Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time in gym and impress Clean well equipped and left a lasting impression to want to come back again
Date published: 2021-09-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good gym, however not enough free weight equipment It’s not a bad gym however it’s not amazing, not enough equipment for the large number of people in the gym, only 2 deadlift stations across the gym, only 2 benches and being compound lifts they’re in a lot of peoples training programmes. Good number of dumbbells which is good and good machinery across the gym, however in the free weight station an expansion is needed to accommodate for the amount of people using it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the friendliest place in the world I've always found gyms fairly intimidating environments, there wasn't really anyone by way of staff about to offer any support to a newbie any sort of support of hints as to what to do with most of the equipment. Other than that seems ok

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep the vending machines stocked up Vending machines need to be filled more frequently

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time back in 18 months I have been exercising at home during the lockdown but wanted to get back to the gym once a week so I popped in on Friday afternoon. It was great - I felt safe, comfortable - and I stayed an hour. I'll be back next week!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Returning customer, needs more lockers I joined PureGym a couple years ago and was at Basildon on the day when it opened, feeling fresh, clean and perfect. Returning now for the first time in over a year it’s all the same equipment, still cleanish (attended at 9pm so a long day of use by others). My only real gripe was that the lockers are very well worn now, with a lot of broken doors and locks that don’t work (literally with my padlock attached you could open the doors). Didn’t use all the equipment that I used to as I’m out of shape and slowly easing into it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Legs, bums and tums I have only used the gym so far for the classes but I’m really enjoying them and the instructors are great
