How PureGym Enables Faster more secure 24h access.


  • As PureGym has rapidly grown into the UK’s leading gym operator, it has needed to keep its operational costs low.
  • PureGym wanted to provide 24/7 access to its members safely.


  • PureGym keeps its operating costs low by using our entrance access technology.
  • Using our security products, PureGym can offer 24/7 access to its members.

Since opening its first gym in 2009, PureGym has rapidly grown into the UK’s leading gym operator by using a simple low cost scalable business model. In doing so, PureGym has been able to achieve a significant cost advantage which supports a low cost membership offering, attracting 1.4 million members at over 300 sites, making it the UK’s largest gym operator.


As part of its growth plan, PureGym has closely examined its development strategy with a specific focus on driving efficiencies, keeping operating costs to a minimum whilst maintaining the highest quality and safety standards. This led to the desire to allow 24/7 gym access for members, providing flexibility for customers and from a commercial perspective, optimising the use of all sites at all times. However, this challenge also comes with safety and security considerations.


Assessing PureGym’s operating environment and security needs, Meesons specified the C4 Cylindrical Portals at Pure Gym sites UK-wide. The solution has become the standard specification for all Pure Gym facilities based on a number of commercial and operational benefits it provides.

With an intuitive user interface, the C4 can be easily operated by the public without any need for supervision by reception staff. In doing so, it helps Pure Gym to keep its gyms operational yet secure – and operating costs to a minimum. Open 24/7 the C4’s low power consumption coupled with its interlock door design provides a green low energy solution. While all sites are fully serviced and supported by Meesons, the impressive reliability and independent unit operation of the C4 double entrance system means that downtime is virtually unheard of which provides an excellent customer experience and protects Pure Gym’s revenue.

Moreover, as Pure Gym offers members the flexibility of no fixed contracts, the C4 makes it quick and easy for Pure Gym to control access to only those who are currently paid members.

Finally, when planning the development of new sites, Pure Gym needs to make the absolute best use of space to ensure the maximum return on investment. As a space-saving design, the C4 assists this strategy by using a single cylindrical unit for both entrance and exit – as opposed to the two units that might alternatively be used.


Over the past five years, Meesons has consistently delivered the highest standards of service to Pure Gym, from the quality of the C4 system through to the timely installations and ongoing maintenance.
