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!

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.

Oxford Central gym reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comments below. I felt physically threatened by a big guy this past week in the weights room. He had been using a bench and moved away for several minutes. He was nowhere in sight so I moved his phone about six inches so that neither I nor someone else would stand on it. I then began to use the bench. He returned and was very aggressive in the words he used to me for moving his phone. I'm not a confrontational person and I felt very threatened by his behaviour. He was also a huge man. After a minute I asked him if he wanted to use the bench and he declined. I went over to him and apologized for any misunderstanding. He was good about it and said he probably over reacted, yet his apology did not lessen the initial seriousness, visible aggressiveness and sense that I felt of the possibility of violence. At many other times in the gym I have always stepped aside if someone wants to use a machine, and I see many others do the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean and fresh. Felt welcoming The gym overall felt fresh, clean and welcoming and safe. The only thing that let it down was the mens lockers, these where hard to lock due to the high amount of use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, clean, friendly More class availability would be good, as I often struggle to get a space on the ones I'm interested in

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The gym is good. I like the equipment, facilities and it has been nice to attend. The only problem I have is the power plate is put in an awkward place. There isn’t enough space directly behind it to do a range of exercises comfortably or without being in the way. It may get more use if placed elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice gym This gym has very good equipment and a large free weights area. Staff frequently walk around and clean machines and benches. Changing rooms are clean. Only negative is that the showers smell quite strongly of drains.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Classes! I’ve been to the body pump, combat and step classes - they are all great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant equipment and good value for money. Good gym as far as equipment is concerned. I go late at night so the 24/7 opening time is very useful. I have attended David Lloyd which is much more expensive and the equipment isn't at the standard of pure gym. I would like boditrax access but the machine does not seem to work past the first time. I'm not sure if this is because it is a premium feature, this should be clearly highlighted if so. I do not take classes so cannot comment but the equipment available lets me do my full workouts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym but busy Great gym, with really good quality machines but very busy. Resistance and weight areas were full and only a few treadmills. This was at the most busy time of 6pm. Worst thing is the air circulation. The gym is very hot and stuffy with stale air.
