A NEW fitness centre marked its opening with a free session last weekend.

Body By Lekan, based in Telford Road, opened on Sunday last week with a free bootcamp lesson for attendees.

The facility was set up by three friends - former athlete and current trainer Lekan Oluyemi, along with Saswata Barman and Bikram Banerjee who joined in to help setting up the company.

Operating out of the Store and Secure building at the top of Telford Road, the new fitness centre has facilities for an array of types of exercise.

Saswata said: “Our idea was to provide a low-cost solution to physical fitness and to deliver it at a price that was affordable, and through our infrastructure and our new way of conducting the admin, we have passed on that saving to the customer.”
