OVER the last fortnight our readers have been nominating the top six gyms in Stroud, and for the next week we’ll be profiling each of them so you can choose the Stroud News & Journal Best Gym 2021 winner.
The third fitness facility we’re featuring this week is Fifth Dimension, which has been at the heart of fitness in Ebley for almost two decades.
On hearing they had been nominated, Manager Steph Burrows said: “After the gym having been through a difficult year – as everyone has – it’s really amazing.
“It’s been nice seeing people coming through the doors and being more confident to come back, especially our studio classes starting again on May 17.”
Across the country indoor classes, dance and yoga studios were opened for group sessions on May 17, as well as indoor fitness facilities such as climbing walls and swimming pools.
“I think being an independent gym, we’re really lucky that there is a close-knit community of members there.
“People being able to workout and exercising together always feels good. I think being able to do all that again has been really positive for everyone.
“If we won we would be over the moon. I think it would be a real confidence boost for the members of staff as we’re opening and rebuilding things again.”
