Dundee is set to become the first city in Scotland to host a 24/7 private exercise pod, thanks to fitness startup TinyGyms.

This innovative launch will take place later this year, marking a significant milestone in the fitness industry in Scotland.

TinyGyms secured funding for this project as one of the thirty-five businesses awarded a share of the £1.5m prize at the prestigious Scottish EDGE awards in Edinburgh on Friday night.

Out of over 200 applicants, Dundee-based TinyGyms emerged as a winner in the Wild Card EDGE category for early-stage businesses.

TinyGyms founder, Mike Forbes, expressed his excitement about winning the funding for the new project:

“When you see the quality of previous winners – and the people in the room on Friday – winning the Scottish EDGE award feels like a real honour, and a nice bit of encouragement that we’re hopefully on the right track. It will be a big boost for getting our first site up and running, and help us bring something totally new to Dundee for all the people who don’t feel like busy public gyms are for them.”

Scottish EDGE, Scotland’s largest business funding competition, provides grants and loans ranging from £10,000 to £100,000 to support high-growth potential startups and social enterprises.

Since its inception in 2013, Scottish EDGE has awarded over £26m to 636 businesses, resulting in the creation of 3,879 jobs and an additional £708m in revenue for the Scottish economy.
