Rush Fitness set for expansion


truGym lands marina site for flagship facility


The Medway club has over 220 stations The stylish Aylesbury club will have colour-coded zones for gym floor training


Trainer to the stars Mark Anthony plans to expand his low-cost gym concept Rush Fitness in sites across the south-east of England. Having launched the first two Rush Fitness sites – Uxbridge and Southend – in 2013, Anthony will now open a new health club in Aylesbury this August, with at least one more to follow this year in London Woolwich. Anthony previously owned his eponymous club in Notting Hill – where he trained celebrity clients including Katie Price, Billie Piper and Lucy Mecklenburgh – before selling the site to Heartcore Fitness in July 2014. The independently-owned Rush clubs


are a low-cost, no-contract proposition, with a notable emphasis on group fitness. The Aylesbury gym will offer pre-opening membership from £12.99 a month, rising to £24.99 a month when the club opens. “We believe that results driven by motivation,


not a 12-month tie-in, should be the catalyst for a long-standing gym membership, so there will be no joining contract,” said Anthony. “And unlike many low-cost gyms, Rush Fitness will offer a wide range of classes free to all members, including group cycling, Boot Camp, Mind & Body, Rush Hour and even Look Good Naked!” Leisure design and build specialist


Createability has started work on the Aylesbury club – a £450,000 project to develop the 1,000sq m site in Friars Square shopping centre. The development includes entry pods for 24-hour access, colour-led zoned areas for strength work, CV and functional training, an aerobic/cycling studio and two changing rooms. The club will feature more than 120 stations, plus a functional training suite. Intenza Fitness will be the main equipment supplier. Details: http://lei.sr?a=u3d3Q


Family-run operator truGym has unveiled its latest UK site – a flagship 20,000sq ft (1,858sq m) facility which was originally going to be the chain’s first club. The new site forms part of a large complex in the Chatham Dockside marina area of Medway, Kent. It has received the latest truGym fit-out, which will soon be retro-fitted across the entire estate. truGym managing director Parm Singh


previously told HCM that the site was intended to be the first ever truGym, to launch in 2010, and said the chain had been working to acquire it ever since. The Medway club comprises more than


220 stations, including a large Hammer Strength freeweights zone, plus Life Fitness cardio and strength zones. There’s also a military rig for functional and circuit style training, plus dedicated cycling and group ex studios offering a wide range of classes. The club also features luxurious changing facilities with Italian-made furniture and fixings, as well as saunas and steamrooms. “We’re pleased to open our latest club,


which shows the high standards we’re offering our members,” said Singh. Details: http://lei.sr?a=c2N4Z
