Snap Fitness 24/7 will fill three of the four unoccupied units of the Thetford Riverside Development, on Bridge Street.

The gym will be around 5,000sq ft in size and will include state-of-the-art equipment and will be fitted with screens to allow users to enjoy television, social media and Netflix.

The first Snap Fitness 24/7 in Norfolk, it will also host numerous classes, from core strength, to High-intensity interval training (HIIT), on-site and virtually.

It will fill three of the units at the £8m Riverside Complex, which have been vacant since it was opened officially in December 2016.
