A new CrossFit gym could open on the Isle of Wight, in a former MOT and garage workshop.

Where cars were fine-tuned, so might your muscles in new plans lodged by CrossFit IOW.

A former motors workshop in College Close, Sandown, could be the latest home for the CrossFit team.

As part of the plans, two full-time and six part-time jobs could be created.

In a planning statement submitted to the Isle of Wight Council, the CrossFit team has said they would host small group training sessions as well as look to get corporate businesses in for health and wellbeing days.

It said it wants "to provide inclusive opportunities to work out and for people to have fun in the process, building up community and have people belong to something great that is going to benefit them, mentally and physically. "

The CrossFit gym would not be a "come and go" facility but one where you train with a member of staff.

It said it "strives to create an ambience as opposed to a loud or noisy gym, due to the nature of our training method being respectful and educational, not about all guns blazing."

The gym could be open from 6am and hold one-hour classes all through the day.

CrossFit IOW said it also planned to extend more specialist services to Island sports teams.

The main part of the existing workshop could be converted into the main gym and exercise area, with an office, changing rooms, showers, lockers and equipment stores to be accommodated in the existing office and sales space.

Planning agent, Andrew White, on behalf of CrossFit IOW said the plans would bring a currently unused building back into use and improve its neglected appearance.

Only internal works are being proposed, the agent said, with no change to the outside.

The agent also said it would provide a valuable community facility within easy reach for local residents.

You can view the application, 24/00079/FUL, on the Isle of Wight Council's planning register. Comments can be submitted until February 16.
