Work out 24/7 in Cardiff

We know you have a busy lifestyle and that’s why our doors are open round the clock, so whether you’re a night owl or an early bird you are free to work out whenever you like. All of our gyms are remotely monitored, too, so you can exercise knowing that you are always in safe hands.

No-contract memberships

There is nothing more irritating than paying for something you no longer use. What are we talking about? That’s right, contracts! Some gyms continue to make you pay even when you wish to leave, but at PureGym the opposite is true. We have contract-free memberships which you can cancel at any time without paying a penalty.

Top kit to make you fit

However, we’d like to think you’ll stick around for a while because despite being a cheap gym we have more than 220 pieces of the latest top-quality gear for you to sample. Check out our fantastic spin cycles which come equipped with computerised feedback or for a classic cardio work-out jump on our cross trainers, treadmills, steppers and rowers. Our huge free weights area is perfect for bulking up and sculpting those guns. We also have a functional kit including tyres and sleds so you can have fun whilst working out and make progress at the same time

We're top of the class

For those who get a buzz from working out in groups, we have more than 50 free fitness classes every week. Experience the intensity of circuits, boot camp or fat burn, get a kick out of combat or for a slower speed try out our stretch class to help improve body flexibility. If you love working out on bikes free from traffic and exhaust, tackle hills, sprints and time trials in our Pure Cycle class with music to inspire you to greater heights!

Enjoy a sports water

Packed with essential vitamins not only will the sports water help keep you hydrated it will help you perform better, get better results and enjoy your workouts. Add this bolt on for just £6 a month to enjoy 500ml of sports water each time you come to the gym. Adding this to your membership is quick and simple. Once you're a member, all you have to do is visit our bolt on’s page, and click on the bolt on you'd like to add to your membership, and get access right away.

Join online - see you later!

If all this sounds up your street, join online and kick-start your new healthy lifestyle by booking a free induction with one of our instructors who will show you how the equipment works and give you tips on the best exercise to suit your needs. If you prefer to give us a test drive first then book a day pass and check out what we have to help you reach your fitness targets. Once you’re on board you will be entitled to special offers and discounts from leading brands and local businesses in the members’ area of the website.

How to find us

We're based on Wood Street, opposite Cardiff Central bus and train station. There are two entrances to the club: directly up the steps on Wood Street when the Plaza is open and 24 hour access via the entrance at the forecourt to Millennium Station. If in doubt, just look for the big PureGym signs.
BY CAR
If you're coming by car, pop CF10 1LA into your SatNav. You can park at pay & display car parks on Fitzhamon Embankment, Taffs Mead Embankment, Pendyris Street and Park Street, and there’s free parking in the local residential streets.
BY BUS 
All major bus routes will drop you either outside the club in Wood Street or across the road at the bus and train station.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good to be back!!!! YAHHHHHH!!!! The gym is open! Although there is a slight air of trepidation, the gym is gently filling with new and old faces!! Did my first work out yesterday and it was like putting on an old pit of comfy shoes! It felt great! The team at CARDIFF CENTRAL have done a great job at getting the gym up and running, and weirdly everyone seemed to be behaving (no macho idiots off their faces on steroids strutting around) Looking forward now to shifting those lockdown pounds! ITS GREAT TO BE BACK.x

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and clean and quiet Gym was really clean, theres some new machines which is nice, lots of well stocked cleaning stations but then I went at 7.30am so.... Only improvements I can see are to put a cleaning station in the locker rooms( theres a sign asking to sanitize the hairdryer in the ladies but no supplies to do so) and maybe some more advise about how to properly clean the matts by the mirrors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well planned out Overall its really good, but its hard to tell who are the staff that are in charge of making sure cleaning the kit after is taking place. I've seen trainers who have reminded members to clean, implying they're in charge of that at the time, but that same person is then on their laptop a short while later. Just rather inconsistent. Could be better improved. But still a great job nonetheless.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good equipments but needs more cleaning. My home gym is Cardiff Bay but this time wanted to workout in Cardiff central. I really like the quality of the equipments, they are way better then the Cardiff Bay gym....but needs more cleaning some equipments are full of dirt it’s like they have never been wiped or cleaned. Especially this pandemic time we need more cleaning. One thing surprised me that they have only 2 sanitiser stations in the main entrance but they don’t have any in the workout area where people needs more as well as the entrance. I gave 2 stars because of the less cleanness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time back First time back after lockdown, went at a quieter time which app really helps with, most people were cleaning everything after themselves and staff were out cleaning equipment as well, boxes marked out mear the mirrors for working out as well, only thing was the air con didn't seem to be quite as efficient as it normally was, was fairly warm in there still.
