AN OLD workshop on an industrial estate could be given a new lease of life as a gym if Oxford City Council give the plans the green-light.

As it is, Unique Bodies Gym is based at Oxford City Rowing Club in Meadow Lane. But the rowing club is expanding and needs to reclaim the space taken by the gym.

So, the idea is that the 'no frills' gym will move into the empty workshop on Peterley Road on the Horspath Industrial Estate.

And if plans go ahead then the gym – that has no cafe or socialising space – will be open from 6am until 11pm.
