Not everyone likes to work out alone so if you love to exercise with a gym buddy or in the company of others we offer more than 80 free fitness classes every week. Personal trainers will also give you that extra bit of motivation if you find yourself starting to flag! For high-intensity sessions try out fat burn, boot camp, Les Mills or circuit, but if you prefer to concentrate on flexibility give pilates or stretch a go to lengthen those tight muscles. For something different, unleash your aggressive side in our martial arts-inspired combat class in which you punch and kick your way towards a whole new physique.

Southampton Central member reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Greatly improved since refit Massive improvement to the free weights section. Still a little unorganised but much of that is down to people throwing equipment around, not replacing dumbells etc. The standard. Much more space than before however. Upstairs feels huge and slightly under utilised. Could squeeze more kit up there. Generally I stick to early mornings as evenings can be cramped. Otherwise satisfied with what I have here. Good job on the refit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best in Southampton I used to love coming to this gym in the mornings before work but so many times the water in the showers is either cold or stopped completely. Not ideal when you’ve got to go to work sweaty. Otherwise it’s a good gym and decently priced. Understand things go wrong but no info that they are trying to sort the issues. Stick to Bitterne or Shirley.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for the money but same problems Equipment seems fine and classes seem fine. However, 3 times now I've walked out after waiting to get on exercise equipment. I'm there to exercise, not stand around waiting - Same as every other cut price gym though

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for the price I been member of PureGym for nearly 3 years in that time I have visited probably about 10 different locations and Southampton isn’t the worst but also isn’t the best. The best equipped is Portsmouth gym and I wish Southampton had the same equipment especially when it comes to leg machines! Also staff at the gym is not very friendly and they always chat to their friends but if a stranger they will make you feel uncomfortable. In overall is ok for the price.
