A Pontefract gym – saved from closure earlier this year – officially opened last week after a major revamp.

Company BPL took over the former Fitness First gym at Park Road retail part in January, saving all of its nine staff’s jobs and creating three new roles at the new Fitness Flex gym.

The gym closed for a week at the end of May for a refit and the refurbished premises were opened on Friday by Castleford Tigers’ players including Lee Gilmour, Stephen Nash and James Clare.

Neil Mills, manager at the gym, said: “We managed to turn the old site into an outstanding Fitness Flex within seven days.”

The gym now includes 150 pieces of new equipment and offers more than 40 exercise classes. For more information visit www.fitnessflex.org.uk or call 01977 781990.
