easyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou’s latest venture, easyGym, is set to open a new branch in the former Fitness First premises, beneath the Aldi store which was also gutted by fire during the unrest.

The 20,000sq ft unit will become a “fully air-conditioned, state-of-the-art” gym, which will create more than 20 jobs.

The firm is running a promotion for the first 300 members to join before it opens on December 30, offering them membership for £4.99 per month for the first three months. The full price is £17.99 per month.

easyGym’s CEO Paul Lorimer-Wing said: “easyGym is challenging the conventions of both the budget and the premium gyms in the same radical way that its sister brand easyJet transformed air travel. We are very excited about opening in Tottenham, and transforming a building with a sad past into something positive.”
