Sweat boss Frank Reed, who previously co-founded and ran the Virgin Active chain of health clubs, said: “Gyms are seen by many innovative landlords as employee benefits to attract the best office tenants to premium space with staff welfare considered as a key deliverable.

“We are delighted to be a part of Skypark and look forward to delivering a quality and affordable gym for the tenants of Skypark as well as the local residents of Finnieston.”

Alasdair Roy, a director at Bilfinger GVA – the estates manager for the 560,000sq ft business park – added: “The club is a fantastic addition to our business campus and tenant amenities and to our local community around Skypark.”
