GREAT KIT

Oxford central has all the kit so you can enjoy more optimised workouts to reach your fitness goals. You can conquer your strength goals in the large free weights area where we have loads of kit, including benches, an additional Olympic lifting platform and squat racks. We also have a functional area where you can do all your functional and bodyweight training, so you have more ways to workout to reach your goals. To help keep you hydrated we have a sports water unit which will have 6 fruity flavours available to choose from.

TOP GEAR WILL DRIVE YOU TO SUCCESS

Don’t be concerned that we’re a cheap gym because we are brimming with more than 220 pieces of the latest equipment throughout all 230 of our spacious and air-conditioned clubs. Love a classic cardio work-out? Step on to our cross trainers, treadmills, steppers and rowers. Or how about a trip through different terrains on our spin cycles equipped with computerised monitors to highlight your progress? We’ve got stacks of fixed-resistance and plate-loaded gear too, plus a massive free weights area to strengthen key areas of your body.

KEEP HYDRATED WITH SPORTS WATER

If you want to make the most out of your workouts and get better results you need to keep hydrated and what better way is there to do so than with our sports water. Available in 6 fruity flavours and packed with essential vitamins the sports water can be yours for just £6 a month. To enjoy 500ml each time you visit go to our bolt on’s page and get access right away.

CLASS ACTION AT PUREGYM

If you love to work out with a gym buddy or in the company of others you’re in luck because we have more than 50 free classes available every week. If you’re looking for high-energy classes designed to see off those pesky calories then try out fat burn, boot camp or circuits. And if you love to get your body moving accompanied by top tunes then choose between aerobics and dance. Or if you require a form of exercise at a slower pace but with maximum impact try pilates - it strengthens the parts other classes cannot reach!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellence extraordinaire The atmosphere in the central Oxford pure gym is one of serenity and class. Adequate number of machines and well spoken and polite staff.I can even eat off the floor of the gym which just tells you how clean the gym is. In other places gyms reek of sweat but not pure gym . The air is always fresh and i am amazed at the air circulation system. Because of the put of this world classiness of pure gym i look at it as not my place of workout but where my body, soul and spirit can be at rest with each other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost empty, so perfect for me At the moment I'm using only cardio equipment as my aim is to lose weight after all these months without going to the gym, so I was very disappointed when I went to use the weight scale in the changing rooms and I found out I couldn't. Why? That doesn't make any sense: you can clean it before and after, the same way you do with the rest of the equipment in the gym, and I'm quite sure it is not used that much!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I thought it was great. Clean and tidy. Safe environment to workout with good spacing and lots of disinfectant

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy access and plenty of equipment as above, negative side - music is too loud and not varied for all ages, too monotonous a recordings repeated

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was very grateful to be back in a gym. I can see why the cleaning regime is in place, although I think the way Covid is spread makes the cleaning a bit redundant. I was surprised that I was only one wearing a mask but soon realised how uncomfortable it is. I think you’ve done a good job in difficult circumstances. Only problems were people choosing inappropriate places to work out. Could staff do regular sweeps? Also hand sanitiser isn’t very effective against covid... I’d appreciate more soap and water facilities if this were possible?
