A NEW gym is being developed in the town centre which is expected to open in August.

Work has started already on converting the former Clothing Direct store on Shambles Street which will become Lifestyle Fitness health club.

There will be about 100 cardio vascular exercise machines, as well as strength equipment and weights, and saunas in both the male and female changing rooms.

The budget gym is expected to offer memberships for £12.99 a month.

There are about 30 Lifestyle Fitness clubs around the country.
