Anyone who was a member of Real Gym is being advised to go to JD Gyms in Market Street (two minutes walk away) to activate a membership there, members must opt-in for the membership.
Existing Real Gym memberships are being honoured by JD Gyms, but only for two months.

“I hope that the staff that worked their had some notice at least.
“Moving the memberships to JD Gyms is okay for those with membership left but Real Gym was charging £10.99 a month, or £19.99 for three months. JD Gyms charge £19.99 per month.”
