Dunfermline to get Pure Gym

June 8, 2017 by  

Pure Gym, a company that has become the biggest operator of gymnasiums in the UK, is set to launch its very first outlet in Dunfermline, after Fife Council gave the plans the go-ahead.

The gym will be occupying the building formerly home to a branch of Halfords, in Carnegie Retail Park. The company is intending to carry out a full conversion of the building in order to turn it into a gym. Once completed and opened, it will be open 24 hours a day.

The unit in question has lain vacant since Halfords closed down, nearly three years ago, so the move by Pure Gym represents excellent news for the town. It already has over 150 UK gyms, having expanded rapidly in the eight years since it was founded.

Once it opens, the facility in Dunfermline will feature changing rooms, cardiovascular equipment, a spin studio, a free weights area and studio space. According to the Dunfermline Press, Pure Gym said in its statement that:

“It will create new jobs, make appropriate use of a currently vacant site, expand the commercial leisure offer of Dunfermline and provide affordable access to good-quality fitness facilities in a highly-sustainable location.”

As with other facilities in the town, this gym will have the option of using places that supply leaflet printing, if it wants to make sure residents are aware of it.
