The gym at AquaZone is in the midst of its biggest upgrade since the facility opened more than 15 years ago.

The existing treadmills, cross trainers, bikes and recumbent cycles were all replaced today with brand-new equipment from leading fitness manufacturer, TechnoGym.

Two “SkillMills”, which are versatile variations of a traditional treadmill, have also been added.

As part of the upgrade, the gymnasium space has been renovated, removing an office and creating more open floor space.

AquaZone Manager Ray Smith thanked members for their patience during the now complete renovations.

“As we say here all the time, sometimes you have to go through short-term pain to achieve a long-term gain, and what a significant gain this is,” he said.

“We now have more space in the gym as well as more equipment than ever before.

“AquaZone gym members now have access to some of the most modern and intuitive exercise equipment available.

“TechnoGym has been the official supplier of exercise equipment for the past five summer Olympics, so many of the machines we have at AquaZone are the same as or similar to those used by Olympic athletes.”

Mr Smith said that all of the new equipment can be linked to smartphone apps so users could follow their progress over time.

“Being able to track your workouts is becoming more and more popular,” he said.

“The ability to chart each step on your way to your fitness goals is a great way to stay motivated.”

A brand-new fleet of spin bikes was unveiled in January while the space currently occupied by the crèche is now a dual-purpose area.

The crèche will continue to run from 9am – 11am on weekdays, with a fully-equipped boxing studio to operate at other times.

Later this year the centre also plans to upgrade the strength equipment with a new functional training rig, lifting platforms, Olympic lifting weights, dumbbells, bars and other accessories.

Finally, a group fitness studio upgrade is earmarked for late 2017.
