A Teesside health and fitness business is set to grow after being appointed to operate a new gym facility.

Health Performance Ltd, based in Middlesbrough, has secured the contract to manage and run a newly created health and fitness centre at Wilton Centre.

The Lakeside Gym development at the privately-owned business and science park, set next to the Wilton site between Redcar and Middlesbrough, is set to open to Wilton Centre tenants and their employees in September.

Nick Smith, MD of Health Performance, who will be in charge of running the facility, is recruiting three health and fitness coaches to be based at the new gym to provide personal training and fitness classes.

More roles will be created once the gym is up and running.

Smith said: “I am elated about the opportunity at Wilton Centre. I have been working on this project for the last two years so it is a huge relief that it is finally happening. I have always dreamed of running and owning my own health and fitness club to allow me to deliver what I know members want and need, which is excellent levels of service.”

“This is one of my biggest projects to date and ultimately my aim is to grow the business further and become the recognised expert in our region for everything health and fitness related in a corporate environment. My philosophy is if you look after your employees they will look after your members.”
