David Lloyd launches high street gym chain

David Lloyd Leisure, the tennis-based health and fitness club group, said yesterday it plans to launch a chain of smaller studios on British high streets to target busy workers looking for more flexible workout regimes. The group, controlled by London & Regional and Caird Capital, said it will invest £500,000 in opening three trial sites, with the first site due to open in Putney next month.

The DL Studios will be non-membership based and offer personal training sessions as well as group exercise classes.
