New 24 hour gym to open in Lincoln

Fitness, anytime: A new 24/7 gym will be opening in uphill Lincoln soon.

Lincoln’s first 24/7 gym will open in the new units at the Tesco Extra site on Wragby Road.

Anytime Fitness is an international chain of 24-hour gyms. At present, the brand offers 16 gyms across the UK, with more preparing to open.

In Lincoln, Anytime Fitness will open at the end of October alongside the newest St Barnabas Hospice charity shop.

It will feature private bathrooms instead of the typical changing rooms, access to 2,500 gyms across the world, a cardio and weights area, personal trainers and fitness classes.

For those looking to train during the night but still wanting to partake in group classes such as spinning, virtual classes will be available.

The cardio equipment is supplied by Life Fitness, and features technology such as the ability to interact with smartphones to track progress.

The weights area will feature dumbbells up to 50kg (up to 62.5kg based on demand), barbells up to 45kg, weight discs, power racks, a Life Fitness Synrgy functional training rig and various resistance machines.

During the pre-opening period, prices will begin at £24.95 per month for membership for the first 100 people, then £27.95 for the next 100, £29.95 and then £32.95 thereafter.

There is also a £20 joining fee which includes a fob key for access and 30 minute personal training session.
