The fantastic refurbishment here at Burntwood Leisure Centre includes an upgrade to the current gym facilities, a new freedom cafe plus, a brand new aerobics studio and a new indoor cycling studio. In addition, the current steam room and sauna will be replaced. Freedom Leisure is making an investment in excess of £1.1 million in partnership with Lichfield District Council, to support the local community to be more active, more often.
The first area to be opened was the revamped reception and Freedom Cafe which was opened early November. This will help create a social and welcoming atmosphere in the reception area and the freedom cafe serving Costa coffee and delicious snacks for you to enjoy before and after working out, while the layout also makes it easier and quicker for visitors to check in and move through the centre.
As part of the gym enhancements a functional training area has been installed. Functonal training helps to improve your core strength and overall conditioning, training the body for the activities performed in daily life, in addition new state-of-the-art TechnoGym equipment will be installed throughout the new gym area.
Since February 2018, behind the scenes, contractors have put in place a number of energy saving measures which will see the site reduce C02 by 392 tonnes a year.
The refurbishment project will be complete by the end of December and launched at an open day on Saturday 19 January, where there will be tours of the centre, free access to the gym, 30 minute taster classes and special offers on fitness memberships throughout the day. On the day everyone will be able to swim for just £1.
