Xercise4less creates 40 jobs with expansion into Burnley

Budget gym operator Xercise4Less is preparing for its Burnley opening, creating more than 40 new jobs.

Xercise4LessOpening on Kingsway in the heart of Burnley on May 30, the new gym is the latest site to open in the North West, joining Bolton and Wigan.

Positions to be advertised include operations manager, membership manager, membership team, housekeeping team, personal trainers and freelance fitness instructors.

The group’s 19th site spans 36,000 sq ft and will hold over 400 state of the art pieces of equipment including MATRIX cardiovascular fitness equipment and resistance machines, MyRide+ which is a virtual spin class, a full sized boxing ring with boxing bags and a large free weights area.

The gym, like all other Xercise4Less branches, will have a women’s only area, a large fitness studio hosting more than 40 free classes per week and a team of personal trainers.

Chief executive officer Jon Wright said: “With Xercise4Less, we've set out to create 'The People's Gym' at each site, realising members use the facilities for lots of different reasons. We’re here to ensure people of all ages, and fitness levels, can benefit from great facilities, with cost not being a barrier. The fitness industry has become very greedy and there’s no need to charge members sky high prices - a good gym can be run very economically. We’re excited about our further expansion and will continue to extend our services over time to suit the needs of all our members." Xercise4Less was recently awarded Budget Gym of the Year for the second year running at the National Fitness Awards.
