A new 16,000-square-foot gym is set to open in Watford.

PureGym will be unveiling a new site in Waterfields Retail Park's former Argos unit, on December 1, offering low cost 24/7 access.

The company says it will have hundreds of pieces of equipment, a huge range of classes, and certified personal trainers.

There will also be free parking available at the site.

A PureGym spokesperson said: “We are delighted to be bringing the UK’s favourite gym to Watford. Our newest gym is an exciting addition to the local area offering members access to state-of-the-art fitness facilities to use 24/7 to achieve their fitness goals, all at great value.

“We look forward to welcoming new members to PureGym Watford Waterfields - look out for our opening offer.”

PuerGym added that the opening will benefit the economy with around 12 jobs created and increased footfall brought to the retail park, which is also home to Boots, Smyths, Next, Costa Coffee.

It is set to open in the former 16,000-square-foot (around the size of three basketball courts) Argos unit, after it closed last year.
