FORMER NIGHTCLUB REOPENS AS £2m GYM
A £2m state-of-the-art gym development at the former Kudos Nightclub in Wigan had it’s grand opening last week and Fitness Systems were on hand to provide all the fitness equipment and do the fit-out.
JD Gyms, part of JD Sports Fashion group, has transformed the 26,000sq ft. space on Anjou Boulevard into the chain’s ‘biggest and best’ fitness facility yet.
Featuring over 200 pieces of the industry’s finest cardio, strength and functional fitness equipment, JD Gyms Wigan also offers saunas, a sprint track, prowler track and the area’s largest free weights area. A large studio and spin studio plays host to 450 classes a month, all of which are at no extra cost.
JD Gyms Wigan boasts the UK’s very first JD BURN, a new, high-intensity results based bootcamp concept. JD BURN combines the latest functional training equipment with expertly crafted classes tailored to suit different aims, which will see members burn off between 500 to 1000 calories per session, getting ‘leaner and meaner’ each time.
The arrival of the fitness centre has given the landmark building adjacent to The DW Stadium a new lease of life, and created 15 jobs. The gym is open from 6am – 10pm weekdays and 8am-8pm on Saturday and Sundays.
Having been named as Budget Gym of the Year at a national awards ceremony last year and recently announced as finalists again for this year’s ceremony, the JD Gyms chain is proving to be adding style and quality to the budget gym market.
Managing Director, Alun Peacock, said: “We’re incredibly excited to have brought this brand new, low cost gym with a difference to Wigan. We are offering exceptional fitness facilities, an unrivalled class timetable, luxury surroundings and saunas in a convenient location on a highly affordable basis. Feedback from members and prospective members has been absolutely phenomenal, everyone who has walked through the doors has been blown away by what they see.”
