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.

It comes as gyms are reopening after four months of coronavirus lockdown.

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.”
