We know how busy you are and to help you work around your lifestyle we introduced 24-hour access in a safe environment for your comfort. Whether you’re a night owl, an early bird or someone who likes to work off some steam at lunchtime, our doors are always open when you’re ready to work out.


We're upgrading your gym to bring you the latest and best kit so you can get a better workout. We'll be creating a brand new functional zone, which will include prowler track and air bikes. There will also be a new dynamic cycle studio, enclosed and filled with brand new bikes and designed to keep you motivated for longer. You'll be able to go from strength to strength in a bigger free weights area, where we'll be adding new dumbbells and additional Olympic benches. The studio will be upgraded with all new kit and moving into a better location. We'll also be adding in more secure lockers to our changing rooms as well as brand new showers.


No-one likes to pay for things they’re not using, so we don’t impose inflexible deals on our members should their circumstances change. You only pay one month at a time at PureGym and you can cancel at any time without a penalty.


Don’t be concerned that we’re a cheap gym because we have more than 220 state-of-the-art pieces of equipment throughout all of our 230+ clubs set in spacious and air-conditioned surroundings. Jump on our wide selection of cross trainers, treadmills, steppers and rowers, or power your way through a mixture of terrains on our fantastic spin cycles which come equipped with computerised feedback to monitor your progress. We also have a huge free weights area and plenty of fixed-resistance and plate-loaded equipment for all-round work-outs to boost your strength and conditioning.


If you’re the sort of person who needs extra motivation or enjoys working out with gym buddies or in the company of others, we have more than 40 free classes available every week. Burn those fiendish calories in boot camp, circuits or weight loss, overseen by our personal trainers who will be with you every step of the way. For those looking for something a bit different, try out stretch to activate those sleepy muscles or box a go for a great all-round work-out.


We now have state-of-the-art massage chairs in our gym which use heated water to apply constant pressure, at a level you want on the whole body or where you need it most. To enjoy our sports massage chairs, sign up to Extra membership for just £6 extra a month and enjoy the chairs and additional benefits, such as booking classes 14 days early, bringing a friend for FREE up to 4 times a month, multi-gym access and more!


If all of this sounds right up your street, then jump on board by joining online. Once you’re a member you automatically qualify for a free induction with a qualified instructor who will show you the ropes - and a lot more besides! Get a run-down on how the equipment works and receive top tips on the best exercise for you. Check out the members’ area too where you are entitled to special offers and discounts from leading brands and local businesses. If you prefer to dip your toes in the water first then book a day pass and get a flavour of what’s on PureGym’s menu.

Reading Caversham Road gym reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great classes I have been impressed with all the classes included in the basic monthly rate

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overcrowded and no facilitues Coming back to the gym after a few months was a shock. Due to ongoing works inside of the gym, many areas were incessible including showers and loos. There was a large queue to get to one of the two open toilets where people are supposed to get changed. I understamd there are some construction works going on, but leaving people to get changed in 2 toilets is ridiculous considwring the gym is very busy even without the works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just moved to Reading I have just moved to Reading although I have used this gym before when visiting Reading. I have looked at all the local gyms but decided to stay with Pure Gym as I have been a loyal customer in Burnham since it opened. I was going to join The Gym on Oxford Rd as it is closer to my house but the Eliptical Trainers did not have the incline option. I visited Pure Gym Reading and found that at least some of the Eliptical Trainers did have this function. That sealed the deal for me. Sadly, when I attended Pure Gym on Sunday I found that the incline function is disabled. I tried 5 different machines. I just don't get a good enough workout without the incline. I tried to find a member of staff to see if they could enable the incline function but after knocking on every door I could find with 'Private' or 'Office on it I could not find a member of staff. I rang Pure Gym and reported my findings and was told that the Reading Pure Gym manager would contact me. I am still waiting. If the Eliptical Trainers do not have their Incline function re-enabled I will leave Pure Gym and go to The Gym as it is closer to home, cheaper and has the same equipment. I will give it a week to from the manager and then take it from there

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Love the new changes and they are not even finished. Please try and improve the water fountain upstairs it’s never been good since you originally opened. Would be nicer of the studio was sound proofed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous LBT class So I did LBT earlier and just loved the class. Charlotte Johnson was a fabulous instructor giving clear and concise coaching and demos before each section. Charlotte has a sharp focus on timings and technique and it was refreshing to have an instructor who comes around the class to check on posture and performance. Another lovely touch was to have a friendly send off as we left class with words of encouragement. I’ll definitely be back for more. A wonderful friendly club which gives clubs like David Lloyd a run for their money any day. Thanks team Cavisham

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a great gym I joined recently and very happy I did. The whole place has been well thought through, great location in Reading, easy to park, light airy gym and loving the cycle classes. Think I might have to treat myself to a personal trainer at some point too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gym and it’s getting better! Gym improvements are great, my only criticisms would be that currently there’s no mat area(assume this is due to the upgrade going on) and although the new changing rooms are lovely, the shower water is still way too hot and the new hairdryer cords are too short! (Unless you are under 5ft)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Refurbishment happening not good Very noisy, very messy refurbish happening right now. Not much space for training as all surfaces now taken by studio classes. Also from tomorrow 3 weeks with no changing facilities.... not impressed.
