Entrepreneur brings 24-hour gym to Leeds

A 24-hour gym is set to open in Leeds, giving fitness fanatics round-the-clock access to exercise, every day of the year.

The new purpose-built £500,000 gym will offer high-quality fitness facilities for up to 1,500 members from July this year.

The eight-week building programme is already underway on the 5,280 square feet gym, which will create six new jobs under the leadership of general manager Graham Lilley.

Situated in the Moor Allerton Centre, the business is owned by entrepreneur Mike Racz and business partner Roland Zicska.

Racz, who also runs an Anytime Fitness facility in Gateshead as well as owning Domino’s Pizza and Costa Coffee franchises, said: “Our new Leeds facility does exactly what it says on the tin.

“From July, we’ll be offering 247 fitness in convenient and affordable state-of-the-art facilities, including cutting edge strength training and cardio equipment.

“Demand for 24-hour gyms is very much on the rise. With people leading increasingly busy lifestyles, the opportunity to fit in a work-out at any time of the day or night is now crucial.

“Moor Allerton is a great location. It’s a very much up and coming area of Leeds with plenty of local parking available, so we’re expecting to fill up membership places very quickly. In fact, we’re already taking members now.

“We’re confident those looking to keep on top of their fitness will be impressed with our facilities and prices, and we’re already on the look-out for potential locations for further Anytime Fitness venues in and around Leeds.”

Members will receive access to exclusive classes, top class facilities and personal trainers.

To ensure a safe environment at all times, there are private bathrooms and showers, integrated access and security, remote monitoring of surveillance systems and personal safety devices.
