GREAT KIT

Oxford central has all the kit so you can enjoy more optimised workouts to reach your fitness goals.

We also have a functional area where you can do all your functional and bodyweight training, so you have more ways to workout to reach your goals. To help keep you hydrated we have a sports water unit which will have 6 fruity flavours available to choose from.

TOP GEAR WILL DRIVE YOU TO SUCCESS

Don’t be concerned that we’re a cheap gym because we are brimming with more than 220 pieces of the latest equipment throughout all 230 of our spacious and air-conditioned clubs. Love a classic cardio work-out? Step on to our cross trainers, treadmills, steppers and rowers.

We’ve got stacks of fixed-resistance and plate-loaded gear too, plus a massive free weights area to strengthen key areas of your body.

CLASS ACTION AT PUREGYM

If you love to work out with a gym buddy or in the company of others you’re in luck because we have more than 50 free classes available every week. If you’re looking for high-energy classes designed to see off those pesky calories then try out fat burn, boot camp or circuits. And if you love to get your body moving accompanied by top tunes then choose between aerobics and dance. Or if you require a form of exercise at a slower pace but with maximum impact try pilates - it strengthens the parts other classes cannot reach!

Oxford Central gym reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, instructors very friendly and motivate The gym has stayed open despite the Covid-19 scare. To combat people's concerns about using a public space in which germs spread fast, the gym has upped its hygiene routines, adding more sanitation points with industrial scale hand sanitizer and disinfecting sprays and cloth to clean your own equipment, as well as their own cleaning processes. The gym is probably the cleanest place to be at the minute. The instructors are still motivated and friendly, not letting the pandemic distress them or their clients. The cycling class I went to yesterday with Ron was challenging, and a great distraction from the current panic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good equipment, small space. The oxford city puregym has pretty much everything you would need. The only negative is that sometimes it can feel really cramped. For me, I don’t mind smaller gyms as then I can get to know where everything is and find it again easily. For those that like big, open spaces it could be a bit claustrophobic. They did run out of blue roll to clean with, in light of the recent health scare, could do with checking on that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied customer I tried several 24 hour gyms when I was living in Australia and they could learn a few things from PureGym. It’s easy to sign up, there’s a wide variety of equipment (and enough that there’s plenty for everyone even when it’s busy) and you’re not bombarded with staff trying to upgrade you to a premium package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Variety of equipment and not too busy Variety of equipment and usually enough space to workout without disruption.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The gym is nice but missing hygiene The gym is nice with a lot of machines and space to work out, but the hygiene is just terrible, especially in the current situation. Almost nobody is training with towels without even mention some desinfection gel and tissues to clean the machines properly. I’m sure if somebody there has the virus, everybody who visited the gym in the last few days has it as well, fingers crossed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complaint Tried to bring a guest this morning and everything went wrong. Yesterday I asked how to bring a guest to the gym and was provided with the wrong information, which led to an unfortunate chain of events this morning. Today we tried to get in but could not. After 10 minutes of trying and looking for staff a person trainer (PT) then used the access door to get in and we tried to enter. He grabbed us both aggressively and pushed us away and kept shouting we could not enter that way. We tried to explain but he would not listen and kept cutting me off. He was far too rough with people who were just trying to ask a question. Eventually he ran out of breath and listened to us, and then said he would find a team member to help, but my guest had to wait outside. 10 minutes passed with no help so I entered the gym to see what was happening, leaving my friend in the lobby. The staff member in question was in a PT session and was angry that I interrupted to ask him what was going on. He had not helped find anyone, he had not informed us what was happening and basically said it was not his problem. I would have been outside for at least an hour if I had not gone to find him. A second PT was training someone nearby. I asked him for help. He took time out of his session to call up a staff member and get them to come and support us. Eventually we got in to the gym, but this was at 7:30 am, and we had arrived at 6:53, so a lot of time was wasted. It was really disappointing and makes the gym far less appealing to the friend who I was trying to convince to join. He's now not keen on joining and this is annoying. The PT that had made the call and had assisted came up to us in our session and apologised, which he didn't need to do as he had been helpful. I'd like to thank him for this. He understood our frustrations which I am grateful for. However it was not his unpleasantness to apologise for. The other PT ignored us and pretended we were not there. He did his session and left. I get that the PT's are self employed and will obviously care more about the clients that they are training, but they should still care about the average gym user. This guy had a terrible attitude and provided awful customer service. Hopefully this review is actioned accordingly.

Hopefully this review is actioned accordingly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think the gym is great, big open space I think sometimes it's a bit full in there so you don't get as much freedom as you would like, but other than that the gym itself is great
