Hundreds have already signed up for The Gym - an unambiguously named new fitness centre off Caledonian Road, which opened its doors last week. 

The chain has more than 190 sites across the UK and attracted members with a £14.99-a-month offer with no joining fee. 

Ten jobs have been created at the Sterling Way site and hundreds of members are already on the books, according to a spokesman.

The centre boasts 12,000sq ft in gym space and has more than 100 pieces of equipment. These include: Plate-loaded strength equipment, a huge free weights area, Olympic lifting platforms, functional training spaces and cardio machines.
