truGym lands sought-after marina site for flagship facility

Family-run operator truGym has unveiled its latest UK site – a flagship 20,000sq ft (1,858sq m) facility which was originally going to be the chain’s first club.

The new site forms part of a large commercial scheme in the Chatham Dockside marina area of Medway, Kent. It has received the latest truGym fit out, which will soon be retro-fitted across the entire estate.

truGym managing director Parm Singh previously told Health Club Management that the site was intended to be the first ever truGym to launch in 2010 and said the chain had been working to acquire it ever since.

The Medway club comprises more than 220 stations, including a large Hammer Strength freeweight zone, plus Life Fitness cardio and strength zones. There is also a military rig for functional and circuit style training, plus dedicated spin and studio rooms offering a wide range of classes.

The club also features luxurious changing facilities with Italian made furniture and fixings, as well as saunas and steamrooms.

“We are pleased to open our latest club, which shows the high level of standard we are offering our members,” said Singh.

“We are embarking on a refurb programme to bring the rest of our estate up tot he same level, to achieve this premium offering at affordable prices."
