Lockdown personal training company to expand

Date published: 12 July 2022

A personal training business set up during the first lockdown is expanding business.

Life Without Limits was started in 2020 by Jess Pilkington and partner Joshua Smith, started by running outside training sessions and classes before opening premises in Newhey on the Two Bridges estate.

Now with a team of five, joined by Elland Bennett and Nikita O'Reegan, Life Without Limits is expanding to a second gym in Littleborough.

Renovations are currently being carried out ahead of the opening in September.

The Littleborough site will feature weekly classes from early morning, midday, evenings and weekends plus a physio room for an in-house physiotherapist.

Jess said: “With our business and services growing, we were limited to space and with no further way to expand yet in our current location, we decided to franchise out and create a similar centre but on a much bigger scale in my hometown of Littleborough.

“We have a goal of providing a café of hot and cold drinks, fresh and healthy food which will also be available for those passing by. In Littleborough our services will be similar but on a much bigger scale, and we are also looking for two or three level two or three qualified personal to add to our team. Training and qualifications can be provided also in house.”

Life Without Limits offers personal training sessions, weekly classes to internal and external members, bespoke online coaching, training programmes and screened membership.
