Fresh Fitness now has 11 clubs in Denmark, all of which offer virtual classes using the Wexer system


Low-cost operator Fresh Fitness Denmark opened two new locations last month. The clubs opened on 4 May and 18 May in


the cities of Aalborg and Odense – Denmark’s fourth and third largest cities. They were the second Fresh Fitness sites for both cities, following on from clubs that opened last year. Both clubs are a standard size for Fresh


Fitness, at around 1,250sq m, with monthly membership priced at 149DKK (£16.90). In the gym, Innotech and COP Life Fitness equipment has been supplied by Fitness Engros. Group exercise classes are available, including virtual classes offered via Wexer Virtual. Gantner has supplied the electronic control system, while membership administration uses Exerp software.


“Our ambition is to reach a 20 per cent


share of the Danish market, and to do so we need more clubs in the bigger cities,” says Rasmus Ingerslev, CEO of Fresh Fitness Denmark. “Our first clubs in both of these cities grew very fast, so it was clear we could continue our roll-out. Judging by the pre-sale at the two new clubs, that seems to have been the right decision.” Fresh Fitness Denmark now has 11 clubs,


while Fresh Fitness Norway – led by Paal Hansem – has 15. The latest Norwegian opening took place on 29 April in Tønnsberg, with the first Swedish club also expected to open this year. The fast-growing chain expects to reach approximately 40 clubs in the Nordics by the end of 2013.


GoodLife to open club in Toronto airport The club will be open to the 30,000 airport


GoodLife Fitness has announced plans for its first ever in-airport location. The operator, Canada’s leading health club


chain, is building a club at Toronto Pearson International Airport, set to open this September. The 1,115sq m club will not offer group exercise, but the gym will be equipped with a full range of CV equipment with personal viewing screens, strength training equipment and free weights. There will also be luggage storage, a lounge area with massage chairs, changing rooms with private showers and lockers, and a towel service. Workout apparel will also be available to purchase.

staff as well as people travelling through – members of any of GoodLife’s 300+ clubs will be able to use the facilities. It will open during airport operating hours: 5am–midnight. “Working out before or after your flight


can have a tremendous impact on how you feel both physically and mentally when you reach your final destination,” says David ‘Patch’ Patchell-Evans, GoodLife founder and CEO. “Our vision is to give every Canadian the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life. Providing a club at Toronto Pearson is another great way that we can work toward this vision.”
