Sportswear retailer Sports Direct has revealed plans to open a chain of gyms with memberships as little as £5.

Sports Direct plans "to revolutionise the fitness market by opening 200 gyms that will offer membership starting from just £5 a month".

The retailer, owned by Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley, recently purchased 30 gyms from LA Fitness and has already started renovation work.

The first to open will be in Aintree.

The recession is over. It's time to grow!
