X FACTOR finalist Stevi Ritchie yesterday reopened the Total Fitness gym after a refurbishment.

The gym, on Liverpool Road, is undergoing an entire refurbishment of its gym equipment this week.

 Singer Stevi, who has recently started training in the gym, popped in for a first look at the new equipment.

Stevi, who shot to fame during last year’s X Factor series and has since become engaged to fellow contestant Chloe-Jasmine Whichello, said: “I am thrilled to be training at Total Fitness in preparation for my tour. 

“It’s an excellent gym with a great team and is now even better with the launch of the new kit.”

Club manager Richard Milne said: “We are really pleased to offer this brand new state of the art equipment to our members.”

The gym will hold its official launch week from August 17 to 23 where non-members can come in for free and experience the new facilities. 

The gym team will be joined by Chester FC on Monday.
