As of 24/09/18 PureGym has taken over what was once Soho! In Lewisham where I have been a member of for years! And was very happy with the level of service and facilities. Launch day there was pure gym staff everywhere in the gym but no one to assist those of us that had problems getting in with the new pin method! Before it was just a finger print! Once in the gym... I always wipe down the machines before and after I use them only to find all the tissues and hygiene sprays h...ad all been removed! When asked a member of staff I was told they don’t provide it and I need to bring my own!!! How unhygienic!

What was once a friendly and organised gym has turned into a miserable experience since pure gym took over from soho gym in Lewisham. They released nearly all the instructors, some of whom had been working there for 20+ years and had built up a loyal clientele. No notice, no suitable replacements and now most classes are taken by PTs who have had little or no training. It's a joke and dangerous to train with instructors who do not appear to be qualified to teach group classes. The entire atmosphere has changed and loyal gym members have left in their droves. The low prices are not an incentive to stay. I'd rather pay more and have the excellent Les Mills classes taught by proper Les Mills instuctors thanks... just as they were before.

"Be aware that we live in a very competitive environment whereby youth is king and people are looking for less-invasive procedures, and these procedures are now for the first time being directly marketed by the manufacturer in consumer magazines," points out session moderator Franklin L. DiSpaltro, MD, a plastic surgeon in West Orange, N.J., and a past president of ASAPS.
Every person’s body shape and structure is different. Hence, the treatment also varies from patient to patient. The number of sessions a patient as to undergo depends on several factors but the end goal always remain in achieving the desired body shape and tone for you. For instance, if you’re looking to remove just one pocket of fat, then one session of non-invasive treatment should be sufficient to take care of your needs. One session has been shown to reduce 20-25% of fat. On the contrary, if you have multiple pockets of fat that needs to be removed, it might take three to five treatment sessions administered over a six week long period.

In the past, liposuction would come with heavy downtime, taking weeks or even months to fully recover from the pain and swelling because of the procedure. However, at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute we employ an advanced form of liposuction named VASER Liposuction to significantly reduce the recovery time. With VASER, you can expect to return to y...

Maintaining a beautiful figure or desirable body shape takes a lot of hard work. It requires diligent diet and exercise regimens that will keep you healthy and fit. Unfortunately, these efforts can’t always overcome our genetic predispositions for where fat gets stored. That’s why it’s common to find that in spite of all your efforts, you may still possess a few stubborn areas of fat that simply won’t go away. If this describes your situation, you may benefit from nonsurgical body sculpting procedures that will put the finishing touches on your workout routine, helping you achieve the toned shape you desire.

CoolSculpting is unique in that it is the only method of fat loss that utilizes freezing technology. Other methods involve the use of heat, and include ultrasound energy, lasers, and radiofrequency. CoolSculpting is more effective in removing fat and does so with more comfort than these other modalities. CoolSculpting is, in fact, the world’s leading technology for the noninvasive reduction of localized collections of excess fat.
*In the U.S., the CoolSculpting®procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. In China, the cryolipolysis system is used for fat layer reduction of the abdomen and flanks. In Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure is cleared for the breakdown of fat in the flank (love handle), abdomen, and thigh. Outside the U.S., China and Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure for non-invasive fat reduction is available worldwide. CoolSculpting® and its design are trademarks of ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc., an Allergan affiliate. CoolSculpting is the treatment doctors use most for non-invasive fat removal.

In recent years, CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular nonsurgical alternatives to liposuction. This procedure utilizes cryolipolysis technology to freeze fat cells, causing them to wither and die. Your body will then safely remove these dead fat cells, leaving you with a more toned, sculpted figure. Dr. Fitzgerald can use CoolSculpting to remove targeted pockets of fat in many areas of your body, including your:
Traditional surgery requires all of the above and there is an increased risk of infections as a patient is under general anesthetic for several hours. This procedure also leaves behind, scars on your body which will stay with you for lifetime. Non-invasive procedures like body sculpting does not entail these risks. Plus, you can select which part of the body you like to tone down to that perfect shape.
The best way to determine whether you’re fit for undergoing body sculpting without surgery is to consult the physician directly. There are two types of fat present in a human body. The first type is called visceral fat. This fat is present deep inside the muscle tissues and are not soft or pinchable. The other type is called subcutaneous fat. This kind of fat is present above the muscle and are really soft and pinchable. Subcutaneous fat can be easily removed using non-invasive techniques like laser contouring. However, if you are someone who carries a lot of visceral fat, you will need to take the long road and exercise to get a perfectly toned body.
"People who lose 100 pounds or more feel healthier, they know they are healthier, they can do things they could not do before. But when they look at their body, it's a constant reminder of where they were – and it can sometimes make it difficult to move on with their life," says J. Peter Rubin, MD, director of the Life After Weight Loss Surgery Center at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
Body sculpting can be used to remove excess skin/fat in the areas near neck (lower chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. The surgical procedures for these areas can take up to 10 hours for surgery and a period of 18 months to show the desired results fully. Using artificial or natural means to improve the overall physique or muscle tone is referred to as body sculpting. Hence, it is possible to tone the muscles as well according to your requirement. It has been shown in scientific studies that exercise, regular dieting, and strength training is an effective way to change your body.

I've been going to puregym Leeds since it opened and have not experienced what other reviewers have. I've not had anything stolen but saying that I do lock up my belongings..I think it's unfortunate that others may have been stolen from. In regards to the staff, they do get on with their business and whenever I've asked for help (and I've asked different members) all have taken time out even during busy periods, to help me out. Sometimes you just need to speak up. In regards to the mould and filth in the changing rooms, I've seen none of this. The gym is still relatively new with cleaners working most of the day. I tend to go in the mornings when it's quiet and the one time I've been on an evening it's been hectic and yes, the changing rooms were messy but that's because other people using the gym left their own rubbish lying about, rather than bin it. For the price of the membership I really can't complain!
