Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre has announced that it has completed its gym refurbishment after investing £500,00 to upgrade its facilities. Everyone Active, which manage the centre in partnership with Stevenage Borough Council, has invested £500,000 into its gym facilities to offer an improved experience for members.
The refurbishments include fresh state-of-the-art fitness equipment, including new bikes in the spin studio, as well as new lighting and flooring for the gym. To support increased demand for strength training for members, brand new equipment has been added such as a hack squat machine and cable crossover.
There is also new cardiovascular (CV) equipment – like treadmills, watt bikes and a skill mill – that will allow members to improve their workout experience. Customers will be encouraged to try the new facilities at Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre’s yearly Health Action Day on Saturday, September 16 from 10am to 2pm.
Activies will also include table tennis, youth tennis, dodge ball, walking tennis and the popular Fitathon to raise money for Dementia charities. Allan Prescott, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: “We’re delighted the gym refurbishment is now complete and invite the local community to come along to our upcoming Health Action Day on Saturday, September 16, to experience our fantastic newly refurbished facilities.

“We’re sure our members will benefit greatly from this investment. Not only will it help to increase our prevalence as a hub for the local community, but also work to support our mission – for everyone to reach their target of 30 minutes of exercise, five times a week.”
Councillor Loraine Rossati, Executive Member for Culture, Leisure and Information Technology at Stevenage Borough Council, said: “Following our new partnership with Everyone Active, the refurbishment of the gym at Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre is the first of many improvements to our leisure services. I am delighted that work to improve our facilities is now complete.
“It is a key part of our commitment to promoting healthy and active lifestyles within the local community. The upgraded facilities will be more accessible and will provide users with an improved gym experience, and hopefully encourage more people to enjoy what’s on offer at the centre.”
