Xercise4Less M.D Jon Wright is bringing a new, budget gym for York Road in Doncaster.

WORK has begun on a new gym which could bring up to 60 new jobs to Doncaster.

Budget gym operator Xercise4less has started developing a 32,500 sqft site on York Road on the site of the former John Peter’s store.

The new gym, due to open in May, will host over 40 free classes a week, ranging from zumba to spin, as well as full boxing facilities, including a 16ft boxing ring.

The Doncaster gym will be the fifth of the gym chain to open in the UK with sites already operating in Wakefield, Castleford, Stockton-On-Tees and Leeds.

Xercise4Less MD Jon Wright said: “Our existing gyms are experiencing great success as people are enjoying the flexibility of our membership and the wide range of activities available to them for a very low cost monthly fee.

“We’re now working on a roll out plan to supply the increasing customer demand for budget gym’s across the country and are delighted that Doncaster is to be one of our new homes.

“Our model is based on charging as little as possible, not as much as we can get away with. We are truly revolutionising the industry. In these times of austerity, we feel we are providing an excellent facility with unbeatable customer service, all at a very affordable price.”
