PureGym membership existing membership price reduction (OK for new members too) £9.99 / month

47
Found 28th Oct 2015
I went into my newly refurbed local Pure Gym today (Sheffield North) and noticed the price being advertised there was £9.99 a month with no joining fee. I've been a member of that gym since it opened nearly 3 years ago now, and I had joined on £10.99 p/m opening offer which increased to £14.99 after a year - the price I've been paying ever since.

So I called up their Customer Services to moan about why I should be paying £14.99 when anyone joining now is paying £9.99 p/m and what is stopping me cancelling and joining again at the cheaper rate.

Straight away without argument my membership was reduced to £9.99 and I was told my higher price was due to 'being able to use other PureGyms' - something which I found a bit strange because I know they charge higher than £14.99 for that as when I originally joined I'd made sure I didnt pay any extra than what I needed to.

So basically, the deal here is : existing members check your membership against the current price on the website for your club - If it is lower than what youre paying now, call them up on 0344 477 0005 and they will instantly reduce it for you too.

New members: its 'no joining fee' at the moment too, not sure when this ends, but worth joining if you make use of it 2/3 days per week. MUCH cheaper than 'posh' clubs like Virgin and just as good IMHO.

I agree, Pure Gym is much better value for money, not to mention 24 hour opening means you can go for a session before work, plus free wifi at my local and very decent equipment and an app to book/cancel classes.

no free wifi at mine, but who cares. You go in to a gym to get some sweat on, not to browse the net!
Theres a massive tesco next to it though which is where the parking is, so very convenient location as I can do the shopping straight after!

Yeah, but club dependent.
If youre an existing member, check what you pay currently against what the club charges new members by selecting it on their web site. Call them up on the number I gave and they will reduce to whatever your local club charges.

thank you mine dropped from £17.99 - £13.99

mine should drop from 23 to 16, £10 joining fee but can always cancel and re-join.

To be fair I think the free wifi would be more useful to those with music streaming services like spotify, tidal, Apple music, etc

£19.99/month + £15 joining fee for Brighton

Wooo thank you for heads up

I've just signed up and saved £15 as I found this in case it helps anyone: ebay.co.uk/ulk…527

Thanks for he info op. I've been playing 19.99 a month for a while now. Checking the website I can get it down to £11.99.

Not applicable to my pure gym but good heads-up
heated for that !

just saved £5/ month. thanks so much op!

Done, awesome. Thanks

Thank you very much Op, just saved myself £4 a month with one simple phone call

​Yes, I use the wifi to stream Spotify, so no longer have download music plus great for Nowtv app for my favorite tv series and catchup tv when on the cross-trainer, running machine and bike.

All expensive in London, I think it's £20/25 for the one in Wandsworth

Theres a new one opening near Canary wharf I think in place of l.a fitness and their fb page says £29.99 limited time lol

£34.99 on website here

Anyone pay lower in London for all pure gym locations, if I can get it for £25 or less I'd buy it and use at local.

Selected gyms only but good price if you can nab it.

"Brand new customers only" yep pure gym are very good , similar to the gym but does annoy me how they won't waive the joining fee if you want to transfer to another gym that's closer

dont bother... its s h I t

Yes I heard its rubbish too, but the lesuire centre I go to is £34.99 and they have alot of equipment but there's no paper towles and when treadmills and showers need preparing it takes months. Can't be worse than that.

Not **** at all. Good equipment on Manchester anyway. Just no extra faffs like sauna or swimming pool.

Yep nothing fancy like sauna or swimming pool but for £9.99 a month who's complaining. I use mine at least 3 times a week with the remaining days allocated for road running. Much better value than Virgin where I used to pay over £50 a month lol

Equipment is perfectly fine and clean too. Most of the times the gym is not too busy and you'll always get to go on whatever you want. Very clean and well looked after.

Pity no wifi at mine I could do with the music streaming lol

It's a pity it's not £9.99pm for all the gyms. I think it's only the less popular/less established ones that are £9.99pm. The one nearest to my work is actually £24.99pm and the one nearest my house is £19.99pm. Good deal in general though for those who can get it.

Not a patch on DW FITNESS without a doubt the best gym in the UK

Been paying £18.99 since joining Milton Keynes, still same price today. I think it's still worth it - well equipped, clean, and when it does get a bit busy between Monday and Wednesday it's car parking that's the grief, not the availability of the kit.

​Apples and Oranges! The DW near me is £20 joining fee and £42 a month with a 12 month contract, and all it has extra to the Pure Gym is a pool!

The Matrix machines that Pure Gyms use are pretty outdated

how are the matrix machines outdated??

I also joined when it was no joining fee for £9.99 per month , also can freeze membership for 3 months at a price for £5.99 per month.hope this helps.Yep nothing fancy like sauna or swimming pool but for £9.99 a month who's complaining.
