Welcome to Portsmouth

Embark on a fantastic fitness adventure at our great-value gym in Portsmouth where everyone and everybody is welcome.


Portsmouth is one of the world’s most famous naval bases and you certainly won’t want to miss the boat at PureGym because we cater for all fitness levels whether you’re dipping your toes in the water for the first time, have been navigating the exercise ocean for a while or are an experienced sea dog who knows all the tricks of the trade.


To make your busy lifestyle more manageable our doors are open 24 hours a day, meaning you can pop down for a work-out whenever you feel like it - and in safe surroundings too. 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.


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.
