As part of Small Business Saturday, a grassroots campaign to promote local small businesses, Nick Gibb visited Dream Fitness in Bognor Regis.
The gym was founded in 2014 by Gary and Holly Kellaway. It started on the middle floor of number 64 High Street, Bognor Regis. It is now a high-spec gym on all three floors. It is open 24 hours and has nearly 2000 members. The subscription is £20 per month.
Gary and Holly recently opened a second gym in Selsey, that has over 700 members.
Nick Gibb said: “I always admire people who risk everything to set up their own business. Although Gary had many years of experience as a fitness trainer in the big gym chains, he and Holly borrowed money and put their savings into setting up a gym of their own.
“The gym is now hugely successful because of the quality of the equipment and premises and the attentiveness of the staff and trainers. I wish Gary and Holly continued success in providing a high quality but affordable gym for our town.”
