I welcome plans to upgrade the gym at Queen’s Leisure Complex, Holywood. Councillors were updated on plans at the Council meeting on Tuesday 5 February 2013 where it was detailed that a new area will be created for free weights.
Since taking over responsibility for the Leisure Complex the new operators have identified that the gym isn’t user friendly with the free-weights area located at the entrance to the gym which could reduce participation levels in females and over 60’s. A new area will therefore be created using 60% of the Sports Hall store to provide a new free-weights area accessible from the gym.
With new equipment to purchased and entire cost of the upgrade borne by the new operators this is excellent news for gym users delivering enhanced facilities and making a visit to the gym to undertake an active lifestyle even more attractive.
As a regular gym user and road runner I look forward to seeing the benefits and impact of these changes when effected following the tender exercise due to commence shortly.
