A new private members gym is being built in Honiton’s Heathpark Estate - and is expected to open next January.

The new facility, called B! Health and Fitness, has been set up thanks for a £300,000 investment.

The gym will create new jobs in Honiton as well as freelance instructor roles for local people.

Entrepreneur and gym owner Craig Bernhardt, who already runs a successful gym in Lyme Regis, said: “The Honiton gym is being developed as a bigger enterprise and with a floorspace of 6,000 square feet it will be one of the largest bespoke gyms in East Devon outside of Exeter.

“I’m really excited about bringing this project to fruition.

“The aim of B! Health & Fitness is to make professional and comprehensive training facilities accessible to anyone wanting to work towards improving their natural levels of fitness, whether they have previous experience of using a gym or not.”

The gym will be equipped with facilities suitable for a cross-section of abilities, from beginner to experienced athlete and trainer level.

It also includes Honiton’s first bespoke indoor cycling studio and intends to bring a variety of training styles.

Craig said: “As a private membership club, our purpose is to provide a holistic service that is based around individual aims and needs.

“Staff will engage at a personal level, to ensure members receive exactly the right support and motivation, from personal training through to nutritional advice.”

Various levels of membership will be available, with some levels having limited numbers. Members are being accepted from November on a first-come, first-served basis and the joining fee will be waived for anyone taking out a 12-month membership before the opening date.

Craig added: “We are intending to open the doors in early January, exactly the right time for anyone wanting to improve fitness levels for 2018.”
