Councillors were updated on plans at the Council meeting on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 where it was detailed that a new area will be created for free weights.
Commenting on the development, Councillor Muir said: “Since taking over responsibility for the Leisure Complex the new operators have identified that the gym isn’t user friendly with the free-weights area located at the entrance to the gym which could reduce participation levels in females and over 60’s. A new area will therefore be created using 60% of the Sports Hall store to provide a new free-weights area accessible from the gym.”
Continuing, Councillor Muir added: “With new equipment to purchased and entire cost of the upgrade borne by the new operators this is excellent news for gym users delivering enhanced facilities and making a visit to the gym to undertake an active lifestyle even more attractive.
“As a regular gym user and road runner I look forward to seeing the benefits and impact of these changes when effected following the tender exercise due to commence shortly”.
