A NUMBER of jobs have been lost at the Studio Worx gym on Longwood Road after the business was forced to close this week.

The popular fitness studio, which only opened at Abbey Trading Estate several months ago, is the latest local business to fall victim to the tough economic climate.

A statement was posted on the gym’s Facebook page late on Monday night (June 25) informing members that the business has been forced to shut.

“We’re so sorry to inform you that Studio Worx has been forced into administration due to constraints beyond our control. We’re all devastated and we want to let you know that we have really appreciated all your loyalty and support. If anyone is due a refund for the last few days of the month, we will be in touch as soon as possible,” the statement said.
