You’ve just joined PureGym! Welcome to our community of over 1 million members where Everybody is Welcome. We want to ensure that every member gets the best possible start. That’s why we have created our Let’s Get Started programme, which will get you ready for your first workout in 3 easy steps.

By now you will have received your PIN by email and SMS. Your PIN gets you into your gym through the Access Pods (we'll explain that below) and logs you into your App and your member's area on our website. Just like the bank, your PIN is unique to you, so please keep it safe.

You'll find automated Access Pods in all of our gyms. The simplest way is to use Gym Access QR code in our App, or you can enter your PIN in the keypad and press OK.

Once the Pod opens, just step in and the second door will open.
