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!

Reading Caversham Road gym reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average facility Visited 9 Feb 2019, I have national membership which allows me to visit different pure gym sites and compare them. Good: free parking with no time limit (subject to entering registration upon entry), location relative to the train station & town centre, quality of equipment and spacing of gym over two levels. Bad: there is no plate loaded leg press at all in this facility - the only time I have visited a Pure Gym and this has not been available. There are alternative for training legs - curl machines etc - but no plate loaded machine. There are duplicate machines for training legs such as the seated hamstring & quad curls - but there is no prone hamstring curl machine either. Quantity over variety has prevailed at this gym. Shower temp flicked between tepid and warm - as echoed by previous reviews. Kettle Bells - these are on the main gym floor and the studio. On the main floor there were no pairs other than the 24kg and the 8kg, when I trained. I.e no intermediate weight to train with. Very frustrating having to search for a missing weight in a facility you are unfamiliar with - in the end I gave up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gym is great, ladies changing room is not adequate The gym is great with a wide range of equipment. No queues in the morning when I go on my way to work, free parking and a wide range of classes at different times. However there are only three mirrors with hair dryers in changing room so always a wait after workout to get ready for work. This month I have also had 5 cold showers when there has not been any hot water. Yesterday, only three showers were working and they were all cold/tepid. It seems to take ages for plumbing repairs and no warning on website or email to inform you that hot showers are not available facilities available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only gym i've ever actually been to! I have been a member of the Reading Caversham Road gym since it first opened and it was the only gym i've ever joined that i've actually gone to regularly. The team are lovely, there's lots of really good equipment and the range of classes is excellent - highly recommend I recently added Pure Gym London Wall to my membership so i can go at work, it's exceptionally busy as it's in the heart of the City. Classes are really good as you're guaranteed a space if you book, but the rest of the gym is really busy so maybe not great if you have to stick to a rigid training schedule as the equipment you want might not be available when you need it. Still an excellent gym with great facilities though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gym. But Freezing showers Postives - Signed up a year ago and it's a top notch gym every time. Every thing is there, lots of types of machines and equipment. Great classes and not too busy. Staff are very friendly too. Absolutely love the new massage machines. Negatives - Equipment goes fast. Some is taken to the classes and sometimes you can't find anything. The showers are sometimes freezing. You turn it on expecting warm water and instead you have to stand there hoping that it heats ups half the time. This is at peak time 8pm too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy I’ve been going to PureGym for almost 2 months now and have really enjoyed the experience. There are many gyms that are closer to me but I find PureGym to be best for me. I have been doing well in my fitness journey and would love to carry on this journey at PureGym
