Building on our manifesto commitments, Huntingdonshire District Council's Conservative administration has ensured work is now completed on upgrades across the District at One Leisure centres.
An investment of more than half a million pounds allowed for the Impression Fitness Suites to be updated with brand new equipment in St Neots, St Ives and Ramsey.
The refurbishment included new cardiovascular and resistance machines and flooring across the three sites, with customer usage and feedback utilised to determine other changes. Increased free weights areas with additional place-loaded equipment, new rigs with increased functionality and specialised equipment including, ClimbMills, Curved treadmills, Airbikes and Ski-Erg.
St Ives reopened it's doors on Sunday 8th December after it was the last centre to have its gym equipment refurbished and upgraded.
Councillor John Palmer, Executive Councillor for Leisure and Health, said: “We are really proud to finish this refurbishment across the remaining One Leisure sites, after the Huntingdon facility was the first to be completed in 2018. We are committed to constant improvement in our One Leisure facilities and an upgrade in the equipment and gym areas was the next step in continuing to provide an excellent fitness and wellbeing offer for the residents of our District.
“Regular upgrades of fitness equipment are standard practice across the sector and as the primary provider of multi-purpose leisure facilities in the District, it is vital that we are at the forefront of tackling wellbeing and health-related issues amongst our residents.
