A new fitness hub could be opened in Ely city centre if planners give the idea the go ahead.
Dawn Lamb, who is passionate about encouraging individuals and families to enjoy working out, is hoping to open Elyte Fitness in Broad Street next year.
The mum of four has been a fitness instructor for 26 years and already runs bootcamp and a range of classes including cross fit, body sculpt, boxing, pilates and personal training.
Now, she plans to expand further to open a health hub at Richmond House which will have gym equipment, indoor sessions to target teenagers, a studio open to children, programmes to encourage families to work out together, a wide range of classes, treatment rooms and a nail bar.
There’ll also be gym fitness equipment for people who want to work out on their own.

“It’s time to have my own base. My aim is to make people feel welcome, so the centre doesn’t feel intimidating to come and use.
I really want to offer something different in a very relaxed environment.
“People are a lot more health conscious nowadays and taking working out seriously and releasing the importance of looking after yourself.”
“It’s a massive thing but I’m very excited about it. I’ve just got to wait now to hope planning permission is granted.”
Plans are currently with East Cambs District Councillors who have until January to make a decision on whether to give the scheme the go ahead for the venue which was formerly the offices of Price Bailey.
