"Bounce" has done that very successfully.
I was just reading about that earlier,as pubs,shops,restaurants and cafes went down the takeaway route a lot of gyms and classes have done well,just needed some thinking outside of the box

If my gym told me to carry on with full monthly payments (of £43) for a zoom workout and a "boot" camp 5 miles away I'd tell them to stick it, I imagine other members would follow suit. This isn't the reason DW collapsed.

DW had 73 gyms (which is a high volume compared to other gyms) and 75 stores across the UK. Rent is the biggest overhead for them and challenge during Covid given there was no footfall and income during the lockdown period.

Discovered today DW is being taken over by Mike Ashley’s Frasers Group.

Sad news for the employees there, must have been running on tight margins given the furlough help from govt and not too many overheads with energy bills being down during lockdown etc. I think DW has been in trouble for a while and Covid impact was the final nail in the coffin.
Just when they thought it couldn’t get any worse - Ashley buys them. That’ll be a miserable experience for all
