£150,000 gym refurbishment at Kingfisher Leisure Centre, in Sudbury, aims to improve community’s health and wellbeing

The gym at the Kingfisher Leisure Centre, in Sudbury, has been given a makeover with a huge £150,000 refurbishment.

And now the complex has welcomed 600 members who have been inducted on the new equipment at the facility in the first five days it has been open and are now reaping the benefits of being active.

The centre now boasts a new 40-station state-of-the-art gym including cardiovascular, strength and functional equipment.

It features a zonal approach with the layout providing a clear distinction for different types of training. The functional area provides an area for exercises that focus on improving everyday activities and can be used for core and stretching exercises.

The strength area consists of multi-functional fixed resistance machine, Olympic weights rack, cable machine and free weights. The cardio area is for walking, running, cycling, rowoing and climbing on a range of cardiovascular machines.

The gym also includes the latest innovative training and technology options such as a S-drive treadmill and a climbmill stepper.
