The White Horse Leisure and Tennis Centre celebrated the opening of its brand new Functional Astro-Turf on Saturday.

The new functional astro turf area is approximately 12m x 8m and comes with a lot of new equipment. This includes 15-25kg Atlas Stones, 25kg keg, weighted sled and a 40kg team log (full list of equipment attached). This was a client funded project costing approximately £30,000 of residual capital.

The gym remained open during the works and caused very little disruption during the 3 days of installation. We have also not needed to remove any old equipment, just simply relocated it into other areas of the gym.

Aims

  • To improve on our Instructor-led (Let’s Target) offering
  • To run additional fitness classes
  • Improve fitness offering for customers including a new deadlift area
  • Improve the appearance of the gym
