Ray Hatton, dad of Ricky, opens club


Ray Hatton, father of former world champion boxer Ricky Hatton, has launched the first of what will ultimately become a chain of gyms. Located at the Merseyway Shopping Centre, Stockport, Metro Fitness has been launched as a premium-offer budget gym. Split over two levels, the


club offers a large selection of equipment, supplied solely by Cybex, which was also appointed to provide all the equipment at Ricky Hatton’s Health club when it opened three years ago. The Metro Gym offers

specific workout zones including a women- only area, virtual group cycling, suspension training, a large freeweight space, functional training area and Power Plate facilities. Monthly memberships have been priced to start at £19.99. Ray Hatton says: “Our aim is to marry

classes that are all available to members at no additional cost. George Stylianou, director at Metro


Fitness, says: “This gym will attract a whole new market, namely those who may have previously considered joining a gym but who have been put off by the inflated prices, hidden extra costs and long-term commitments. “We are also attracting gym members who


have become disillusioned with the lack of customer service, cleanliness and general upkeep of both equipment and facilities.”


“We already had Keiser M3 bikes in one of our sites and were impressed by the quality, durability and low maintenance requirements of the bikes. It was therefore a natural step to purchase them for two further sites Blyth Sports Centre and Ashington Leisure Centre. The bikes are extremely smooth and the computers add another dimension for participants who are able understand their workout and work harder.”
