A brand new state-of-the-art gym is set to open in Lanarkshire.
Succeed Group Fitness (SGF) will launch the new studio in Rutherglen Exchange shopping centre.
SGF currently already has one gym in Wishaw, with the new Rutherglen venue set to open on Monday, August 22.
The South Lanarkshire facility will focus on transformation challenge bootcamps, as well as classes and personal training.
Martin Barrett of SGF told Lanarkshire Live: “The first gym was opened in 2013 by Andrew McGee. We have expanded the Wishaw gym to the unit next door to more than double the size.
'I completed the F45 challenge, and I finally feel better about myself'
Spoiler: it's nowhere near as terrifying as you might think.I never pictured myself doing anything *remotely* like the F45 Challenge. Like most perfectionists, I can’t stand to be bad at anything new. So when, years ago at my first-ever HIIT class, a mean instructor barked at me to look "less confused", I left and never looked back. I spent most of my twenties dipping in and out of yoga, barre, running, and Pilates. Things that felt...less intimidating.
“That allowed us to run our classes, bootcamps and transformation challenge style group workouts.
“We felt like Rutherglen and surrounding areas were crying out for a gym where you can go and be guaranteed amazing results, regardless if you've been exercising for years or have never set foot in a gym in your life.
“Our unique approach means everyone can finally achieve their goals and build a better, fitter, healthier life for themselves.
“Being located in Rutherglen Exchange shopping centre gives us a perfect central location, a newly refurbished unit for our state-of-the-art gym equipment, and an opportunity for collaboration with the local businesses nearby.
“It has been a busy process. From getting all the exact kits ordered to the refurbishment of the unit in Rutherglen Exchange. But we can't wait to show everyone the finished result.
