Top Track 250

With more than 260 sites across the country, PureGym is the UK’s largest gym chain, offering low-cost membership and 24/7 access. In response to the pandemic it temporarily closed all its gyms and suspended membership fees, while offering more than 120 free virtual workouts via its app. Profits reached £68.5m on sales of £254.9m in 2019 under chief executive Humphrey Cobbold, 55. In January, it acquired gym operator Fitness World, which has operations across Denmark, Switzerland and Poland.
