24/7 Fitness opens at Fort Dunlop site


24/7 Fitness has taken over Birmingham’s iconic Fort Dunlop building as the site for its fiſth fitness club, continuing the former rubber wheel factory’s traditions by offer- ing locals a place to shed their spare tyres. Te building that once housed Fort Dunlop


tyres had stood empty for 20 years, but has now been redeveloped into an office and retail space complex, with 24/7 Fitness club occupying a sizeable space of 6,395sq ſt (594sq m). 24/7 Fort Dunlop is the second Birmingham


facility for the health club chain, following the site in nearby Bearwood, which new mem- bers will also have access to. As with the group’s other venues, the new club features a full range of cardiovascular machines; including Matrix treadmills, ellipticals and cycles, plus resistance equipment from the Matrix Aura series, free weights, and a ladies-only gym.


24 Te famous former tyre factory has been repurposed “Research indicates nearly 35 per cent of adults


in Birmingham are physically inactive, costing the local authority over £22m per 100,000 peo- ple per annum,” said Andy Loughray of Matrix Fitness, adding that the site was a vital addition to the city. Details: http://lei.sr?a=n2S3r
