Brief History

The very first Pure Gym branch was opened in 2009 and from the very beginning it has the focus of making exercise and fitness much more affordable, flexible and convenient. It was to target everyone and not just a select number or specific demographic. The design of the gyms is based on providing the things that users really want and need, meaning they are not wasting money on unnecessary extras and able to offer lower prices to use the equipment and their services.

They don't require contracts and don't offer services such as spas, saunas and swimming pools at their gyms. The company was established by the so-called 'serial entrepreneur Peter Roberts and has grown from four sites between 2009 and 2011 in Edinburgh, Manchester, Leeds and London to more than 200 now throughout the UK. In 2018, the gym chain reached 1m members, making them the first business of their kind to achieve that particular milestone and have plans to increase further, looking to add another 300 to its family of outlets by 2020.
