“The new equipment, redecoration and carpeting highlight our commitment to provide high-quality sports and leisure facilities that meet the aspirations of local communities and encourage residents to be more active, more often, supporting the Government Change 4 Life agenda and the council’s responsibility for public health.”
The new Tone Zone will include treadmills, cross trainers, cycles and weight training equipment as well as new free weights, benches and stretching area.
The new equipment will also include integrated televisions, which will give a wide choice in channels, are iPod compatible and have their own personal fans.
