Southampton Shirley gym reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Friendly and welcoming space. I've been a member now for around 2 months. I was not confident about becoming a member of any gym until I popped into the gym for a look around and a friendly chat with Gordon, I was honest and told him my goals and my current fitness level and he put me at ease with his positive attitude, I signed up to classes as I didn't feel confident enough to use the equipment in an open area. It was the best thing I ever could have done. I met some great people and some great trainers, all who made me feel very comfortable and accepted. All the trainers have helped me accommodate my health issues and still participate in the classes. I've always loved a Friday night after work of going for a beer or twenty with my pals but since signing up to the classes I've genuinely enjoyed not going to the pub and instead taking petes classes. I can't imagine not doing the pump and abs class on my Friday nights now. He's funny and knowledgeable and has become a great inspiration to me on my journey to achieve my goals. I have always enjoyed cycling but through injuries over the past years I've let my cycling slip, when I saw that there was a Sunday morning spin class I thought I'd give it a go. Ive fallen back in love with the bike again and Donna's class has been a massive factor into that. Her upbeat playlists and enjoyable lessons are the best way to start my Sunday mornings with a bang. I also thought I'd give zumba a try as a lot of my Mrs friends have achieved some fantastic results through zumba classes, I have no rythum and terrible coordination but Marta's zumba workout on Tuesdays has me feeling fantastic, the whole class laughs and smiles from ear to ear with a great mood and vey energetic workout. I would recommend it to anyone looking to tone up and to help lose weight. All in all my confidence and fitness levels have dramatically improved thanks to all the trainers I have interacted with since signing up. If ever I have any questions and I see any one of the trainers in the gym they are always more than happy to offer helpful advise and answer any questions. Since getting my confidence levels up I've even started running 5k's on the running machines weekly. The only times I've run in the last 20 years was for the kebab van so to be able to achieve a 5k filled me with a great feeling. My first ever 5k took me nearly 40 minutes and over the space of the weeks I've gotten to just over 30 minutes. My aim is to beat the 30 minute mark soon. For anyone who's looking to take the plunge and join a gym I can't recommend the pure gym Shirley Southampton enough. I love the fact its 24hr aswell, I don't sleep very well so the availability to be able to go at any hour of the day is fantastic for me. 4am workouts have become my zen times now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant 6:30am cycle class 6:30am Cycle class with Gordon, really great class, his music set fits perfectly with what he’s asking you to do, makes SUCH a difference. Feel like I’ve worked really hard an achieved when I leave his class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PT’s and classes This gym is very popular at times, but that’s partly down to the great mix of classes and the great PT’s. Gord as a PT is great he’ll push and help you get the absolute very best effort out of you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clean and well stocked Was impressed with how clean and well kept the gym was . It’s not as big as The Gym in Shirley but as I will be visiting in the afternoons it won’t be an issue

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth it for a try Worth the money. Easy to use equipment. Am not sure whether it has changed but on the app you could see if the gym is busy but I haven't seen it so don't know if it has being removed but it would be nice to have it back if it's the case. As it helps makes the decision the times to go to the gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging and enjoyable Brilliant circuits class with Claire at 6:30. Different to how I’ve done it before, nice to mix it up. Was such hard work but felt like I’d achieved something by the end of it! Claire is really engaging and fun, she’s great at encouraging us all individually, very motivating!
