The Gym Group announced that it has signed a 15-year lease for a new gym in York which will open in first quarter of 2021. Located on Foss Island Road and next to Halfords, the site was previously a retail warehouse and has been vacant since 2018. Importantly, it has onsite car parking and fits The Gym Group's strict operational and financial criteria. Once fitted out to The Gym Group's high specification with a 5,000 square foot mezzanine adding to the floorplate of 10,000 square feet, the gym will be a similar size to other sites in The Gym Group's portfolio. Contract free membership is expected to be in the range of £20 per month. It will create 12 jobs following the investment of approximately £1.4 million.
