The Saxon Leisure Centre in Biggleswade has received a brand-new state-of-the-art gym facility costing £220,000.
The newly refurbished gym is the latest in a line of redevelopments at the leisure centre, designed to modernise and enhance the community facility and encourage everyone to get active.
Gym users can now benefit from a combination of cutting-edge cardiovascular and resistance equipment along with two new Power Plate machines. The brand-new kit includes several pieces of the latest Technogym equipment including Skillrow, Skillsruns and Skillbikes.
There is also be a full range of free-weights and an online fitness tracking system that helps users achieve sporting, fitness and health goals in a fast, easy and fun way.
In addition, customers are now able to use the new Teambeats set up, which combines variety, efficiency and fun in a single workout that is unlike any other group fitness experience. Teambeat users can make the most of their training by working out on the gym floor in classes or circuits while following their heartrate via an on-screen avatar to achieve the best results.
The gym also has new flooring in the free weights/strength area, as well as an improved layout, providing more space and an improved flow to the workout environment for users.
We've also given the centre a facelift with new, modern, swimming pool changing facilities to make them more family-friendly and give customers more privacy.
The extensive work, costing £1 million, included reconfiguring the changing rooms, so that all of the family cubicles are conveniently next to the learner pool. There are more larger lockers, which are more popular with families and new poolside seating for swimming galas.
The communal male and female showers, which customers said they didn’t like, have been replaced with individual shower cubicles, for greater privacy. The toilets and dressing areas have also been upgraded and the centre now boasts improved accessible changing rooms.
