A new gym is coming to Norwich offering a £5 a month membership offer to the first 200 people to register.
JD Gyms, based in Wigan and with 30 venues across the UK, is opening six new outlets including one in Norwich.
But the firm is remaining tight-lipped over exactly even though it is currently offering 200 memberships at £5 a month for the first month of joining.
The ‘state of the art’ gym will have studios, saunas, a ‘JD burn area’ and a sprint track, weights and fitness equipment.
JD Gyms recently acquired the Xercise4Less gyms – which has no venues in Norfolk – beginning a refurbishment programme of those outlets. There will be no joining fee nor contract and it offers a standard monthly membership of £19.99.

Alun Peacock, managing director of JD Gyms, recently said: “We are delighted to have completed this acquisition which enhances our position in the highly competitive gym market and which will ensure the continued employment of many hundreds of people.”
On its website, JD Gyms states: “JD Gyms Norwich will give you a truly cutting edge fitness experience at an incredibly affordable price, with 200 discount memberships available.”

“It’s good for Norwich to have some competition among gyms,” he said.
