Puma Investments has invested £5m into NRG GYM Limited. NRG opened its first gym in March 2013, after its founder, Shafiq Ahmed, identified room in the market for a millennial focused gym offer providing good value health and fitness through 24 hour operations, coupled with a broad range of equipment and classes.

Puma's investment will enable NRG to continue rolling out its brand, targeting sites in central locations of big towns across the UK.

Welcoming the investment and partnership with Puma, Ahmed said:

“I established this business as I felt the sector lacked a brand that really connected with its members at the ground level and delivered on their needs. This funding will enable us to continue our values and to deliver the model speedily across the country with the backing and support of the Puma Team.”
