Active Nation expands budget portfolio with acquisition of énergie site

Leisure trust Active Nation has expanded its portfolio of budget gyms with the acquisition of a former énergie Fitness site in Ormskirk, Lancashire.

The 4,140sq ft (385sq m) site houses a 60-station gym floor equipped by Precor, a free weights zone and a small group training area.

Located close to Edge Hill University, the club becomes Active Nation's 22nd club. The diversifying portfolio now includes four budget gyms, a boutique club and a trampoline park.

The charity has added five new venues in the last 12 months and has a target of operating 30 venues by April 2020.

“With five new venues added to our portfolio in the last year, we are building strong connections with local communities every day," said Mark Learnihan, business development director of Active Nation.

“Not only are we strengthening the brand across the UK but working hard as a charity to turn the tide on inactivity.

"The addition of Active Nation Ormskirk is a fantastic start to the summer months, we look forward to welcoming new supporters across West Lancashire.

“We are continuing our growth as part of a larger charity strategy and this addition sees the diversification of our business model grow."
