Newport Gwent member reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jinxey from Good gym but sometimes missing the basics I’ve been a member of this gym since it opened and was amazed with how great it was when it first opened, since then standards seem to have slipped, and whilst it’s still a great gym, basic things are often missed. Cleanliness seems to be at a very high level only, with equipment and the changing rooms often showing poor signs of maintanance and cleanliness. One locker in the male changing rooms has had a protein shake spilt in it for months, so I can only imagine the lockers are never cleaned. One treadmill had a random screw in the cup holder for weeks and bikes/treadmills are often dirty. The gym itself is excellent value for money, however as a result is rammed during peak hours meaning it’s hard to get a decent work out as there is often not enough equipment unless you’re doing cardio and so you often have to plan work outs around this. The equipment itself is good, but it would be great if there was more, however I appreciate there is only so much you can fit in! I still love this gym, however it would be great to see just little improvements such as a bigger focus on cleaning and extra facilities such as more than one of popular equipment, mirrors and lockers on the gym floor upstairs. It would also be great to build a sense of community and get to know members.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Karijadee from Classes are very de-motivating for beginners Signed up for a legs,bums and tums class. When I arrived I told the instructor that I’m new and it’s my first time in the class, he laughed and said ‘me too’. No indication of help on what equipment I needed or where to place it. I gathered by looking at everyone else I needed a step box, mat and weights bar. I didn’t know how to put the step box together, I didn’t know it was different heights, physically struggling and confused and no help from the instructor who could see me because I was the only one fidgeting. There was no beginners steps it will full hardcore into the workout, but no option for me when I was struggling to keep up. After 25 mins I was physically struggling but again no option or help or guidance on different moves I could do or reassurance that it’s okay that I’m tired. I ended up having to stop and run off and was sick immediately into a bin. I’m embarrassed,ashamed and feeling really de-motivated. I feel like I can never return to a class again. I just wish there was support from the instructor and wish he could of gave me different steps when he could see I was having difficulty. I shouldn’t of been pushed to he fact of being sick. As a young girl, walking into a class on my own wanting to improve my health it’s nerve wracking as it is just showing up, but having to run off because I couldn’t feel my legs and I needed to be sick... I just wish there was a beginners option, you can’t expect people to just be able to throw themselves into a 100x max speed work out when they have come from hardly being active. And people like me being ashamed and scared to stop because I don’t want to look bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gymfreak20 from Could be slightly improved Love the gym just wish the classes were repeated for those who can’t make them at set times,the best classes seem to be in the mornings when everyone’s in work

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jess75 from Really great place! I have been going to Pure Gym Newport for over a year now. I have achieved a lot more than I ever thought possible. I never believed that I would be able to feel fit again. I thought it would just be the end of the road for that really. The best thing I ever did was drop in and sign up. Attending your gym has given me a sense of well being and I enjoy most visits!! It gives me a place to take charge again, to relax and be more Jess.. I also love the bike, strange but true !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kevd from Disappointed I signed up to pure gym and had a great induction. Day 2 I decide to get up extra early to attend the cycle class 07:00-07:30 6/10/17. At 07:25 no one has come to take the class. Very demotivating when you are new to the gym.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lolo1 from great value for money I signed up recently and found this gym very good. Though it could do with a bit more accessories like stirrup handles, tricep rope, revolving straight bar, seated row & chinning bar combo, tricep press down bar, cable handle, lat bar etc....There seem to be only 1 set of each so if someone is using it then you are stuck and have to wait. Would be better if there was 2 or 3 of each. Also there is a bicep machine, but would be better if there was also a bicep preacher curl bench. if those things were there it would be excellent and hope this can be considered by the pure gym team. The staff at Puregym Newport is very professional and very friendly!!!
