About Us

Fitness Factory is a gym built with love, passion and positivity…and it’s infectious!!

Anisha Karolia is a passionate and inspirational entrepreneur. She began her fitness career as a Les Mills instructor at a commercial gym and then went on to teaching classes in the local community. With classes beginning to burst at the seams, Anisha was inspired to offer more for her women and went into setting up a women only gym where her passion for training grew, and her business has evolved in line with this.

Anisha introduced new equipment making weight training more accessible to the women she was already working with. Breaking the usual stereotypes of women, Anisha’s approach is to lead by example and as a result, she’s an inspiration to many of her members.

Through seeing the transformation in the women that were coming to her gym, Anisha created Fitness Factory Leicester, a facility more accessible to both men and women in the local community.

“Members get the personal support they need to focus on their fitness goals, and when they see the physical transformation in themselves it gives them a sense of achievement. I love that I can help people in this way.”

Fitness Factory has a broad and diverse membership base where everyone is welcome. After a devastating fire and the COVID pandemic in 2020, Anisha relocated to an even bigger premises that still suited the local community whilst offering more space to uphold the ethos of ‘something for everyone’. Anisha took on a huge renovation project whilst in lockdown and with her members in mind, she has created a fitness facility that offers more than any other privately owned gym in Leicester.
