Pure Gym is Britain’s largest gym chain by membership with approximately 450,000 members! These gyms are open 24 hours a day and offer cardio equipment, fixed and free weights and exercise classes. There are no swimming pools or saunas like any other gyms which is why memberships are found cheaper.
