Queries concerning the closure
When will my Pulse 8 membership end?
Pulse 8 memberships will terminate at the end of 2019.
Why is Pulse 8 closing?
The gym market has changed considerably in recent years with the introduction of budget gyms and increased competition. This overcrowded and competitive market place is no longer viable and as a privately owned business we cannot justify further investment without return. Unfortunately, we cannot sustain continual losses and so it is with considerable regret that we have been forced to rethink this aspect of our offering.
Why has the closure been brought forward?
We are sorry that we were not able to give the full 12 months’ notice; the decision to close the Pulse 8 brand has been brought forward in line with our end of year financial review.
If the gym is staying open for Nirvana Members, why can I not continue to use it as a Pulse 8 member?
Pulse 8 is no longer viable and the facility will only remain open until we have a suitable on-site alternative for Nirvana Spa members.
When will the facilities close completely?
The facility will close once we have a suitable alternative on site for Nirvana Spa members.
What is happening to the staff?
Nirvana Spa currently employees 450 people and we are growing as a brand. We are pleased to confirm that there will be no job losses.
What is Nirvana Health?
Nirvana Health is a new venture which will offer unique hydrotherapy rehabilitation facilities including walk in floatation. It is our long term ambition to develop Nirvana Health as an independent offering across multiple sites.
Are you still considering other locations?
We are still investigating other development opportunities but a site has not yet been identified.
