new gym for julie rose well underway

August 25 2021

The exciting NEW Gym and Fitness facility building project is well on its way with a likely completion later this year. Following the opening of The Stour Centre Gym in June this year it is now Julie Rose Stadium's turn to get a fabulous new makeover.

The new gym will occupy the old Colin Jackson suite that was traditionally used for meetings and small group exercise classes but the space is getting a huge facelift with new flooring, redecoration and a whole new look and feel with still those jaw dropping views over the iconic athletics track. The planned opening will be later this autumn.

Julie Rose Stadium has for a long time been the chosen venue for local residents to workout. Now everyone will have a brand new fitness space that they'll be rightly proud of. We look forward to welcoming our existing customers and some new to the Stadium very soon.

The equipment which is due to be installed in October will be provided by world renowned equipment manufacturer Technogym which is the same equipment that has recently been installed at the nearby Stour Centre to some acclaim. There will be all the usual treadmills, rowers and cross training equipment as well as a functional training equipment and a whole selection of free-weights.

The gym will be well staffed by our fitness experts who'll be on hand for helpful hints and tips on how to use the new equipment and get the most out of your workout. Along with the new gym there will be a Group Exercise Studio which will have a full programme of group classes that we know everyone enjoys including our very popular 'Active For Life' sessions.

As an added bonus, visitors to the Stadium will also be able to sample a selection of hot and cold drinks from the new coffee counter that will double as a reception desk so users can relax, socialise and wind down after their visit with friends and family.
