New EasyGym brand to launch

EasyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou is set to launch a chain of easyGyms across the UK. He plans to open the first two gyms in summer, with the aim of rolling out 10 sites a year from next year. He will be working on the project with private equity firm Fore Fitness. Like other “easy” brands, the gyms will focus on value for money, with no contracts and prices starting at £15 a month.
