Concerns have been raised over the long-term mental health impact on customers of a gym closing in Clydebank.

We previously reported that PF Gym, based at 195 Dumbarton Road, will shut its doors for the final time on Sunday, April 28.

The fitness centre opened 10 years ago but has faced regular problems with flooding.

And Gary Robb, whose wife Noreen owns the business, explained why they have no option but to shut the gym.

He said: "We have had problems constantly such as being flooded with sewage water.

"The landlord and I have tried to fix things on a number of occasions. We discovered it is actually a problem out on Dumbarton Road.

"It has flooded my class area and ruined the flooring.

"We moved in here 10 years ago and have put a lot of work in to get the place right, it cost a lot of money and having to close the gym has caused lots of problems such as clients leaving and members leaving while also going to other gyms.

"We cannot afford to stay open as we have used up all our cash resources."

The gym attracts people from all different age groups.

And Gary was keen to highlight the important role the facility provides plays in the community.

"We pride ourselves as a family-run gym in Clydebank, of which there are not many in the area," the 47-year-old continued.

"We view ourselves as a community. People come in just to talk to us and not even train sometimes.

"The support from the people who have stuck by us has been phenomenal, including Kirsty Mackenzie who deals with our social media, but unfortunately the business can't keep going.

"It is going to be a very sad day when we close as it will affect so many people.

"We have people from aged 18 up until 65. Some come for fitness, some come for health reasons but most attend to help their mental health.

"Near enough everyone who trains at the gym has been in crying.".

Gary hopes that the PF Gym will be able to reopen elsewhere in Clydebank but admits things remain uncertain.

"At the minute I think everyone would love if we could relocate and find somewhere else but we have used up all our resources," he added.

"We are going to have to sit back and see how things shake out in terms of getting new premises because it is not just a matter of moving in.

"You have to do a number of things such as strengthening floors and making sure there are shower facilities available."
