BOSSES at a gym are looking to expand and offer aerobics and yoga classes.

An application has been submitted for a new two-storey building with the studio on the first floor and ground floor parking.

The site is owned by Pro-Physique Fitness Gymnasium on the former Laund Mill, Great Harwood, which was in danger of being left derelict.

In the planning statement it said: The gymnasium is used by locals many of whom arrive on foot. Its membership is approximately 600, with many using the facility on a daily basis.

The owners offer bespoke training programmes and has a referral scheme with local GPs who prescribe exercise for their patients who have a number of medical conditions that exercise can help to remedy.

To address the growing need for aerobics and yoga and other types of class based exercise they need to provide additional space which cannot be accommodated within the current building. In order to do this it must grow.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak the gym needs to provide more floor area to allow members to use the facility properly when it re-opens. To achieve this the first floor of the proposed building would be used as additional floor space for the activities that will be moved from the existing gym to this new space.

The ground floor space will be used as car parking.

The new aerobics and yoga studio will provide jobs for two full-time instructors and two part-time instructors along with cleaning staff and a maintenance role.

The upper floor level will be an open studio floor area with entrance from ground floor, having its own uni-sex disabled toilet.

The studio floor space is designed to accommodate classes of 10 people each with space to carry out the aerobic moves without impeding the pupil next to them.

There will be four classes per day between 8am and noon and five between 1.30pm and 5pm.
