Low-cost operator Kiss Gyms’ new nightclub-style gym is being designed by Createability


Createability has started work on a new “nightclub-style” club in Swindon for independent budget chain Kiss Gyms, due to open in April. The 1,347sq m (14,500sq ft) club is housed


in a former bank and is to become the group’s second 24-hour location, following the 2011 launch of its first site in Milton Keynes. A 13-week build process has now started


on-site, which will comprise a 150-station gym fitted by Matrix, as well as Dynamic Activity’s bodycore functional training platforms.


Meanwhile, an acoustic barrier will be


installed to separate the fitness suite from two floors of residential apartments above and will add to the nightclub feel of the facility. Kiss Gyms owner Rupert Mackenzie-Hill says: “It’s a super space in an old bank with lots of nooks and crannies and even basement vaults. “We have typical ly looked at the


south-west of England for new sites to open Kiss Gyms, and the centre of Swindon is relatively poorly served, so we are hoping for a good response.”


Go Gym opens its doors in Surrey


The newly-opened 1,254sq m (13,500sq ft) Go Gym in Sutton, Surrey, has chosen Matrix Fitness as its supplier of choice. The brief for Matrix was to


install innovative and high- specification products, which would set Go Gym apart from typical ‘budget gyms’, but remain an affordable option for users. Go Gym invested in a

variety of Matrix equipment, including the 7 Series XECV featuring Virtual Active by Matrix – a video-based entertainment programme allowing gym users to select a destination to use as a virtual training location. In addition to providing the equipment,


Matrix was also involved in changing the layout of the site. Jeremy Jenkins, Matrix’s project manager, says: “We worked in partnership

with Go Gym on designing the layout, and decided to divide the gym into zones due to the nature of the site. It is a residential building with the gym spread over two floors, so we have installed CV and strength equipment on the ground floor, and CV machines and changing rooms on the first floor. This makes best use of the space and enables users to have a more efficient workout.”


“Edinburgh Leisure have made a commitment to use Keiser’s M3 bike for all their RPM studios. The feedback from staff and customers has been excellent... the aftercare service is the best Edinburgh Leisure have experienced.”
