Gym operator Train Urban has launched its first Manchester operation in the basement of our iconic Hilton House building.
Train Urban has leased the entire basement, comprising a floor area of some 4,100 sq. ft. Owned and managed by the coaches themselves, the gym will retain an overarching focus on the development of personal well-being, as well as health and fitness. Personal training and classes will be delivered by highly experienced and qualified coaches using the best kit available.
Andrew Ball, Train Urban Co-owner and Personal trainer explained: “We have been looking for the ideal location within Manchester for some time and considered a number of options, however, our wider vision, combined with practical needs, recognised Hilton House as the perfect fit.
“The building has been brilliantly reimagined yet retains much of its original, striking aesthetic and design. The location is ideal and the basement has direct public access with the ability to develop our own layout and create individual areas for specific needs.
“We officially opened in July and will be offering some limited pay as you go slots, or the option to join our eight week challenge. The challenge has been running for nearly three years now during which time it has grown into a welcoming fitness community, producing some amazing results along the way. Pre covid, we had begun to organise regular charity hikes and socials which we’ll begin to pick up again as restrictions ease.”
Train Urban is undoubtedly a great addition to Hilton House and there is a strong shared ethos and positive synergy with our wider tenants, including health and wellbeing café and bar operator Feel Good Club.
At Hilton House, our intention was to create large spaces that could be utilised for a range of purposes and to marry corporate office space together with services that support the building and local neighbourhood – places to spend time and socialise.
We’ve been shortlisted in the Insider Liverpool City Region Property Awards 2021, in the Property Deal of the Year Category, for our acquisition of Elevator Studios.
