Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gym and very clean Ive been going for two weeks now already seeing results

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Improvements definitely needed This gym is a nightmare to use at busy times, due to lack of space. It even is difficult to find space to do floor-work at less busy times which is really frustrating. There is not enough floor space as it is to workout, with a few mats for stretching upstairs and a small floor space which is mostly being used for weights. There is way too many treadmills and cardio machines than are needed! It is really frustrating to come to the gym to spend ages waiting for equipment or not being able to get a mat to use, with people stretching even by the stairs! The equipment isn't too bad but I don't think since I have used the gym for 2 years the equipment hasn't been updated. It would be good instead of keep getting people to sign up to a packed gym, it could expand into the empty unit next to it like the larger Town and Bitterne Gyms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Gym with everything you need I have been a member of this particular gym for about 8 years, back then it was LA Fitness. I train early mornings and there is always ample equipment to use and help on hand from staff should you need it. Would recommend this to anyone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality gym I am happy at pure gym Shirley but it would get a 5* if the air conditioning in the studio worked all the time. It would also be helpful to have a manager there more often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent gym Ive been going to pure gym shirley for about a year and a half if not more. Great atmoshere, clean,excellent equipment and classes. Personal trainers are brilliant. Loads of knowledge and friendly. I work my class bookings around my hospital work. I love spinning and abs. I used to go to circuits and fat burn when I can. Aj,Marc, and Ian have been very motivating since ive started. I Even had a go at the running club. Ive started going to Nath, Leah and Connors lessons too. Which Im enjoying. Thank u for all the help. I need to sort my diet next as I eat on the run on 12 1/2 hour shifts
