The Bannatyne Group is expanding its presence in Broadstairs with the opening of a hi-tec, low-cost gym - Just Fitness by Bannatyne.
Due to open its doors in the summer in the former DW Fitness site on Westwood Cross Shopping Centre, 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 the world-leading group fitness brand Les Mills members will benefit from a whole range of fantastic exercise classes taught by Just Fitness professionals. Virtual Les Mills classes will also be available in the fitness studios for the ultimate convenience, with both scheduled and ‘on-demand’ slots available.
The Bannatyne Group already operates a health club and spa in Westwood, Broadstairs 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.
“Broadstairs is growing, with more than 20,000 new homes planned. 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.”
