IT’S good news for gym bunnies in Warwick district as a whopping £400,000 revamp to the facilities at two leisure centres is nearing completion.
Users of Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre in Leamington and St Nicholas Park Leisure Centre in Warwick are set to see a number of improvements to their gym facilities over the next few weeks.
The centres, managed by Everyone Active in partnership with Warwick District Council (WDC), have invested £400,000, to provide a better experience for their members, they say.
The refurbishments include the addition of nearly 80 brand new, state-of-the-art pieces of strength and CV equipment, across both sites. These range from treadmills, to cross trainers and Olympic power racks, alongside the introduction of new equipment members wouldn’t have previously had before.
Newbold Comyn, completed on Wednesday (June 29), will also benefit from a larger free weights area, to cater for the increase in demand from the local community, alongside new flooring and artwork.
While St Nicholas Park, due to be completed on Saturday July 9, will benefit from new flooring and artwork.
Gareth Wagg, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: “Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre and St Nicholas Park Leisure Centre remain an integral part of the community and we’re excited to build on this by improving our current gym offering.
“We’re sure that our members will benefit greatly from this investment. Not only will it help to increase our prevalence as a hub for the local community, but also work to support our mission – for everybody to reach their target of 30 minutes’ exercise, five times a week.”
And Coun Moira-Ann Grainger, WDC’s spokesperson for neighbourhood and leisure added: “We are very pleased to see the continued investment in our leisure centres by Everyone Active. This ensures that local residents have access to the latest equipment to improve their health, strength and wellbeing at an affordable price right on their doorstep.”
