Bannatyne Fitness has invested around £60,000 in potentially life-saving defibrillators for all its health clubs, including Mansfield.
Staff have been trained in the safe use of the machine at the Briar Lane gym if anyone was to suffer a cardiac arrest on site.
Duncan Bannatyne, chairman of Bannatyne Fitness, said: “A considerable amount of time and energy has been spent within the company researching the value of defibrillators and it has been decided that these are a good investment for the health and safety of our members. The defibrillators are easy to use and completely safe.
“We already have trained first aiders and proven and effective first aid procedures in all our health clubs and the new equipment, which comes with comprehensive training, will complement this.
