A new gym is set to open in Welwyn Garden City later this month, much to the excitement of its owners.

The Training Zone in Swallow Lane – near the Shredded Wheat Factory – will welcome fitness fanatics for the first time on January 10, with plenty for gym goers to look forward too.

The brand new, state-of-the-art, modern facility comprises a 3,000sqft gym with brand new equipment and racks, ventilation, air conditioning, heating, showers and toilets.

The Training Zone is run by Hertfordshire-born brothers Alex and Matt Clementson, who have chosen Welwyn Garden City to realise their long-held ambition to run their own community class-based CrossFit and fitness gym.

“The Training Zone offers a range of classes using a variety of equipment and bodyweight functional movements and includes TTZ CrossFit, high intensity interval training and bootcamps and more.

“We want to be a friendly hub for physical and mental self-improvement.
