There’s a new gym in town ~ The Gym Group, Westwood


Before we begin, shall we talk about the elephant in the room?  Like how I’ve always admitted I love cake, and how the only exercise I ever do is 1-2 hours walking to and from school/nursery a day?

Well, I appear to have hit a time in life, where I’ve decided to stop moaning to my husband about the baby belly I still have 4 years after having my last child (let’s face it, it can’t be classed as a baby belly anymore, can it) and do something about it!

So the perfect timing of a brand new gym opening in my home town, literally across the road from my husbands work, is a dream come true!


Who are The Gym Group?

The Gym Group are an affordable, high spec, nationwide gym, with a goal to make everyone feel welcome.
It doesn’t matter what starting point you’re at, or where you want to go to in your fitness regime, they can help you.

Winners of the ‘Budget Gym of the Year Award’ at the National Fitness Awards 2011, The Gym Group understand how expensive other gym chains are, and, how unwelcome you can sometimes feel when walking in to a gym for the first time.
They think everybody deserves the support to reach their goals whatever they are, and they can do this without making you pay a premium or being tied into a contract.

A Brand New Gym!

gymOn the 18th of December, The Gym Group opens the doors on their brand new branch in Thanet.  The new 24 hour gym has the same outlook as it’s other branches-to make health and fitness facilities, accessible and affordable to everyone.

Benefits include 24 hour access to the state of the art gym and equipment, in a clean and safe environment, as well as exceptional customer service, at prices as low as £10.99 a month, with no commitment to a contract.

There will be no unnecessary add ons that members of the gym don’t use (or quite frankly just don’t want), and the excellent fitness classes that are wanted, are included in the monthly cost!

A word from the manager.

Matt Finch, manager of the new Thanet branch said; We’re really excited to be bringing The Gym Group’s award winning gym offering to Thanet, and welcoming new members through the doors in December.
We’re looking forward to supporting the local community, and helping people reach their fitness goals.
Our personal trainers will be on the gym floor to provide tours, inductions, and providing a helping hand to our new members.
There’s also a fantastic range of free classes for members to enjoy, which is all included in the new monthly price.
There is really no excuse to join and get in shape with our team of friendly fitness experts.

My fitness.

So here begins my fitness journey, with The Gym Group as my guide!  I’ll be posting regular updates, here on my website, and across my social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter), to keep you posted with my health and fitness status!

I’m slightly nervous about how I’ll get on, but I’m also excited to not only feel better about my body, but to help free myself of some of the issues I face with my mental health too-I read so much about exercise being good for anxiety and depression, so I’m putting my faith into improving that too.

Ultimately, I know I’ll be in safe hands with Matt and the team at The Gym Group-having been in contact with Matt for a while, I can already see how welcoming and helpful him and his staff are, and look forward to not feeling like an awkward weirdo every time I walk through those gym doors.

Keep an eye on the website and the new Health and Fitness section, as I’ll be sharing with you my fitness goals, and the current state of my body (apologies in advance for that).
