A NEW fitness centre is 'coming soon' to Wrexham's Eagles Meadow Shopping Centre.

A UK-based fitness chain 'Foundry Gym' has announced plans on Facebook to open a branch in Wrexham over the upcoming months.

There is already speculation as to which unit the gym will occupy as the shopping centre was in advanced discussions with a prominent leisure recreation tenant to occupy the top floor of the former Debenhams store in November 2023.

Established in 2013, the 24-hour gym currently has several branches across the UK and is described as the 'best place to boost strength, cardio and confidence'. 

The Leader:

It is also set to open branches in Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Leicester, Derby, Kent, Blackpool, Nottingham and Coventry. 

The announcement was shared on Facebook and stated the business would be coming very soon to an undisclosed unit in Wrexham Eagles Meadow Shopping Centre.


Residents are thrilled with the announcement of multiple businesses opening in the complex, including new unique cafe's 'Retrograde' and 'Cwtch Pottery' which opened earlier this month.

Sarah Atherton, MP for Wrexham, said: "It is exciting to see several new businesses popping up in and around Wrexham, including at the Eagles Meadow site, which is an attractive venue.

"Having lost a local gym recently and our city desiring fitness and wellness options, the Foundry Gym couldn’t have come at a better time. I wish the Foundry Gym all the best on this exciting journey."

An opening date for the gym and exact location are yet to be confirmed.

Foundry Gym and Eagles Meadow have been approached for comment.
