PORTISHEAD’S sport and fitness industry has received a £100,000 investment.

The personal investment has involved the relocation of The Fitness Hub gym from its original site in Kestrel Court, Harbour Road, to larger premises in Old Mill Road.

Owners, former world champion kick boxer, Andy Cleeves and his wife Claire, have pulled out all the stops to overhaul a former warehouse, transforming it into a 21st century fitness facility.

Claire said: “This is a family-run business and we want to make sure there is something to appeal to people of all ages and fitness levels. Our aim is to provide a relaxed environment and quality training with equipment and classes to suit everyone from the complete novice to professional sports men and women.”

The new gym has a women’s only area, a spacious main studio, spin studio, cardio, power and resistance zones, with modern changing rooms and showers.
