The name of the firm which is to operate the new gymnasium to be installed on the ground floor of the former Robert Smith car showroom is “Anytime Fitness” .
A planning application has been made to the Vale of Glamorgan Council to install new signage on the outside of the building which will include a sign over the door and a separate illuminated panel on the pavement to the right of the main entrance.
Work has been underway for several days on the interior of the building. All signs of its previous existence as a car showroom have now been removed, including the outside ramp which enabled cars to be driven to the first floor – and the initials “RS” on the keystone of the building (even though they are included in the architectural drawing).
As the name suggests – the new fitness centre will be in operation around the clock 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is due to open shortly. Anytime Fitness describes itself as “the largest co-ed gym chain in the world with nearly 3,500 branches” There are 130 clubs open in the UK with “a further 150 getting ready to launch”.
