Leisure Trust GLL has opened its first standalone budget gym in Bexleyheath, East London.

Gym Bexleyheath houses 92 pieces of the Technogym cv and resistance equipment, a dedicated free weights and stretch area, plus modern changing facilities.

In order to keep costs to a minimum the reception area is self-service - although yhe gym will be staffed at all times. The cost of membership has been set at £19.95 a month.

GLL initially entered the budget club sector with its Gym-London brand in 2008 but so far the concept has worked mainly as an option for members to gain limited, gym-only access at full-service leisure centres operated by GLL.

GLL Operations Director Andy McCabe comments, "The aim of this new venture is to offer a "no frills" approach to fitness, but without compromising on standards.

"GLL is a new entrant to the budget gym market. However the concept behind Gym Bexleyheath sits well with our corporate commitment to making high quality fitness and leisure facilities more accessible, while we already offer a low cost, discount membership - gym LONDON - within many of the leisure centres we operate."

GLL will also offer a special youth membership (for people aged 11-15 years-old) at off-peak hours, priced at £12.50 per month.

McCabe added: "Unlike many other fitness facilities, we are delighted to welcome younger members during off peak periods."

Other leisure trusts to have launched budget gyms include Aspire Sports and Cultural Trust, Bay Leisure and Kirklees Active Leisure.
