First look: New 24 hour gym at St Marks Lincoln

New gym: A new 24 hour gym is opening its doors in the centre of town at an extra cheap price for people who sign up before opening.

The long-anticipated, 24 hour gym in St Marks will be opening its doors for new customers on Thursday, April 30.

As previously reported, Pure Gym announced that it would open from the former Sports Direct store at the end of last year.

It has now been completely refitted to provide a large workout space, showers and changing rooms.

Steven Norton, Manager at Lincoln Pure Gym, said: “We combine the elements that a lot of gyms miss out on. Not only are we low cost, but we are open and staffed 24 hours and there’s no contract.

“We have a huge amount of equipment and classes. Some gyms will offer some of it, but no other gym will offer all of it together.”

For people who sign up before April 30, there is an introductory offer of £10.99 a month, contract free with a £15 admin fee. Although the gym will be open, classes will start on May 4 from 6.30am through to 8pm.

Membership at the gym provides access to plenty of cardio machines, a large free weight area and offers over 50 classes each week.

Located in the city centre, it offers a convenient location and parking is also included in the membership.

On opening, Pure Gym will have seven personal trainers to choose from for an additional cost, to work along side the classes and make sure that members get the most from the services that they offer.

“A lot of people have made a judgement that we haven’t got parking but members can park anywhere in St. Marks for two hours for free at any time”, Steven added.

“All they have to do is simply type in their registration plate when they enter the main part of the gym. The parking attendants have an iPad which has a live feed of all of the registration plates to make sure that nobody gets a ticket.

“Our team of personal trainers will offer support from programming, diet and nutritional advice to complete lifestyle support.

“Depending on what people are looking for, they are between £15-£30. It all depends on whether you want just a simple programme writing or whether you want regular sessions and lifestyle advice.”
