Offering a fusion between gymnasium, dance, circus and martial arts, Gym City champions ‘the new way to train’; providing a range of ‘unconventional’ fitness classes such as MMA, Muay Thai boxing and pole fitness. The gym is set to host the biggest range of state-of-the-art fitness equipment in any Derby gym to appeal to every member’s training preferences.

First established in 2008, Club Energy Fitness has gone from strength to strength. They specialise in many different types of training; offering studio, cardio, performance, boxing and a ladies zone under one roof. Earlier this year, directors, Gary and Patrick, approached Johnson Reed as the business was looking to relocate to larger premises to accommodate their growing membership base. With the help of Mark Johnson, they were able to quickly acquire their desired equipment though a lease; spreading the cost through monthly repayments over a fixed term. 

2017 has been another record year for the gym and leisure industry, according to the latest research by the Leisure Database. Johnson Reed Fitness Finance director, Jamie Collier, assesses the challenges gym and leisure businesses face as they go into the new year.

We’ve also seen increases in the number of fitness facilities and market value; 4.6% and 6.3% respectively.
