NEW life has been breathed into a Warrington gym which went into administration last year during the COVID-19 pandemic, helping save and create local jobs.
JD Gyms, part of JD Sports Fashion group, has transformed the former Xercise4Less at the Cockhedge Centre, into a “world-class” fitness facility, ready to open its doors to members on Monday (12th April).
Featuring over 300 pieces of the industry’s best cardio, strength and functional fitness equipment, the gym will also offer one of the area’s largest free weights zones, prowler/sprint track, rig and boxing area. State-of-the-art fitness studios will play host to over 300 classes a month, all of which are included in the monthly membership price.
The gym will be open from 6am – 10pm on weekdays and 8am-8pm on Saturday and Sundays and have free parking on site.
Managing Director of JD Gyms, Alun Peacock, said: “Warrington is a key location for us to increase the number of JD Gyms in the North West as our national rollout continues. We’re incredibly excited to have transformed the old Xercise4Less gym and created a higher standard of fitness facility for the people of Warrington.”
Existing members will receive a free month at JD Gyms upon reopening, to thank them for their loyalty.
For new members, membership is just £5 for the first month, then only £19.99 a month, no contract and no joining fee.
Xercise4Less went into administration in July last year and the trade and assets of the business were bought by JD Gyms, which has saved the jobs/livelihoods of the former Xercise4Less staff and will now create further employment opportunities for people in the local area.
