NT3 Commercial has completed the letting of a west Hull building that is the site of a new city gym.
NT3 in John Street, city centre, has let the premises in Boulevard to Lydia Mallinson, founder of Boulevard Belles Fitness Suite.
As previously reported by the Mail, Ms Mallinson put her wedding plans on hold to set the gym up after Motorcise - the Savile Street gym she used to attend - closed without warning last September.
She used her savings to buy the equipment and has now established her new venture in the premises off Anlaby Road.
Speaking shortly after Motorcise closed down, Ms Mallinson, who suffers from fibromyalgia, amuscular condition, said she was a regular user of the gym.
She said: "I had been a member of Motorcise for about 14 months and used to go three times a week.
"I have an illness and, like many of the members, the gym really helped my condition.
"But it is not just the gym the members miss - it is the camaraderie.
"A lot of friendships had been built up over eight years or so and these were important as well."
Jacqui Trott, partner at NT3, said Ms Mallinson was so interested in the property, she snapped it up straight away.
However, she said the deal had taken time to complete because planning permission for change of use on the building, originally office space, was required before the gym could go ahead.
Mrs Trott said: "I'm very pleased to have had the opportunity to work closely with our clients to meet the requirements of Lydia and her colleagues in providing this much-needed facility. We wish Lydia and the Boulevard Belles all the best in the future."
