The company behind a £2 million gym for Allenton has confirmed an opening date for the new venture.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that JD Gyms had signed a lease on a 28,000 sq ft unit in Osmaston Road, Allenton.
At the time, the firm said that it planned to have the gym open by the end of November. Now, JD Gyms has confirmed an opening date of Wednesday, November 29.
Once open, gym members will have access to hundreds of pieces of equipment and benefits, including free weights and strength areas; over 300 classes a month; boot camp, boxing and a “prowler” track; sprint track and rig; saunas; luxury changing rooms and free car parking.

While the finishing touches are made to the gym, the business is signing up members.
Membership will cost £19.99 a month – with no contract or joining fee. But those who sign up now will be in with a chance to get their first month for just £5.
In a post on JD Gym Derby’s Facebook page it said: “Our grand opening will be on Wednesday, November 29 at 1pm.
“Don’t miss out on claiming your discount place when our final wave of 200 memberships go on sale soon.”
Speaking earlier this month, Alun Peacock, managing director at JD Gyms, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be bringing a low-cost gym with a difference to Derby.
As well as state-of-the-art equipment, the new gym will offer a range of fitness classes
“We’ll be offering exceptional fitness facilities, an unrivalled class timetable, luxury surroundings and saunas in a convenient location on a highly affordable basis.
“A gym of this calibre in this area has been a long time coming and we cannot wait to open the doors.”
