A DISUSED Kidderminster nightclub has undergone a transformation to become a unique new gym in the town.

Mark Crosby has invested more than £100,000 to convert the former Moet’s club in Dixon Street into Flexible Fitness.

Mr Crosby said he wanted to introduce a gym with a difference to the town with a focus on individual members’ health and well-being.

While the interior of the building has undergone a significant revamp to incorporate a unisex gym with training equipment, a coffee bar, Wi-Fi room and beauty room, many of the features such as the period brick work remains.

His investment has also seen the creation of jobs including four personal trainers and a holistic trainer who carries out Thai Yoga massages, crystal healing as well as conventional sports injury massages.

And it is this holistic approach in particular which has attracted the attention of health bosses in Wyre Forest and Mr Crosby said he is currently in discussions with the NHS on incorporating GP referrals to Flexible Fitness.

He said: “Flexible doesn't resemble your stereotypical gym.

“It was crumbling and a bit of a state when I took over. But there is now a unique atmosphere and character in the place with its period brick building and engineering features.

“I wanted Flexible Fitness to be a totally new experience and give people the individual attention they probably wouldn’t get from other gyms.

“We value people’s health and wellbeing and we want to ensure they get the most out of their time in terms of physical training, nutrition and wellbeing by giving them one-to-one advice and support.

“There is no fixed contracts here and we don’t want the gym to be overcrowded. The bar sells the healthiest snacks and coffees and people often sit and chat about their problems and wind down after the stresses of work.

“We have a GP who comes here and it was he who has recommended us for NHS referrals, saying we would be perfect for them.”

Among the classes held are mixed martial arts and fitness with professional MMA fighter David ‘Demolition Man’ Khalsa, yoga classes and fitness boot camps.

And it is already being used by service users of a range of groups including Bosom Buddies breast cancer support group.
