AN expanding gym is transforming a one-time textile mill.

Historic Greengate Mill in Keighley is undergoing a major rejuvenation.

When NRGym moved into the building seven years ago, the fledgling business occupied just a small part of the four-storey premises.

The only other occupants were a taekwondo school – and pigeons!

Now gym co-owners Nick Hindle and Rousel Chowdhury have bought the Greengate Road mill and the whole place is thriving, with plans for further investment.

In addition to the extensive gym facilities, there is a newly-opened health cafe – Clean Eats Kitchen – which is proving a hit with members and the general public. It is run by Liam Salt and Jean Newnham.

And a cycle repair shop, Bike Nest, operated by Robin Bradbury, is serving the needs of the community as well as cycling professionals – including Jack Carthy, Tom Moses and the Brownlee brothers.

"We now occupy all four floors and are continuing to grow," said Nick.

"We're expanding into the space.

"There's been considerable renovation work to do – we must have filled 100 large skips – and there are more plans to both improve the building and further develop what we offer. We're not happy to stand still.

"We've ordered a lot of new equipment from America, which is being specially made, and we're expanding the changing rooms."

Membership of the gym has grown year-on-year.

And the staff team, including Nick and Rousel, now numbers seven.
