We’ve got a huge announcement… we have secured the unit next to our current premises and will be extending our already amazing facility!
Not only that but the new unit which will be accessible from the current premises, will be open 24 hours a day!!!!
We are going to be expanding in two phases, of which we are hoping to complete the first phase in January 2020, and the second by April 2020.
You can look forward to a whole floor of cardio machines with all the usual suspects including treadmills, cross trainers and bikes. We’re also adding kit not often seen in commercial gyms like Jacobs ladders, ski ergs, versa climbs and more. A dedicated weights space with lifting racks, Olympic bars, dumbbells, cable machines and more. There will be various punch and wall bags as well as a sled pulling track and plenty of space for your open workout. We will even have a boxing ring in there! There will be additional changing facilities, toilets and lockers for all of our members to use. Lastly we will be moving the cage forward to where the current Boxing ring is to allow the double door access into the new space.
Once the cage has moved there will be access to the new space, and a huge cross fit rig with lifting platforms, Olympic rings and more. Having a huge dedicated weights area in the new space means the current weights area will become our all new seating area, perfect for watching your little ones train! The current cardio room is going to be split into two, the first will become a new locker room and the additional part will be the new office. The current office is going to become even more changing room space, with lockers. Lastly we will be re-fitting the current male and female changing rooms.
We will be expanding the timetable even further once the new unit is complete and will be adding even more classes!
Want to have your say? Make sure you e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your thoughts. We like to think the above takes into consideration all feedback and requests we have had over the past 18 months but we are always open to ideas.
Lastly we would like to thank every single member and friend of Gym 01. Without your support we wouldn’t be able to do any of this. Please bear with us over the next 6 months whilst we carry out all of this work and keep an eye out on the Gym 01 instagram for updates of the build at @Gym01Portsmouth.
