A mixed-martial arts (MMA) themed independent gym in Kings Lynn is hoping to provide members with a knock-out experience at its new 13,000sq ft (1,208sq m) site, which was formerly a laser quest.

Having launched two years ago, Heros Gym has moved to the larger premises to accommodate its growing member base, with Ben Tansley and his team largely renovating the property themselves.

As well as a fully-equipped gym area, the club also offers a class studio, group cycling studio, a dedicated high level boxing training area, supplement shop, café and sports massage facilities.

The gym area features an extensive range of Life Fitness and Hammer Strength equipment, featuring pieces from the Insignia, Integrity and Elevation ranges including the new FlexStrider variable-stride trainer and PowerMill climber. Members also have access to Hammer Strength Motion Technology Selectorised (MTS) equipment, HD Elite and Hammer Strength Plate Loaded equipment. Jordan Fitness supplied the free weights, functional equipment, studio equipment and the first example of its brand new Ignite Rig.

“Heros Gym is well-known in the local area for its expertise in MMA and boxing,” said Tansley. “In our new location, we can offer a far greater range of facilities and it has helped us broaden our appeal to the local community.”
