The latest improvements at Highworth Recreation Centre are underway. Work has started to relocate the gym upstairs in the community room. We are investing in the region of £40,000 in new gym:
Double the size with a dedicated stretch area
45 (it currently has 24!) state of the art workout machines including new: Treadmills, Cross trainers, Upright bike, Recumbent bike
New pieces of equipment: Smiths machine - for those who want to introduce weight training into their programme. Lots of advice and guidance available
New eco cooling system - great for the environment and your workout
The existing gym will be out of action for a few days to allow the move to take place - we will confirm these dates nearer the time. If all goes to plan we hope to unveil the new gym to the local community in November.
Group exercise classes will take place in the sports hall, pool and squash courts. The longer term plan is to convert the space where the gym currently is into a holistic studio delivering pilates, yoga, body balance. It will also serve as a useful community room for meetings and birthday parties. We hope to have this ready early 2019.
Soon you will be able to see the difference in us and feel the difference in you!
