The duration of a typical body sculpting treatment lasts for about thirty to forty minutes (maximum is an hour.) During this time, it is recommended to bring something with you to pass time since you will not be under a general anesthetic. Other ways to pass time is to get some of your work done or take a short nap while the procedure is going on. Comparing this to traditional surgical methods, which takes up to 10 hours to complete and a prolonged period of one month of downtime to recover.

Body sculpting is used to tone down your body features and during the process you lose some weight as well. However, it is not an alternative to exercising and dieting. Massive amount of weight cannot be lost due to a body sculpting procedure. In fact, every patient who comes in for body sculpting procedure has to consult an expert who determines if the procedure is a perfect fit for the body type, and weight of the person. BMI (Body Mass Index) is the standardized measurement that is used to determine if the patient qualifies for the treatment or not.
Now, you can finally achieve your weight loss goals without the risk or downtime of major bariatric surgery.

Of course, the gym does get extremely busy at peak times, but as a 24-hour gym, you can plan your visits to avoid this. This serves as proof of the great value and variety of machines. A timetable of classes are available which range from Circuits to Spinning, and Kettle Bells to the ominously titled Military Body Blast. They are very accessible to view and reserve places on, as each member has their own account on the Pure Gym website. The classes are priced from £1 to £3 and there are up to 10 places available for each class. The smug sense of superiority when booking a 7:30am class is unbeatable. The reality of shivering down to the gym on a dark Winters' morning with a make-up free face and exchanging morning pleasantries with the milkman, is another matter entirely. Needless to say, I only attempted this once and will perhaps try it again in the Summer months.
Ok, so this is my third pure gym in the uk. I am going back to the review of the Edinburgh one because I may have been harsh. These gyms are convenient, low cost and best of all no contract Pros No contract (great for travelers like me) Lots of machines (power plates) Cons Stupid tvs everywhere playing crap music videos No sanitary wipes All in all good experience!
