Fire-hit gym reopens
A CLEVEDON health club has reopened its doors after a fire left the building severely damaged.
Members of Body Management in Alexandra Road can now return to the gym almost a year after a fire broke out at the Old Market Hall building.
Formerly known as The Health Club, the fire at one end of the two-storey building occurred just more than a month after its new owner, Mike Oliver-Neck, took it on.
Since then, months of painstaking work have taken place to restore the Grade II-listed building including a restoration of the roof and the extension of the mezzanine floor.
The gym now boasts a new cardio theatre, new areas for weights and stretching, as well as a juice and smoothie bar. There is also a new therapy room and a chill out area.
