Staff are ready for the opening of the new Anytime Fitness gym in Cosham, Portsmouth which will provide 24/7 fitness facilities for up to 1,400 members.

The site will create seven new jobs in Portsmouth when it opens this month and is set to be open for use every day of the year.

Manager and co-owner David Bovey took over a run down unit and is giving the new 4,1000 square foot space a mammoth refurb which will feature a large studio, free weights area, pin-loaded weights, cardio section, private showers and a dry room.

The gym will also have an acoustic ceiling to prevent noise pollution to local residents.
