A member of the Beauchamp Gym is angry and questions the decision over the closure after it was announced that the gym is to shut down in two weeks’ time.
Sean De Silva, 22, has been a member of the gym since 2012 and believes the decision is rash and is ‘quite appalled’.
He said; “This is the closest gym to me, it is local and very appealing and just does the job for me so I’m not sure what I’m going to do next.”
The Oadby-based gym is joined alongside the Beauchamp college and has been open since 2006.
With a dedicated weight room and 12 treadmills alongside a fitness studio, Sean says he is confused on the closure.
Sean adds; “Some of these people I have known for years come here, I used to go college here, people who went university come back to train together. The decision is bad.”
