Whether you’re a night owl or an early bird we’re ready and waiting to help you in your fitness mission. However, we also have a discounted off-peak membership from 9pm-6am Monday-Friday and all weekend for those of you who don’t want the freedom of round-the-clock exercise.


We have got big plans for the gym with the introduction of a functional area with a prowler track as well as additional equipment in the free weights area and new equipment for the studio. On top of this we will be making the cycle area bigger and replacing the bikes, whilst doing a full refurb of the changing rooms.


Unlike some gyms, there is no contract when you become a member so that you are totally in control of your finances at all times. Because we are contract-free you can cancel your membership whenever you like and without a penalty!  


However, we’ve got plenty of other reasons to encourage you to stay! Despite being a cheap gym we are stacked with 220 pieces of world-class kit to help you achieve your fitness goals. We also have a huge free weights area and a training rig where you can build up your strength and fitness. Jump on board our cross trainers, treadmills, steppers and rowers, all equipped with computerised monitors to provide feedback on your performance. Whichever part of your body you wish to improve, we have the equipment to help you achieve it.


We’re not just about the individual at PureGym, we also have more than 50 free classes available every week. Whether you enjoy working out with a gym buddy or in the company of others we’re sure you’ll find a class to interest you. For an intense work-out, join the fat-burn class which gives calories a rough ride. Or give your legs, bums, tums and abs a treat in our group sessions which target specific areas of the body. Get your heart pumping and your body moving in circuits, boot camp and cycle or if you prefer a more relaxing form of exercise to improve strength and flexibility, sample our stretch and yoga classes. Fast or slow, our classes are always on the go!


Join online today and you can get your healthier lifestyle off to a flyer with a free induction conducted by one of our instructors who will explain how the equipment works and give you tips on the exercise best suited to your needs and speed. You should also check out the members’ area of the website which is constantly being updated with special offers and discounts from leading brands and local businesses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym shame about the showers Been long term member and love the vibe and space, but showers are not cleaned enough and even the new ones have no temperature control.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gym! I transferred to this gym when I moved to uni and it is much better than my one back home! There is so much space so you can always find a place to workout and there is a wide variety of good kit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok but far too busy I've been a member for coming up to 5 years now. Some of the staff are really friendly and there's plenty of kit. The classes are decent as well. In the past few months its become ridiculously busy, they've definitely sold more memberships than the capacity can cater for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision I made This gym is my happy place, like for real, had a hard day at work? Gym. Had an argument? Gym, somethings just aren't going right? The gym honey! I go almost everyday and smash a good few hours and I've never been or felt happier or confident, my family and friends and even my boyfriend have noticed, it's perfect for chill time and a wind down. I love this place

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with the gym facilities It's been almost a month since I have joined. Very good value for money. Flexibility in membership option is helpful. Great location, good facilities, 24/7 opening make busy professionals make the best out of the gym at their convenient time. A large number of equipments make it easily available for use without having to wait in the queues. Every staff and management are very friendly and helpful. Everyone is eager to help with a smile. This makes me come to the gym regularly. Few issues which could be looked into to make it even better. I think the spin studio is bit crammed, it also lacks cleaning facility such as wipes, hygiene products to clean after every use of the bikes. It could be made as a proper studio with strobe lights etc. and a door. In addition, apart from 2-3 instructors' music and style, I really think the music should be improved. It is difficult to enjoy workout if the music is not well syncronised for spinning. The whole gym should have hygiene products and wet wipes near equipment areas and treadmills/ bikes. Female changing area- the floor, toilets are not always clean.
