Sunil and Abid are the entrepreneurs behind Newcastle based gym Body Zone. The pair describe Body Zone as "an incredible facility, in the heart of Newcastle City Centre, at an unbelievable price." Body Zone offers consumers a fast, convenient and affordable workout in a state-of-the-art club just minutes from any point in the city centre or your home. The consumers can enjoy the same quality equipment as the traditional big clubs but without paying for the stuff they don’t use, like pools, jacuzzis, steam rooms, fluffy towels, cafes and large teams of sales and administration staff.
The membership process is fully automated, cutting the need for so many staff. Along with this Body Zone have streamlined the club and expenses in such a way that you can still enjoy a fantastic workout in a warm friendly environment.
As a result of this Body Zone can pass the savings they have made straight down to the customer. Body Zone charges members £15.99 a month with no contract and no catch.
