The new owner of Norwich's Virgin Active health club has announced plans to rename and refurbish the facility.
David Lloyd Leisure is to invest more than £500,000 on refurbishing the existing building, located on Drayton Road.
The company said all 100 members of staff will remain at the club, which will be renamed David Lloyd Norwich.
The refurbished facilities will include a wide range of children's clubs and activities, and the health club will remain open as the work gets underway.
Glenn Earlam, David Lloyd Clubs' chief executive, said: 'We have ambitious plans which we believe will make it one of the city's leading health and racquets clubs.
