Oxford Central member reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very clean The make changing rooms smell really bad, and the showers often just don’t work,(will just be cold). I didn’t realise how bad this place is until I visited a different gym.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Getting worse Showers: or hot water or cold,you dont have a way of regulate the temperature. Space for stretching?? You took all that space to add more machines Too many bikes in the cycle studio and most of them not working properly How a cycle instructor can performance a class with no microphone and not cycling?! You cant hear what he says because the music is so loud!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value When I joined Oxford PureGym, it was the first time I had joined a private gym, and I was a bit skeptical. It was a lot better than I expected! The changing rooms were usually clean, and there was a good range of equipment and classes. The kit all seems relatively new, the displays work well, and nothing rattles as you use it. The staff were helpful and friendly. Only issue would be its size- it is kind of small, and gets busy at peak times, although I liked its small size as it wasn't so intimidating! As with all puregyms, there is no spray/ blue roll for wiping down equipment, which can be a bit grim, but mostly fine. Miss going here- puregym in Birmingham is not as nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money I have been using PureGym in Oxford for several months now, it is fit for purpose, and exceptionally good value for money when compared with competing gyms. It loses one star for the fact that it can be a little overcrowded, and the free weight section would sometimes be unavailable due to a facilities issue (this has since been resolved, and during this time PureGym did offer access to their other gym location in Oxford so that was nice)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient, well staffed, good fun The gym is in a great location for living in the town centre. It's usually very clean and well staffed, with good classes and competent instructors. Can get extraordinarily busy around peak times, but that's not too surprising.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good gym but not big enough Oxford Central was great until it started to become overcrowded. Now it is difficult to get a proper workout done because it is always so busy. Is there any way of limiting the number of members or people allowed in at once? The staff and classes are great. Just wish it was bigger and had more equipment so overcrowding was not an issue!
