Freedom Leisure which operates Uckfield Leisure Centre on behalf of Wealden District Council have invested £170,000 to improve the centre’s gym and fitness studio, making it one of the best in the area!
The gym now has completely new and some of the very latest items of workout kit – meaning that users will experience high-spec cardio and resistance machines, a greatly extended free weights area with new weights, and the latest functional training equipment.
The centre also has two TechnoGym SKILLMILLS™ (a piece of kit famed as being a favourite of celeb personal trainers) making it the only gym in Uckfield to have this state-of-the-art and much sought after machine!
In addition the free weights area has increased in size making it one to rival many other gyms and features Pure Strength resistance kit, yet more state-of-the-art equipment.
Finally in the gym, an open, group exercise area has also been incorporated to allow the offering of in-demand, small group, functional and strength sessions – the very latest in group exercise, which is a very affordable way for residents of Uckfield to train as if with a PT, without the fees.
It’s an exciting addition to what Uckfield Leisure Centre has to offer and another good reason to get out and exercise, as we stress in our new Healthy Wealden Strategy, there are so many real benefits of keeping fit and exercising, whatever your age.”Councillor Claire Dowling, Wealden Cabinet member for Public Health & Community Safety.
The studio space has also been redecorated, and the addition of a new sound system, lighting and new air conditioning system complete its transformation, making it a modern and inviting place to exercise. To complete the studio refurb new group exercise equipment has also been added to further extend the group exercise offerings.
Stuart Crawford, Freedom Leisure Centre Manager says, “We are pleased that this work is now completed and that our investment means that customers have access to a really high standard gym and studio. To be the only gym in the area with certain items of kit is really wonderful!
“It is the aim of Freedom Leisure to support of the objectives we share with our partners and in this instance, we are pleased to support Wealden District Council with the provision of a facility which caters for all fitness abilities, and hopefully acts to encourage more people to the centre to be active.”
