A GYM in Bridgwater has closed permanently due to the impact of Covid-19.

Energie Fitness, at Express Park, has announced its demise on social media.

It had been operating in the town since late December 2018.

A post to members on Facebook in the past hour says: "It is with regret and a heavy heart that I have to inform you that we have to permanently close our gym.

"We can’t apologise enough for the inconvenience caused.

"Due to the restrictions of Covid-19 and the insurance company policies, we find ourselves not having the available cash flow to keep the gym running.

"We are just one of the many gyms that have closed across the country.

"I would like to say a huge thank you to my family, the amazing staff and to all our wonderful members for all of your support."
