Meta description: Are you a student looking for an affordable gym in Salford Quays? Our guide covers everything you need to know, from spin class to swimming!

The age of the home workout is over (for good, we hope!) and gyms across Salford are finally back open after the enforced lockdown.


While joining a gym may not have been your first priority post-pandemic, you might feel ready to sign up or get back to it. Group classes have returned too, and as much as we love Joe Wicks, it doesn’t quite compare to attending a spin class IRL. 


Luckily, we’ve done the hard work and rounded up five of the most affordable gyms in Salford Quays, so you can stick to pumping iron.


Salford Quays and the surrounding area is full of places to work on your fitness, and our blog focuses on getting the most for your money while getting a great workout in. 


Pure Gym

An obvious one to start with, but still worth a mention due to the affordability and location of the gym in Salford Quays.


With no contract to tie you down, and loads of classes to choose from, PureGym does exactly what you expect it to. 


You can sign up from just £16.99, meaning you’ll have spare change for a green smoothie on the way home. 


By signing up for PureGym’s plus membership you can also access any of their other gyms across the country, perfect for use during the uni holidays!

Crossfit QYS

If you like the idea of an intense workout, but get bored with the traditional gym set-up, why not give Crossfit a try?


The team behind Crossfit QYS are a dedicated bunch, looking to help you improve your level of fitness, no matter how far along you are in your journey.


Every session is led by an expert coach to maximise your time spent training, and you can also perfect your form with one on one sessions.


Not only that the team will also help set you up with a nutrition plan, to help you stay on track and improve your lifestyle.  


Class timetables and prices are available on their website and you can even assign up for a free trial

Helly Hansen Watersports Centre

Post-pandemic life has meant many of us are embracing new hobbies, and that can extend to your gym routine too. 


Summer is a great time to take advantage of the warmer water in Salford Quays, and there are plenty of activities to try out at the watersports centre.


You can hire a paddleboard, take the plunge with open water swimming, or if you fancy some adrenaline, even try wakeboarding.


Sessions are still slightly reduced due to Covid-19 precautions, but there’s plenty to try out - just don’t forget your goggles!

Salford Community Leisure


This is a great option if you want to mix up your workouts. You can sign up with an SCL membership, which offers loads of different workouts to choose from.


There are different levels of membership to pick from, depending on the type of gym or activity you fancy. The all-inclusive option features everything from spinning to swimming and group classes.


An SCL membership is popular with students, as there are often discounts for students during term time.

JD Gyms

While you can be forgiven for thinking JD just do trainers, they have expanded their brand to gyms too, and luckily for us, they’re reasonably priced!


Similarly to PureGym, there’s no contract, so if you change your mind or graduate you can cancel without any obligations.


The gym also offers a half-price joining fee of just £10, and over 300 free classes included in your membership. 


The team have focused on reopening safely, so you can be assured your workout is as covid-safe as possible, without compromising your visit.


You can also upgrade your membership to allow you to visit gyms across the country, and access discounts to lots of different high street shops.
