Gym group can jump in

A national health and fitness group has been given the go-ahead to open 24 hours a day in Shalesmoor.

The Gym Group is preparing to convert the former Rosebys home furnishings store in part of the Brook Shaw commercial park off Gibraltar Street.

Company representatives told the council that it offers a “high quality but cheaper option for health and fitness”, with equipment for rowing, running and cycling, along with weights. There are no dance or aerobics studios.
