Oldham Community Leisure (OCL), which manages 14 leisure facilities on behalf of the local council in Oldham, will open its first budget gym later this year.

The Glogym-branded facility will be housed at OCL's existing Glodwick Pool site and facilities will include a newly-installed 19-station gym with CV equipment from Technogym and a resistance kit zone as well as a free-form swimming pool.

Memberships will be made available at £14.99 per month; £59.99 for three months; and £165 for 12 months. All membership packages include use of the gym and pool; swimming lessons; access to organised men- and women-only exercise sessions; and water-based exercise classes. For an additional fee, members can access nutritional support and on-line personal training.

The 860sq ft (80sq m) Glogym will be located adjacent to two GP practices and according to OCL chief executive, Ian Kendall, the intention is to form a vibrant exercise referral programme at the club.

"Glogym represents a bold step into combining a budget gym concept with the health needs of the community." he said.

"Glogym's immediate catchment is characterised by chronic ill-health and a high prevalence of coronary heart disease. It is hoped that this affordable option will make a significant impact in improving the wellbeing and health of the people living in the area."
