A NEW gym is coming to Winchester next month.

David Lloyd Leisure is opening a studio in Andover Road on February 1 offering a range of services including personal training, special short-term courses, running clubs and physiotherapy.

The new build is part of a £500,000 investment in three new sites, with the first opened in Putney in October 2012.

Hazel Geary, David Lloyd Leisure’s product development director, said: "We are very proud to open our second David Lloyd Studio in Winchester, an exciting, innovative concept designed to offer David Lloyd Leisure's services and expertise in a flexible, accessible format that makes it as easy as possible for clients to achieve their health and fitness goals.

"We are also delighted that our investment in David Lloyd Studio Winchester will help to boost the local economy and enhance the vitality and viability of the town centre."

David Lloyd studios also have shops selling healthy snacks and sports equipment.
