Pure Gym manager Julie Suggitt
Staff from Leicester’s newest city centre gym will be getting participants of this Sunday’s (22nd May) Rainbows Walk of Life warmed up for the event as they embark on the five or 15 mile course.
Pure Gym, a low cost, no contract, 24 hour gym, which set to open on Walnut Street next month, is showing it support for Rainbows and National Children’s Hospice Week by lending a hand at the super hero themed race warm up.
Rainbows hopes around 700 people will take part in the event and Pure Gym will make sure they’re all stretched and their muscles warmed through.
Julie Suggitt, Gym Manager said, “We are delighted to be supporting the Walk of Life event this weekend. Our expert fitness professionals will be on hand to make sure all the participants are prepared for the walk.
“We’ll be doing a series of fun and easy exercises to music, which are suitable for all ages and abilities and will ensure that no one pulls a muscle or strains themselves during the event.”
Cathy Bown, Event Fundraiser at Rainbows added, “We’re really grateful to Pure Gym and all the other companies who are supporting our Walk of Life. Everyone’s looking forward to a super hero warm up before setting off!”
Pure Gym, which has secured premises at the old Sturgis Land Rover garage on Walnut Street, will open its doors in June. Refurbishment work is progressing well and will see the former garage transform into a state of the art, 24 hour, low cost, no contract club with more than 220 pieces of the latest exercise equipment.
This new opening forms part of Pure Gym’s ambitious expansion plan to open 15 new sites in the next year. The Leicester project is the fourteenth gym in the company’s portfolio. The club will provide its members with some of the best fitness equipment available including TRX suspension trainer, Lance Armstrong’s LIVESTRONG spin bikes by Matrix and vibrating Bodycore functional training platforms.
The fully air conditioned gym will also offer its members over 40 free classes per week including spinning, circuits and legs, bums and tums. They will also offer additional specialist classes, such as Zumba from just £2. Members will receive a free exercise induction and access to a dedicated member’s area on the website complete with online training and nutritional advice. A personal training service will also be available.
