  (October 27, 2011)

London, UK (PRWEB) October 27, 2011

With over 150 gyms in London, is now the largest network operator in the region with further expansion plans over the coming months set to include Manchester and Birmingham. Having enjoyed rapid growth since launching in February 2011, has now established itself as the premier provider of pay-as-you-go gym passes in the region.

The service is based on the provision of an online wallet called an eWallet which enables users to load credit to a free online account. Customers can then use this credit to purchase vouchers called ePasses which give them access to any participating gym. is also available for customers to use via an iPhone application, making the service fully mobile.

With over 150 gyms in London, is able to offer gym-goers access to exclusive members-only facilities as well as a wide range of gyms that already offer pay-as-you-go services at a significantly discounted rate with some gyms in London offering price discounts of up to 60% compared to what they usually charge.
By giving customers the chance to manage the amount they spend on gym use through an online wallet, has delivered real innovation to the fitness industry. This innovation was recently recognised by the Smarta Awards where was announced as one of the Smarta100 winners for 2011 alongside the likes of, Naked Wines and Crowdity.

Having established itself as the largest gym network in London, is now setting its sights on providing a national service with gyms currently being added in towns and cities across the UK. Gyms in Manchester and Birmingham are set to be launched through the network in the coming weeks. CEO, Jamie Ward said Our goal has always been to increase the overall number of people that use gyms in London by offering a flexible, cost-effective service. We strongly felt that a service like would be attractive to a new audience of gym users and attract new customers to the market. We are delighted that so many gyms in London have bought into this vision and are very excited about adding new towns and cities to our network over the next few months.
