This company is the largest operator of gyms in the UK, with more than 260 sites. It claims to have more than 1.1 million members. In response to Covid-19 it has temporarily closed all its gyms and suspended membership fees, while launching PureGym Together, which provides home workouts and videos of classes. In 2017, chief executive Humphrey Cobbold, 55, led a buyout backed by American private equity firm Leonard Green & Partners, which valued the Leeds business at more than £600m. Profits reached £68.2m in 2019. In January, it acquired gym operator Fitness World, which has operations across Denmark, Switzerland and Poland.
