Gym owner, Nathan Gostling, said despite a difficult year for the industry he has been determined to carry on growing his business.

The 31-year-old said: “It has been a difficult year but I couldn’t let Covid get in the way of my dreams and my ambition to grow.  

“I really pushed for this new site and made sure I didn’t go backwards in that time period. Yes, we have lost members at our other gyms. But we have also used it as a great opportunity to review what we are doing.

The new gym, on Norwich Road, is located in a large unit which includes a studio for classes, areas for cardio and strength training and an outdoor area.

But with restrictions still in place, indoor group classes will not start until May 17 - across all gyms. 

Mr Gostling hopes the new opening times, 24 hours a day, will also give members the flexibility to come when they feel most comfortable and safe. 

He added: “It has been a long time coming and people have been struggling. The industry is going to play a big part in getting people back healthy in their mind and body.  

“As well as having that social interaction again. 

“I hope that we have a good start, I can’t imagine queues outside the door but we are going to slowly encourage our members back - making sure Covid restrictions are in place and everybody is abiding by the rules.”
