A former supermarket unit in Worthing’s Guildbourne Centre will open as a gym on Saturday.

The Gym Hub, to be run by Impulse Leisure, which operates Adur District Council’s recreational facilities, will open its doors from 12pm.

The long-empty unit was previously home to the Somerfield supermarket.

“The unit is perfect and it will make more people come into the centre,” said marketing coordinator Lauren Bullen.

Prospective members will be able to join the gym for £20 a month, with no contract.

A 24-hour Facebook competition to win a year’s free membership was won by Emma Bullock.

The first 100 people to sign up will receive a ‘VIP membership’, including a lifetime membership fee freeze, special welcome pack and merchandise.

Ruth Stevens, who will manage the gym, said: “I’m so excited to be part of this venture.

“The Gym Hub is a great addition to Worthing town centre and can’t wait for people to see it.

“I’m really passionate about this new project and can’t wait to meet all of our new members.”
