A NATIONAL gym chain has revealed it is opening in Taunton within three months.

People will be able to use PureGym at any time of day or night, with 24-hour access for members.

Contractor workers are currently on site preparing the gym on an edge of town retail site.

A PureGym spokesperson for the company said it aims to have the premises up and running in the former PC World Unit 3 at Riverside Park in October.

She added: "PureGym is delighted to be bringing affordable, flexible fitness to Taunton later this year.

"Contractors are currently on-site and we aim to open in October 2022.

"The state-of-the-art gym will be a fantastic facility for the people of Taunton and will offer members fixed pin and free weights, a functional area, group exercise studio classes and access to our personal trainers.

"We look forward to welcoming new members – look out for our opening offer.”

PureGym is running an opening offer for gym goers to use the facilities from £12.99 a month, with no contract.

PureGym, which has hundreds of gyms across the country, is carrying out external alterations to the building, including new main entrance doors and the infilling of an existing entrance door.

There will also be parking for up to 12 bikes.
