Body sculpting is pretty fresh on the scene. In 2008, two Harvard-affiliated scientists founded the idea of selective cryolosis—the process of freezing fat cells and killing them, eliminating stubborn body fat. The hypothesis that cold temperatures could kill fat came from one interesting observation. Children who sucked on popsicles often developed dimples, indicating that cold temperature could eliminate fat cells, leaving little “pockets.” Weirdly, body sculpting sort of mimics popsicle sucking.
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:
Nevertheless, this intrigued Friend #3, Friend #5 and myself into going later that day. On entering the gym, I saw that the previous description was a pessimistic one. Although the space has a functional appearance, there is an impressive array of exercise machines. As well as the usual suspects of running machines, bikes and rowing machines for cardiovascular training; there are also some great strengthening machines, both individual and multi-station. A circuit training area, a space to use medicine balls and a free weights area complete the layout.
I'm pretty new to gyms, and well still slightly scared by the whole thing. But this place had a pretty relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the staff are really nice. There is a great selection of equipment and a lot of each machine, so even at the busiest of times you're pretty much sure to get on what you want to use. Being open 24hrs is great too as it makes avoiding the busiest times pretty easy. The price is excellent too, £17.99 per month at the moment. The only drawback is, with being the but cheaper there aren't paper towel machines about to wipe down machines after use, and for a pretty big gym it only has 1 drinking fountain and so queues can be a bit annoying when youre a knackered and parched it feels like hours!
You just have to take it as it is. It isn't great, but you're paying at least £30 less than other city centre gyms. Unfortunately, this means that less 'nice' people frequent, and the changing rooms are pretty awful. The machines are also usually littered with well, litter, and aren't that clean. If I could afford to go elsewhere, I really think I would. But I can't. *sigh*.
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!
Great gym, staff are very friendly and helpful. The gym is well mixed and diversified so all ages and background would feel comfortable at this gym.

CoolSculpting provides excellent results that can be seen within one month of treatment, and clients experience an average of 20-25% reduction in their treatment zones.
The treatment courses are as your doctor recommends. You will start seeing the changes in a few months; however, to maintain that perfect body shape and structure of muscles is more difficult that it seems. You must take proper care to follow a nutritional diet, and also have an exercise regimen that will help you maintain. Maintaining muscle tone of your body is absolutely pertinent for the overall shape of your body.
The research reported that patients who underwent bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery on the stomach and/or intestines) who waited about a year before undergoing body-contouring surgery saw a reduction in the complication rate -- and ended up with shorter hospital stays. The researchers also reported that waiting allowed the death rate to drop dramatically, from 14% for those who had body-contouring surgery soon after losing the weight, to 0% for those who waited.
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.
Our weight training exercises are easy-to-learn and put little impact on the joints. Because strong, toned muscles increase your metabolism and burn calories far more than cardio only workouts, participants see results much faster because weights are used to stress the muscles. Body Sculpting™ also helps to increase bone density aiding in the prevention of the development of osteoporosis. Our certified Body Sculpting instructors will teach you the proper way to work out with weights while providing expert one-on-one instruction, helping you to achieve your personal fitness goals and providing a truly results-oriented whole body workout.

Most of my issues with this gym are with the people who visit and not so much the facilities itself. The gym itself is great. As a person that isn't overly into my fitness the price is great. The layout of the gym makes it easy to navigate, there is a bit of running between stairs to get to equipment, but most of what I would use is on the same floor. The classes are easy to book with the app and are plentiful.
