CUT-PRICE gym chain PureGym is opening a new club in Bromsgrove this autumn.

The company, which has more than 240 gyms nationwide, will open a branch at Bromsgrove Retail Park this October, a spokesperson confirmed.

It will be based next to Lidl on the retail park, which is just off the Birmingham Road close to the town centre, opposite Bromsgrove Sporting Football Club.

PureGym is believed to be Britain's largest gym chain by membership, with more than a million members.

They offer free parking, contract-free memberships and 24/7 opening hours.

The official opening date for the gym has not yet been announced but the company says it is aiming for 'early October'.
