New state of the art gyms have been unveiled at two popular Active Leeds Leisure Centres, as part of Leeds City Council’s ambition to get more people moving.
Significant investment has been made into new equipment and wider refurbishments at Pudsey and Garforth Leisure Centres, with just under a million pounds being invested across the two sites to enhance the facilities, including the creation of new virtual spin studios.
The refurbished gyms feature new equipment including dedicated free weights areas, new cardio and resistance equipment as well as the latest technology to help people at all stages of their wellness journey. 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, creating a much brighter and open space.
Councillor Salma Arif, executive member for public health and active lifestyles said:
“I’m delighted that Active Leeds has been able to open these two new gyms in Pudsey and Garforth. This significant investment demonstrates Leeds City Council’s commitment to helping the people of Leeds live healthy and active lives.
“As we’ve seen over the past 2 years, physical activity has been a key point of interest for residents and good health is vitally important to reduce the effects of COVID-19, so hopefully residents can now build on this and continue to exercise in the new gyms.”
