A TOP tennis coach and personal trainer have joined forces to open a brand new gym in Weymouth.

Julien Lawes and Nick Bell are currently putting the finishing touches to New Body Fitness on the Granby Industrial Estate.

The gym throws open its doors to the public for the first time on Saturday and Sunday (9am-5pm), offering a full range of exercise equipment and facilities.

“Nick has been saving up to start a gym for a while and I’ve helped him out with some funding,” said Lawes. “It’s our first gym and it is going to be the biggest gym in Weymouth.”

The gym is situated on Cambridge Road, opposite Pet Experience, and for more information log on to new-body.co.uk
