Purley member reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enough for the price I like how the space in the gym has been used more effectively and the added equipment was well overdue, however additional weight plates are needed to go with the extra equipment e.g. squat rack. Also, I don't think the cross trainers should be facing the frosted glass. All gyms are busy in their peak times, that's to be expected, but I think a cap needs to be set on the amount of members; its by far the busiest gym I have ever been a member at. Its not nice having to join a que to use something or feeling pressured to rush as people are waiting for you to finish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good gym but the layout is awful! There was nothing wrong with the old layout of the gym and they have now decided to chnage it and put 6 bits of equipment into a tiny couner of the gym so you can hardly move. Needs to be changed back the amount of people who said they have got it all wrong and want it back the old way. Apart from that it's a good enough gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing gym but new layout is awful Hate the new cardio layout cross trainers in the wrong place facing the windows which is covered up so your staring at a black glass please put back to normal

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Layout The new layout of the gym is awful, the layout use to be fine but now in the last couple of days the stretching area has now been moved and replaced with 6 machines In a tiny space meaning there's no room to actually manoeuvre during the workout. The gym now seems even more packed than before because of how crammed all the machines are.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lacking Gym is almost there. Always too busy - definitely too many members for the space. Great shortage of weight plates, only half the amount needed during peak times. Bearings on the barbells have broken and need replacing. Good gym for cardio, bad if you want to weight lift.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Changing rooms The shower cubicles in the mens changing rooms are often filthy. All Puregym need to do is provide something to wipe the floors of the cubicles with.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Busy Small free weights area which gets very crowded at peak times. Could use space in building better. Cardio area is very well equipped.
