A new gym opens in Irvine as the country emerges from lockdown

A Dundonald man has opened a state-of-the-art facility in Irvine.

Scott Brown, who raised £ 100,000 for charity after a decade of strenuous fitness challenges, opened Scott Brown Fitness (SBF) gym on Monday.

Originally from Irvine, Scott made the leap into the gym opening on Ailsa Road near the beach while stuck in jail.

“I had a gym in Tarbolton and a lot of my clients are from North Ayrshire. My heart always went there when I first opened three and a half years ago,” said Scott.

“In this suspension I thought if I don’t do this jump now it will be a lot more difficult.

“The opening day was great. Everyone was respectful with social distancing and the place looked great. I couldn’t wait to get people to practice.”

SBF has the latest equipment, an outdoor obstacle area, and even a hanging tree in the gym for clients to try climbing.

The gyms were ordered to close on Boxing Day 2020 for an initial two-week period that spanned a four-month period.

Now the gyms in the area are full to the brim.
