The Bannatyne Group is expanding with the opening of a hi-tech, low-cost gym – Just Fitness by Bannatyne – at the former DW Fitness site in Westwood Cross.
Due to open its doors in the summer, the new gym will create up to 12 new jobs.
Just Fitness by Bannatyne Broadstairs will offer state-of-the-art equipment, high-energy fitness classes and professional fitness experts all under one roof.
The 20,000sq.ft. gym floor will include:
- Six Olympic lifting platforms
- Nine squat racks
- A range of selectorized resistance equipment
- 108sq.m of state-of-the-art functional and cross-training space
- A dedicated glute training area
- Three fully equipped training pods
- Six dedicated combat stations.
The two dedicated fitness studios will host an extensive range of group exercise classes, all included in the membership, and the specialised group cycle studio will offer Les Mills RPM on demand.
Working in partnership with fitness brand Les Mills members will be able to choose from a range of exercise classes and virtual Les Mills classes will also be available in the studios with both scheduled and ‘on-demand’ slots available.
The Bannatyne Group already operates a health club and spa in Westwood and existing members will have access to the new site as part of their membership package.
Duncan Bannatyne, chairman and chief executive of the Bannatyne Group, said: “Just Fitness by Bannatyne Broadstairs will be a hi-tec, low cost gym.
“It will provide an alternative to our full-service health club and spa at Westwood Farm and members at that site will be able to use the new Just Fitness gym as part of their membership.
“This investment demonstrates our confidence in the town and will provide a number of jobs for local people.”
Fran Donovan, Centre Manager at Westwood Cross, said: “We’re extremely excited to welcome Bannatyne to our community, and pleased to be able to provide a low-cost health and fitness offer for local residents and visitors.
“Our partnership with Bannatyne is an excellent opportunity to increase our leisure offer locally, and we’re looking forward to working with the team at Just Fitness.”
