FIT­NESS fa­nat­ics will soon be able to ac­cess Nuneaton’s first 24-hour gym based within a for­mer sports store.

Pure Gym bosses have re­vealed that they will be open­ing their first Nuneaton gym, based within the Rope­walk Shop­ping Cen­tre, on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 19.

But the of­fi­cial launch will be held on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 2 with a 24 hour Pure Gym char­ity chal­lenge, in aid of the Mary Ann Evans Hospice, and res­i­dents are be­ing in­vited to join in.

The aim of the chal­lenge is to col­lec­tively run, cy­cle and row 638 miles; which is the dis­tance it takes to reach Nuneaton’s twin town of Roanne in France.

Lib­erty Selvester Webb, man­ager of Pure Gym Nuneaton said: “We can­not wait to get the party started at the of­fi­cial open­ing of Nuneaton PureGym on Novem­ber 2.

“The in­spir­ing work of the Mary Ann Evans Hospice will en­cour­age us to pedal faster and get our sweat on, as the money we raise is for such a won­der­ful cause. My­self and the team of per­sonal train­ers will be on hand to cheer­lead the com­mu­nity on.

“We’re hop­ing that ev­ery­one from the lo­cal rugby team to the fire ser­vice and shop work­ers in the cen­tre will sign up.”

Nuneaton and Bed­worth’s Mayor , coun­cil­lor Bill Han­cox and his wife, the may­oress, Sheila will also be on hand at the of­fi­cial 24 hour launch party, which will also in­clude sev­eral undis­closed lo­cal sport­ing stars and per­son­al­i­ties.

It was back in April last year when the News first re­vealed that the for­mer JJB sports store would be trans­formed into a Pure Gym.

The gym will breathe life back into unit 26 which has stood empty for sev­eral years af­ter JJB shut in 2013. Those who would like to join in the char­ity chal­lenge, which starts at 12noon on Novem­ber 2, should log on to https://www.puregym.com/nuneaton­chal­lenge
