Third Space gears up to open three new clubs

Third Space launching three clubs this summer
Wood Wharf in early summer, followed by Battersea and Clapham Junction
Clapham Junction will be in a Grade II listed former department store
CEO, Colin Waggett, says he’s a 10 out of 10 for optimism

Speaking exclusively in the current issue of HCM magazine, Third Space CEO, Colin Waggett, says he is feeling optimistic, as the company gears up to open three clubs this summer.

“In terms of optimism, I’m a 10 out of 10,” says Waggett in HCM 2024 issue 1. “The big tailwinds continue to blow very strongly for us: people prioritising experiences, fitness being a social as well as a health pursuit, fitness being a sport in itself, young people exercising more, broadening our appeal and reach… you get the drift.”

The next Third Space set to open is at Wood Wharf in the early summer. It will include a 20 metre pool, sauna and steam, hydropool, Reformer Pilates, hot yoga, multifunctional fitness area, elite cardio area and free weights.

This will be shortly followed by Battersea, which will offer a 20 metre pool; wet spa with hydropool, sunken Finnish sauna and marble steam; hot yoga, a 15 metre sled track with custom-built rig, an Eleiko lifting area and a tiered cycle studio with surround sound and dynamic lighting.

Also opening in the summer is the Clapham Junction site, set in a stunning Grade II-listed former department store. Original features, such as the wooden beams and the floor to ceiling windows, will be complemented by modern architecture including a bespoke staircase.

Waggett has fond memories of this location: “This has been several years in the making and the site of the former Arding & Hobbs department store, which is where I bought my first suit before I started work over 30 years ago. It's going to make a fabulous space for a Third Space club.”

More than 100 classes a week will be on offer at the four studios: Reformer Pilates, HIIT, mind and body and group cycling. Flooded with natural light, the 2,500sq ft gym floor will offer world-class strength and conditioning workout facilities, including an Eleiko weightlifting area, a sled track and multi-function rig.

GM, Sebastian James, says: “It will be a sanctuary for those who seek the pinnacle of physical and mental wellness in an environment that blends historical charm with state-of-the-art facilities. It’s not just another gym, it’s a luxury neighbourhood club that stands as a beacon of wellness innovation.”

Third Space launched its most recent and ninth club in Wimbledon last December, marking the company's foray into a surburban area.

You’ll want to read the rest of Waggett’s 2024 prediction, as well as the thoughts of other industry heavyweights, including The Gym Group CEO, Will Orr; PureGym’s group COO, Rebecca Passmore and president of Xponential Fitness, Sarah Luna
