A £1.5million new Wearside gym will create 15 jobs when it opens its doors next month.
JD Gyms, part of JD Sports Fashion Group, is transforming a 20,000sq ft space in the B&M building, off Spire Road at Washington’s Peel Retail Park.
Feedback and take up has been excellent so far – a gym of this calibre in this area has been a long time coming and we cannot wait to open the doors.Lisa Fulcher
Opening on Friday, March 4, the centre will feature more than 200 pieces of cardio, strength and functional fitness equipment and will also boast saunas, a sprint track, prowler track and free weights area.
A large studio and spin studio will play host to over 60 classes a week, all of which are included in the membership.
Manager Lisa Fulcher said: “We’re incredibly excited to be bringing a brand new, low cost gym with a difference to Washington.
“We’ll be offering exceptional fitness facilities, an unrivalled class timetable, luxury surroundings and saunas in a convenient location on a highly affordable basi
“Feedback and take up has been excellent so far – a gym of this calibre in this area has been a long time coming and we cannot wait to open the doors.”
Next month’s opening marks the end of a lengthy saga – the building has been earmarked as a gym development for a number of years under the care of various gym chains, but work never started.
The new centre will be open between 6am and 10pm on weekdays and 8am and 8pm on Saturday and Sundays.
The first batch of pre-launch memberships sold out within 48 hours and a final wave will go on sale soon.
Anyone who joins prior to opening will get their first month for £5 and a discounted ongoing monthly rate, along with a 14-day money back guarantee from the day of opening.
