Hit the gym and live a longer happier life
ONE of the Tweed's busiest intersections will now be home to a 24-hour gym, following the opening of Anytime Fitness on the corner of Minjungbal and Machinery Drs this month.
Anytime Fitness, located just outside Tweed City Shopping Centre, will have all the latest equipment from weights to cardio machines.
It will also offer an active over-50s program, which will include group sessions three times a week and create a social environment to make new friends.
Club manager Laura Badger said: "With an aging population in Tweed, we really want to get them active and to prevent injuries and keep them living longer."
The gym joins three others in close vicinity on Minjungbal Dr, with fellow 24-hour operator Jetts Fitness at Tweed City, women's circuit gym Curves across the road and Genesis Fitness a block down the street at Tweed Hub shopping village.
Area manager Kristina Madigan said: "It's a great location. People doing their shopping in the area can drop in for a workout before, or after. It has easy access and easy parking behind the gym."
One of the more interesting aspects to the Anytime Fitness gyms is they have locations around the world. Become a member and you can use any of their more than 2500 gyms worldwide.
"The new concept of 24-hour gyms means more convenience for our members. With people working shift work and parents with children you don't have to work out in business hours," she said
"Being 24 hours it's not overly crowded, with people coming in at all hours and you're not restricted by public holidays."
The motto for Anytime Fitness is "feel something better". Staff encourage local average people to come in, work
out, get fit and live longer, and happier, lives.
