New Puregym opening soon in Kidbrooke

Puregym Kidbrooke opened in December 2019

Low-cost fitness company Puregym are opening a new branch at the new Kidbrooke Village blocks near the station on 20th December.

The company are attempting to lure customers both locally and beyond with an extremely low cost of £10.99 a month for the first sex months of a contract. Full price is normally less than £20.

New pub

The gym joins a Sainsbury’s and Young’s pub named The Depot.

Kidbrooke Village will see 5,300 homes from Berkeley Homes when complete plus 600 hmes from a TfL joint development north of the tracks. Other sites could progress such as Moorhead Way in coming years so they’ll be no shortage of custom.

The introduction of low-cost gyms has hit membership numbers at a number of Better operated gyms for Greenwich Council. This may tempt some from the Eltham Centre if they only use the gym. The Eltham Centre also has a pool and various other facilities.

Another gym located in the area is David Lloyd who aim towards a more expensive segment of the market. They last week submitted plans to expand – and add another 84 car parking spaces on what is green Metropolitan Open Land.

    Gyms are okay if properly managed and do not become places where drugs etc are dealt. I do think these will have an affect on the Leisure Centres operated by Greenwich Council like the Eltham Centre unless you want to swim as no swimming pools provided.
