A new gym is opening in Bedford early in the New Year which will offer 24-hour opening.

The Gym Group will be opening at Unit 2A, Alban Retail Park, London Road, Bedford, creating up to 20 jobs including 12 personal trainers.

The group’s mission is to make health and fitness facilities accessible and affordable to everyone, and like the current 51 gyms in the group, The Gym Bedford will offer what members say they need and want - 24-hour access to brand new equipment in a fully refitted state of the art gym that is bright, clean and safe, exceptional customer service, all at prices as low as £10.99 a month with no commitment to a 12 month contract.

General manager Matthew Saunders, who has worked for more than 15 years in the leisure sector, said: “I am really excited about continuing my support for the community here in Bedford, helping more local people overcome barriers to fitness and also motivating and guiding them to reach their fitness goals.

“With the help of my assistant general manager, Gemma Williams, we’re offering flexible membership terms which allow people to come and go as they please. We want to attract a whole new leisure market. For example those on low incomes, students, retired people and shift workers as well as affluent people who value the 24 hour opening and flexible membership terms.”

John Treharne, CEO of The Gym Group, says: “We deliver a ‘what you see is what you get’ service at an affordable price. But more than this, at The Gym there are no contracts to tie you in because we know that people need flexibility to accommodate other changes in their lives and to come and go from their gym as and when they want.”
