Don’t assume because we’re a cheap gym that we’ve cut back on the kit. We have more than 220 top-quality pieces of equipment to suit all needs and speeds, ranging from cardio classics like treadmills, cross trainers and steppers to more specialised gear such as power stations and Olympic weightlifting bars. Or try our suspension trainers to build up strength - resistance is far from useless!  


If flying solo is not for you, we have more than 50 free classes available at our air-conditioned and spacious gym. Saddle up for one of our superb spinning sessions in which you will pedal your way through different terrains and speeds all set to music which is bound to up your energy levels. Circuits, abs, muscle gain, weight loss - the list of top-class group sessions goes on!


We're extremely passionate about fitness at PureGym Newcastle St James. That's why the gym will be packed with everything you need to succeed. As well as over 220 pieces of state of the art gym equipment such as spin bikes by Matrix, vibrating Powerplates and TRX training frames, we're hiring the best trainers in the industry to keep you on track.

Once you join, you'll receive a free induction where one of the team will explain exactly which exercises are best suited to help you reach your goal. You'll also have full access to the Members' area of our website, which contains online training guides and nutritional advice. You’ll also be able to manage your membership on the move using our free iPhone and Android app, which allows you to book classes and scan the QR codes on our gym equipment to watch videos explaining how to use them. Oh, and if being told what to do motivates you, we’ll have plenty of personal trainers.

OPEN 24/7

We know you're busy. That's why PureGym Newcastle St James will be open 24 hours a day. In other words, if you fancy a workout before work, after work, during lunch or through the night we'll be there for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a great place to exercise. With more and better machines, in a clean environment
Date published: 2021-07-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym overall for the price I have been going to this gym for nearly two years now and I have been very satisfied overall. It has all of the essential equipment for both cardio and weight training, which is almost always in good working order. Other gym-goers are polite and generally keep to themselves, and the PTs I have spoken to have all been extremely friendly and helpful. Overall it is a perfectly comfortable and welcoming place to work out. There are a number of simple ways this gym could be improved however. Firstly, while the equipment is function, a lot of it does look and feel quite worn out and in need of replacement or renewal of some kind. The yoga mats, the attachments for the cable machines and the treadmills are three examples which come to mind. Secondly, this gym seems to be a serious problem with etiquette. The weights and dumbbells are never in the correct places and people seem to think it is acceptable to just leave their equipment anywhere when they're finished with it, making it quite difficult at times to find the appropriate weights. I appreciate that I usually come late at night when all of the PTs have left and this problem is probably at its worst, but other Puregyms I go to at the same sort of time do not have this to the same extent. Thirdly, the gym could do with some more equipment. It is in desperate need of a second bench press in particular, as even in the least busy times, it is almost always occupied. A stair master, as is now in other Puregyms, would also not go amiss. I would suggest making room for more weight training equipment by getting rid of some of the treadmills upstairs, quite a few of them don't work and there are far too many (though this seems to be a universal characteristic of all gyms). Finally, I've never understood why there isn't a water fountain on the ground floor, it seems essential. I know there's now a sports water dispenser, but you shouldn't have to pay extra to be able to get water without going upstairs.
