Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

AN ABAN­DONED site of a for­mer night­club is be­ing knocked into shape with the town’s first 24-hour gym.

Build­ing work is un­der­way on the Anytime Fit­ness gym at the site of the old An­gels night­club on Duke Street, which has been empty for three years.

The build­ing is due to com­plete soon ahead of the gym open­ing in the new year, ready to at­tract post-Christ­mas gym go­ers.

It will be one of thou­sands of Anytime Fit­ness gyms world­wide which tar­get fit­ness fans who want to work out through the night – with plans to open the gym all day ev­ery day.

Brother and sis­ter James and So­phie Hoyle, who own the fran­chise and live in Dids­bury and Hale, are build­ing the gym, which spans over 8,000 sq ft, af­ter Cheshire East Coun­cil granted plan­ning per­mis­sion ear­lier this year.

High-tech fea­tures in­clude ‘vir­tual’ pre­re­corded fit­ness classes which can be viewed at any time.

So­phie Hoyle said: “We are re­ally ex­cited about be­ing part of the Mac­cles­field com­mu­nity.

“Bring­ing this gym to the town cen­tre and fill­ing an empty build­ing is help­ing to re­ju­ve­nate the town cen­tre.

“It has been a plea­sure to work with Hal­lams Prop­erty Con­sul­tants to bring Anytime Fit­ness to such a prime spot in the cen­tre of Mac­cles­field.

“We will of­fer open­ing hours to suit those liv­ing, work­ing or vis­it­ing Mac­cles­field town cen­tre to fit in with busy lives. Convenience is cru­cial to Anytime Fit­ness and our model of­fers flex­i­bil­ity for all life­styles.

“The lux­ury gym will be fit­ted out with the high­est spec­i­fi­ca­tion in car­dio, strength and func­tional kit and there will be daily classes in the stu­dio.”

The sib­lings have a branch in Knutsford and are open­ing an­other in Bramhall in Jan­uary, with plans to open more across the area.

Mem­ber­ships are on sale now at a dis­counted rate un­til the first week of Jan­uary. Those in­ter­ested can meet the team and sign up in their tem­po­rary of­fice at 72 Mill Street.

Dan Rodgers from Hal­lams Prop­erty Con­sul­tants who mar­keted the site said: “We are de­lighted that Anytime Fit­ness is com­ing to Mac­cles­field, and the new gym will bring fresh vi­brancy into the town.

“We wish So­phie, James and the team from Anytime Fit­ness much suc­cess.”
