FITNESS experts who helped each other get into shape with their diet and exercise advice have opened a gym in Calne to share their secrets to getting healthy.

The Fitness Box gym on Porte Marsh Industrial Estate, Calne, is the dream of its four directors, including Monica Wells who launched the business after having battles with her own health.

Director Monica Wells said: “I was personally really struggling to see results in my own body shape and weight, even though I was working out 4 times a week and eating a healthy diet. I asked one of the trainers to write me a diet plan that I would stick to. Sure enough through small changes made to both my training and my diet, overseen by Glen, I lost 2 stone in weight and feel in the best shape ever.

Once the gym is open the owners hope to introduce CrossFit classes to the town, as well as therapy sessions.

The 1500 sq. foot gym includes weightlifting gear, climbing rope and gymnastic rings is hosting an open weekend on October 13 and 14.

The business is jointly owned by 4 Directors Monica Wells, Glen Babbage, Joe Jefferies and Alex Wallace.
