‘AN EASYJET of the gym world’ in Weston has closed down to join forces with another gym in the town.

No-frills Gym Central in North Street has shut its doors after bosses decide to merge with Sweat Fitness Academy in Winterstoke Road.

The move comes despite Gym Central experiencing its best year yet in business turnover and attendance since opening in 2007.

Owner Robin O’Neil said members would benefit from the switch, which came about ‘in the spirit of co-operation’.

He said: “We are delighted to have reached agreement with Sweat Fitness Academy and believe the hard work we have put in together with the goodwill inherited will benefit loyal membership.

Sweat Fitness Academy held a special open evening for members of Gym Central last week.

Owner Stuart Davies said: “The opening weekend was organised for members to make their own judgment on the academy rather than getting information third hand.

“Some members of the public still don’t realise that we have a great weights gym, fitness studio and treatment room, and we are not solely a martial arts and boxing centre.”
