PLANS for a new gym in Rosyth have been withdrawn.

NitraFit, which was set up last year, offers boot camps to clients as well as workshops and seminars on mental health.

Up to now, members have been training outdoors at Pitreavie playing fields but owners Chris Irvine and Josh McGonigal submitted plans for a gym building at an industrial unit on Barham Road, part of Rosyth Europarc, in October.

However, those have now been withdrawn due to problems with parking.

Despite the knockback, NitraFit told the Press they were still looking at other sites for the business.

Josh said: "The council rejected our plans as they didn’t believe we had a solid plan for parking.

"We got in touch with local businesses who were more than happy to help, however, this didn’t seem to be enough.

"We had the option to resubmit but we believed that the outcome would be no different so we moved on.

"We still have huge plans for 2020 nonetheless and we believe we’re going to make a much more noticeable and positive impact on the community in months to come."

NitraFit say they are close to securing a property close to Pitreavie but "nothing is set in stone".

Chris and Josh were both still working at PureGym when they started the boot camps.

Along with providing fitness classes, they want to help people work on the important factors that make them happy and confident in their own skin.

They do this with regular one-to-one meetings with members and daily messages in WhatsApp groups and workshops so they can stay motivated year-round and make lifelong friends.
