Former Leigh-on-sea Post Office to open as a Gym

February 23, 2023

There will soon be a new gym in Leigh-on-Sea with a new, locally owned Anytime Fitness gym to open in the town this summer.

The new gym will provide a regeneration of the former Post Office building in Rectory Grove, which has been vacant for several years. Anytime Fitness Leigh-on-Sea will create employment opportunities in the local area, with the club actively recruiting for full-time and part-time roles.

As a franchised business, the gym will be owned and operated by local couple Tony and Zoe Georgiou, who grew up in Leigh-on-Sea. The gym opening represents a dream come true for Zoe, who’s excited to be able to bring a community-first facility to her hometown.

“When this opportunity came up to open a gym where I grew up, it was something we wanted to grab with both hands,” said Zoe. “The former Post Office site is incredibly well known in the area and we want to transform it into somewhere that’s of real benefit to the local community.”

Zoe has inspiration to call upon from her own family in regard to operating a local business, with her sister running The Refill Room, the popular zero waste, organic food shop on Elm Road.

“We know how important community is to the local area and that will be a huge influence on how we operate the gym. We want to be more than a gym and support local people in improving their wellbeing, mental health and physical independence. It’s also important to us that we champion other businesses in the area and forming mutually beneficial partnerships will be a key part of our offering.”

Anytime Fitness has over 185 clubs across the UK and Ireland, with all clubs independently owned by local entrepreneurs.

Anytime Fitness Leigh-on-Sea will provide members with an inclusive and welcoming environment for all fitness levels, as well as brand new state-of-the-art equipment, group exercise classes and expert coaching from its carefully recruited team.
