LARKFIELD LEISURE CENTRE STUDIO & GYM DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

 

IMG 5953 copytmactive is investing more than £1m in Larkfield Leisure Centre to meet growing customer demand for group exercise.

Work has now started on the extension to the front of the building which will house two new group exercise studios, complete with sprung floors, LED mixed lighting and inspirational graphics. The studios are scheduled to open in early April 2018 and will allow tmactive to provide a significantly increased and varied group exercise class programme. The ground works have been completed, the steel structure has gone up and exterior brickworking has commenced (as of 22 Jan 2018).

The project will also create the Centre's first dedicated group cycling studio, while the extended gym will feature new top of the range cardiovascular and resistance equipment from Technogym, a functional training rig more than twice the size of the current rig, and an expanded free weights offer. The Technogym equipment will incorporate new Unity screens, providing touch ID, personalisation, exercise programming and customer contact software. This leading equipment is not available anywhere else locally regardless of 20171128 125357 copyprice point.

tmactive is funding the capital works whilst Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council is responsible for more than £200,000 costs on the replacement equipment. tmactive is supplementing this budget by further investment to upgrade to the Unity screens and bring new complementary pieces of equipment such as the Octane Zero Runner and Technogym Skillmill to the gym floor.

"The number of people coming to the Centre for group exercise classes is growing year on year and we are delighted to be able to respond to this demand with some fantastic new studios. The redevelopment will allow us to accommodate even more users from the local community with an even wider range of group exercise classes. The extension to the gym also reflects patterns of use with increased investment in free weights, functional training and digital connectivity to ensure our customers gain maximum benefit from working out at Larkfield," says Martin Guyton, chief executive of tmactive.

The gym extension and Spin Studio are due to be completed in May 2018. The Centre will remain operational during the works.
