Withdean Sports Complex, Prince Regent Swimming Complex and King Alfred Leisure Centre all have gyms, and while they are all currently very well-equipped and staffed by expert fitness instructors, Freedom Leisure vows to make them state-of-the art, by featuring some of the best and newest kit in the area.

All three gyms will receive new cardiovascular Technogym kit, the majority with integrated touch screen digital TV consoles and new pre-programmed workouts, designed to be challenging and deliver results in a fun and easy way.

Withdean, the largest of the three gym sites, will also feature the new SKILLMILL™ by Technogym, the first product allowing both everyday gym-goers and athletes to improve power, speed, stamina and agility. Users can enjoy the benefits of professional sports training in a safe, engaging and effective way, as the unique solution offers a huge variety of workout routines to train the whole body – and turn everyday gym members into peak performers!

The new gym layout at Prince Regent Swimming Complex has been especially planned with accessibility in mind, with certain pieces of the new equipment being IFI accredited, which means the kit is designed and adapted for both disabled and non-disabled users, allowing them to benefit from a full body cardiovascular and resistance based workout.

We are pleased to be able to install this brand new gym equipment into these popular gyms on behalf of Brighton & Hove City Council. These centres are wonderful community facilities and they continue to provide the very best in health, fitness and wellbeing for the people of Brighton and Hove and the surrounding areas.
