Equipped to succeed

We are a low cost gym but don’t get the idea we have cut down on the equipment to keep the price low. There are more than 220 state-of-the-art pieces of kit we are sure there will be something to suit your fitness needs. Treadmills, cross trainers, rowers and steppers - we’ve got all the gear and loads of ideas to help you reach your targets.

Great functional area

We have a large functional area equipped with a prowler track and plenty of functional kit including tyres. This area also has a light weights area so you have extra space to weight train. Both areas are upstairs and separate to the main free weights area. Plus, the changing rooms have also been improved so you can enjoy a clean environment to freshen up after your workouts.

A fantastic new way to workout

We have a great functional area to workout where includes the following kit:

The rig: release your inner child on this fitness climbing frame designed to increase your all over fitness,

The 15 metre ladder: ideal for sprints, jogging or testing your fitness against the infamous bleep test

The boxes: these plyometric boxes will strengthen your legs and give you explosive power

The battle ropes: whether you swing it, slam it or throw it, the ropes will tone your upper body

Over 50 free fitness classes

And if you enjoy the thrills and spills of working in a group, we have more than 50 free classes available every week. Experiment with the rig to help boost your power, strength and overall fitness. Take a spin on one of our brilliant bikes in our cycle class and receive feedback on your progress as you pedal your way through a mixture of terrains. Fat burn, circuits and cycle are just some of the sessions available when you become a member, but there is so much more!

Joining PureGym is easy

Join online and benefit from a free exercise induction in which a qualified instructor will show you the ropes and give you tips on the best equipment to suit your fitness needs. Check out the members’ area on the site where you will receive special offers and discounts. If you prefer to test the waters first, book a day pass and see what we have to offer.

Your fellow members tell us we're the best gym in the area and who are we to disagree?!

Manchester Urban Exchange gym reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clean First time back to the gym , all very straight forward and easy to Navigate
Date published: 2020-08-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hygiene is up to government standard. Gym staff following the health guidelines but there’s construction going on main road which make it tedious to drive to gym car park without avoiding traffic delay

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rude staff and dirty equipment Very disappointed with this gym as after months at home I finally made my way back, what a nightmare no one seems to be cleaning after use and the girl who was walking around in her plastic apron just sprayed only parts of things like she didn’t give a care. The personal trainers are also a problem as I observed them using equipment and not cleaning down. If you value your health I’d stay well clear

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good measures in place, sanitiser and distancing Reasonable prices, good facilities and excellent classes
Date published: 2020-08-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from quiet, the gym was quiet again today, but I noted PTS and a manager carrying out the hygene duties. I do feel there could be more hygene stations closer to individual pieces of kit, if the gym was a little busier once you get off a piece of kit to get spray and sanitiser somebody will be using it before you get back to clean it. Its a difficult situation but effort is being made to make it safe so positve thoughts for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant. Glad to be back Went in a quiet time. No problem with equipment. Clearly marked out spaces for exercise. Lots of cleaning equipment and hand sanitizer available for afterwards
Date published: 2020-08-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Staff is on top of it, gymgoers aren't While I do think that the staff is really proactive with cleaning, and the cleaning stations and floor tape are effective, I'm concerned that the gym users are not cleaning after usage which slightly concerns me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Opening times are crap I know your working within government guidelines but whats the point in opening at 6 in the morning.surely if theres less traffic in the gym before 6 then it makes sense to open earlier as there would be less risk...i have to be at work for 7 so opening at 6 is no good for me....this was one of the reasons i joined a 24/7 gym
