Sports & Fitness Centre - Fitness Suite Improvements

Published on


Please be aware of the following improvements set to take place within the Sports & Fitness Centre:



In order to improve Fitness Suite access and space within the foyer, the access control turnstiles will be relocated to the base of the ramp within the fitness suite. This work will start on Monday 19th August with an expected completion of works by Sunday 1st September. The Fitness Suite will remain open during this two-week period, however access to the Fitness Suite will be maintained via an alternative route, which will be sign-posted:


•From the ground reception foyer, take the lift or proceed up the stairwell leading to the 1st floor Sports Café

•Turn left continuing along past The Hall of Fame and through the facing double doors and along the mini-corridor

•Turn right through the next set of double doors, turning right and down the stairwell

•At the bottom of the stairwell, turn right again to enter the Fitness Suite


The normal access route is expected to be in place for members on Monday 2nd September.


New Gym Equipment

On Thursday 29th August the Gym 80 Fixed Resistance equipment will be removed from site to make way for some fantastic new additions; fifteen brand new pieces of Cybex fixed resistance machines from their Eagle Premiere and VR3 ranges will be installed on Tuesday 10th September.

This major investment also includes an increase in the number of free-weights designed to complement the new Cybex resistance equipment that together will provide the opportunity for more comprehensive workouts. 

From Monday 2nd until Sunday 8th September the floor surface within the free-weights area is being replaced with a thicker rubberised harder wearing material, which will not only look better but also extend the size of the free-weights training area. This will however lead to temporary unavailability of the free-weights, with the exception of the Power Racks and Bravo equipment.

We really do appreciate your patience at this time and we are confident that these improvements and new equipment will improve your overall experience of the Sports & Fitness Centre. If you have any questions or comments, please approach any of our staff for assistance or ask for the Centre Manager, Chris Rogers. Chris can also be contacted at or via reception on 0151 794 3307.
