BETTER SPACE COMING SOON

PureGym Oxford Central is currently getting a brand-new face lift but the gym will remain open as usual. Over the next few weeks we'll be improving this gym to provide a new and improved experience with the functional area, studio, cycle studio and free weights area all getting a brand new look and feel!

GREAT KIT

Oxford central has all the kit so you can enjoy more optimised workouts to reach your fitness goals. You can conquer your strength goals in the large free weights area where we have loads of kit, including benches, an additional Olympic lifting platform and squat racks. 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. Or how about a trip through different terrains on our spin cycles equipped with computerised monitors to highlight your progress? 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.

KEEP HYDRATED WITH SPORTS WATER

If you want to make the most out of your workouts and get better results you need to keep hydrated and what better way is there to do so than with our sports water. Available in 6 fruity flavours and packed with essential vitamins the sports water can be yours for just £6 a month. To enjoy 500ml each time you visit go to our bolt on’s page and get access right away.

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!

JOIN OUR LOW-COST GYM

We’ve got so much to offer at PureGym and for such a great price too. If you like what you’ve been reading then join online and book a free induction with a qualified instructor who will show you how the equipment works and advise you on the best form of exercise to suit your needs. If you prefer to give us a test run then book a day pass to see how we can change your health habits for the better. Once you’re a member take advantage of special offers and discounts from leading brands and local businesses in the members’ area of the website.

Oxford Central gym reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such an easy gym Signed up a month ago and its been simple and enjoyable

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Class too busy - not enough equipment I regularly attend the Body Pump classes - they are just over subscribed, not effective register of those who are booked and those who just turn up. Classes over run so back to back classes are delayed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oxford central Signed up for a year. Love the classes of Agnes, Caroline and Joice. Would love more Zumba with Joice

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spin Class Feedback Love the spin classes here but a piece of equipment feedback: I have noticed that the tension knobs on the bikes are not consistently working. Often times the teacher will say to do two turns to increase tension, but on several of the bikes the knobs are so sticky that it feels like going from 1 to 9 in a half turn. I would have left this comment in the comment box but I couldn't find it anymore. Thanks!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's alright. Locker rooms stink unlike any other gym. No free weight machine even after paying over £20 a month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cycle Some bikes on the cycling room need work, pedals without straps. Please check the people in the classes. Bodypump had to many people, no space, no equipment. Is not nice to send people away but even worst to be unable to perform right. Overall, all the teachers and instructors are very good. Thanks for the extra incentive

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hygene issue not fixed The smell problem in the men's changing rooms in the Oxford City Pure gym has been fixed. However, the hygene issue has not, despite repeated complaints. I have taken pictures to evidence this. All other areas of the gym, the corridors and the main gym area downstairs is being cleaned on a very regular basis, as staff can be seen wandering around and vacuuming these areas. How can it be, that, in terms of hygene, the most sensitive areas such as showers and the locker room are seemingly being neglected?!
