Places has also acquired gyms in Hinckley and Telford
There’ll be three more gyms added to the Places Gym portfolio after contracts were exchanged to acquire Simply Gyms in Chesterfield, Hinckley and Telford.
Sandra Dodd, chief executive of Places for People Leisure said: “Our Places Gyms are designed to offer a more convenient and inviting place for people of all abilities to come and enjoy a more active lifestyle.
“As part of the acquisition significant investments are planned within the three clubs for next year which we hope will ensure that we create vibrant, attractive and imaginative places that can’t help but encourage people to be more active.
“Over the coming weeks we will be working closely with Simply Gym to ensure a smooth handover and are looking forward to welcoming the Simply staff into the Places for People Family.”
Places for People Leisure is a social enterprise and is one of the largest leisure operators in the UK. Places launched their first low-cost gym in May 2015, and currently manage more than 100 leisure facilities including gyms in Sheffield, Preston and Corby.
Places take over the Simply Gyms on 15 December. Head here for more information about Places.
