A new state-of-the-art gym has been unveiled at Pudsey Leisure Centre following an investment of more than £230,000.
Leeds City Council say significant investment has been made into new equipment and wider refurbishments at both Pudsey and Garforth leisure centres, in a bid to encourage people to be more active following the Coronavirus pandemic.
Just under a million pounds being invested across the two sites to enhance the facilities, including the creation of new virtual spin studios.
The work at Pudsey includes:
- Creating a much brighter, open space
- New flooring
- New lighting
- Decorations and branding
- £149,000 invested in the latest free weights, cardio, and resistance equipment
The new gym features the latest technology to help people at all stages of their wellness journey. The investment replaces equipment which was more than 10 years old.
Along with new equipment the refurbishments have created a brand-new experience for leisure centre users with money invested in new lighting, flooring and decoration and creating a much brighter and open space.
A council report said:
“The gym equipment will give greater opportunity to engage more people to increase their activity levels to lead happy, active and healthy lifestyles, improving the health of people in the catchment around Pudsey Leisure Centre as part of the recovery from the pandemic.“
