be busy, even late in the evening. Another squat rack and olympic bench would be great. I'd love to see the punch bags returned as well, but overall I think this is the best Pure in Manchester, best atmosphere and best range of equipment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great classes... When you can actually get in! I've been coming to PureGym in Urban Exchange for a while now and have loved it. However, recently it's been quite frustrating to get into the classes when you're booked on. Just yesterday, I had two classes booked one after the other, and ended up missing the second class due to making my way over and it had already started and all spaces were taken up, which meant I was left with a class suspension due to missing it. The class timetable isn't as good as it used to be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place to go to workout. It's a decent place to go if your looking to workout, each machine has a demonstration of how to use it, which is very helpful. Vending machines have good stuff in too,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its a good gym but it can be even better generally it’s okay but there's such a mess on the floor. dumbbells and plates are everywhere. there is cctv so they should keep eye on it and warn people who dont put weights in its place

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym, but overcrowded at times Really like the gym and think the facilities are mostly very good quality. My only real grievance is how busy it gets considering it’s not a massive gym, which means it can get very crowded at peak times, with long waits for machines. It also means the ladies changing rooms can be chaos - I frequently struggle to find a free locker and decent space to get changed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Good The gym facilities are good. The shower area in the male changing needs repair as all the towel hooks are broken and also the trays within the showers to leave shampoo etc on. Please can these be addressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large. Lots of basic, well maintained equipment. It would be great if there were more TRX straps available.
