Stessa Leisure continues its expansion plans of establishing a portfolio of énergie fitness clubs across the North East, by opening a new Stockton site, following successful acquisitions of three gyms over the last few years.

The énergie Fitness club offers its members state-of-the-art facilities including an exclusive new training concept called ‘The Yard’, a fitness playground, which involves high intensity classes. The aim is to help its members develop new life style habits to achieve their personal fitness goals.

Adam Thompson, founder of Stessa Leisure said: “With the growth of our current memberships across our existing sites, we were looking for a further opportunity to expand our presence across the region and we identified Stockton as a target site, and we feel it brings a unique offering to the area.

“We believe there is a place in the market for énergie Fitness, particularly among non-gym users as we have developed a welcoming and encouraging environment with specialist exercise plans, which are ideal for new starters to help them achieve the healthy lifestyle results they want.”

Andy Bennett, club manager at the Stockton site said: “This new gym concept brings together the combination of a welcoming and supportive environment which is suitable for both beginners and advanced fitness enthusiasts.

“We have already got a fantastic team of personal trainers and support staff, who are really excited to work with people to help them achieve their goals.”

Stessa Leisure was advised by commercial law firm, Square One Law. Ian Gilthorpe, senior partner said: “We’re delighted continue to work with Adam and see further commercial developments and investment into the Tees Valley area.”
