we are pleased to announce our gym and studio extension project commences on monday 17 july

Freedom Leisure and Crawley Borough Council are pleased to announce our gym and studio extension project begins on Monday 17 July.

Crawley Borough Council will be investing £900,000 that will see an extension to the existing gym, through into the bar area. We will also be extending Studio 3 as well as introducing a state of the art 30 bike spin studio with virtual myride classes.

Studio 3 will increase in size from 100m2 to 140m2 with the removal of the existing studio 2 and studio 3 storage areas to allow us to increase class capacity.

The gym will increase in size as it moves into the bar area with an additional 90m2 of workout space. The functional workout area will be extended and we will be replacing all the existing resistance equipment. The CV equipment displaced by the increased functional area will move into the extended area where the bar would have been.

Our new spin studio will be 79m2 with 30 spin bikes and introducing additional virtual classes to the programme. All existing instructor led classes will remain as normal.

The old spin studio wall will be removed and this space will be converted into a matted stretch area.
