David Lloyd Leisure (DLL), the Europe’s leading health, fitness and racquets group announced today it is to open its second club in Brussels next year, at Sterrebeek, east of the city.
David Lloyd Sterrebeek will be DLL’s third club in Belgium creating more than 60 new local jobs and offering state-of-the-art fitness, racquets and health facilities for all the family.
David Lloyd Leisure currently operates 130 clubs in total, of which 101 are in the UK, and is rapidly growing across mainland Europe where it now operates 29 clubs across eight countries.
It already operates two clubs in Belgium; at David Lloyd Uccle in south Brussels and David Lloyd Antwerp. DLL continues to look for further expansion opportunities in Belgium as well as across Europe, including acquisitions and new build sites.
The new club at Sterrebeek will offer premium health and fitness facilities for all the family. The centrepiece of the club will be the 100+ station gym, which will house David Lloyd Clubs’ cutting-edge gym concept with an unrivalled array of best-in-class equipment. There will be three group exercise studios; a hi-tech indoor cycling studio, and high impact and a Mind & Body studio.
A 20m indoor and a 25m outdoor heated swimming pool will offer a range of activities including aqua aerobics, family swim times and quiet adult swim sessions. The new club will also feature three outdoor padel courts plus four tennis courts.
Family sits right at the heart of David Lloyd Clubs and in addition to the structured, progressive swim and tennis coaching, children can take part in the club’s after-school and holiday clubs offering fun and active childcare solutions for parents out of school hours. Sessions will take place in a dedicated DL Kids zone, and will be synchronised with the adult group exercise programme giving parents and guardians a break.
Finally, other facilities will include a luxury indoor spa which will include a Himalayan salt sauna, experience shower, hydrotherapy pool, heated beds and a deep relax room creating a sanctuary of relaxation to recharge, revive and rejuvenate.
There is also a Clubroom cafébar with a family zone and indoor soft play area for the younger ones; and an adults-only area and business hub. An outdoor patio area will offer a space for outdoor dining and drinking on warmer days and evenings.
Stephane Rutte, Regional Manager for Belgium for David Lloyd Leisure said; “Since the pandemic, the nation has prioritised its health and well-being and we have seen a surge in demand for our premium, family-focused health and fitness facilities. We are delighted to be opening our third club in Belgium and look forward to welcoming our new members next year.”
