New Haverhill fitness centre and gym, Ignyt Fitness, set to open





The founders of a new Haverhill gym and fitness centre say they are committed to helping clients get results.

Ignyt Fitness is the creation of Tahnee Perfect and Lewis Jones, partners in life and in business, who are combining their passion for personal training to bring a service to Haverhill they feel is not already available.

Their ethos is based on helping people to achieve their fitness goals in an affordable way, based on science and either in small group or one-to-one sessions.

Lewis, 28, has worked as a personal trainer (PT) and strength and conditioning coach at the University of Cambridge Sports Centre for seven years (Tahnee also worked there as a PT for one year).

He has worked with top level athletes, including 800 metre runner Louise Shanahan, a former European youth champion who also competed at that distance in the 2020 Olympic Games and Louis Rolf, who won bronze in the individual pursuit 3,000m in the C2 class and gold in the 750m team sprint C1-C5 at the 2016 Rio Paralympics.

Having fulfilled a long-held dream of opening his own fitness business, Lewis said: “We are completely results driven. We went to give you the best results possible. It is based on science-based methods. We are going to make sure it’s tried and tested.”

A key consideration for Lewis, of Steeple Bumpstead, and Tahnee, 25, from Haverhill, is the cost to clients.

Tahnee, a former student at Samuel Ward Academy, said: “We want to create a small group environment. We don’t want to be about commercial gain - we want to be almost a small community where people progress together and learn together.”

Lewis added: “Our main selling point is small group personal training. It is cost effective and it’s affordable. A one-to-one PT can be up to £40 a session, whereas a small group session it can be less than £20.”

The couple have top-end fitness equipment from the likes of Wolverson, Assault Fitness, Concept, Strength Shop and Mirafit and use Hyrox style training methods.

Ignyt will officially open on April 29 at Unit 14 Spring Rise, (next to Haverhill Electrical Supplies), in Falconer Road.

Before that, it will hold an open day on April 27, from 10am-2pm.

Ignyt will be open from 6am-8.30pm, Monday to Friday and 6.30am-11am on Saturday. More details at www.ignytfitness.com

Anyone can sign up on a free one-week trial , which gives access to two small group training sessions and one class.
