Anytime Fitness has signed a 15-year lease of premises at Lynch Wood Park.
The health club operator will move into a 14,000 square foot space on the ground floor of the Grade II listed office building that once served as a restaurant.
The space will be dedicated to state-of-the-art cardio and weight training equipment, functional training areas and a studio for group exercise classes as well as private bathrooms.
The club will also host a series of nutrition seminars, mental health workshops and an on-site athletic therapist.
A development is underway to transform what was the building’s former restaurant and allow the global fitness brand to open later this year.
Jaspal Singh, owner of Anytime Fitness, said, “I’m really looking forward to putting community at the heart of our proposition at Lynch Wood Park.
“We will work to provide a range of initiatives that improve well-being as well as physical fitness.
“I have already started the recruitment process and I am delighted that these full-time positions are being awarded to highly motivated and talented individuals from the Peterborough area.
A spokesperson for park operator FI Real Estate Management said: ‘With over 2,000 staff here, we are sure the addition of the gym will be popular.
“There is a tremendous community spirit at Lynch Wood Park and the new facilities will complement our strategy of fostering that spirit while encouraging work-life balance.”
“We are truly delighted to welcome Anytime Fitness to the Lynch Wood Park family and provide the space this global gym brand needs to successfully serve the people of Peterborough. »
The deal with Anytime Fitness is part of a master plan for Lynch Wood Park that will see the estate revolutionized into a hub for the 21st century business community.
Additional plans include the creation of a new restaurant and food center, the renovation of all common areas and the redevelopment of the lake located within the compound.
A new reception is already in place as well as toilets in the Nene building.
Anytime Fitness clubs are independently owned by local business people looking to support the health of their local communities, with over 185 locations now open across the UK and Ireland.
Lynch Wood Park club is owned by Peterborough-based Jaspal Singh, who owns the second Anytime Fitness facility at Ortongate Shopping Centre, in addition to a portfolio of care homes in the area.
