The Bannatyne Group has continued its top-team reshuffle with the appointment of Scott Niven as group fitness manager.

Tasked with overseeing the ongoing development and refurbishment of the Bannatyne health club portfolio, Niven’s new role comes just a week after Duncan Bannatyne made three promotions in his management team.

Niven will be charged with continuing the fitness aspects of Bannatyne’s upmarket repositioning strategy. The Group is currently mid-way through a £16m investment programme to refurbish its 60-strong estate, with the company’s gyms receiving additional investment as part of a greater emphasis on functional training and technology.

Niven’s new role comes following an eight-year stint managing two Bannatyne health clubs in Scotland. The 39-year-old Leisure Management graduate began his career in the fitness industry as a PT and instructor, becoming one of the first in Scotland to teach BodyCombat. Later, he moved away from teaching into the world of management, and also spent four years as an operations manager for Nuffield Proactive Health.

“My key goals as group head of fitness are to provide our membership with best possible equipment and environments, and the advice and support that they need to realise their own fitness and lifestyle ambitions,” said Niven.

“The Bannatyne Group is constantly looking for new opportunities to improve its offering, which is where my experience of creating a holistic approach to wellbeing, which combines nutrition, relaxation and fitness, will be of great use.”
