Anytime Fitness which is opening a gym in Uckfield in December will be welcoming people to its sales office in Bridge Cottage from today.
The office will be open seven days a week, for six weeks, while contractors convert neighbouring premises in Bell Walk House to accommodate the gym which will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Sales office opening hours will be 9am-6pm Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm on Saturday, and 10am-2pm on Sunday.
The aim is to enable people to register so that as soon as the gym opens people can go in and start training.
There are early bird discounts of £32.99 a month for the first 100 people to sign up, and £35.99 for the next 150.
The full membership fee will be £39.99 a month or 12 months for the price of ten if for the whole year.
On Saturday Anytime Fitness held a Fit Fest at the Civic Centre in Uckfield. There were free taster classes, challenges, fitness assessments prizes, a juice bar, face painting and more.
Gym owner Nisha Patel said she was pleased to be promoting fitness with her team. She had fallen in love with Uckfield when looking for a town to open in. “I really like the community feel here,” she said.
She partnered with organisations such as Uckfield Yoga and Elite Dance and Drama for the Fit Fest and said they hoped to find a nutritionist locally who would be able to give health talks for members in the evenings. “We want to build relationships here,” she added.
