FENLAND District Council's three leisure centres installed more than 100 pieces of state-of-the-art fitness training equipment in May, giving local people the opportunity to work out on some of the most high-tech equipment in Britain.
The new equipment at the Manor Leisure Centre in Whittlesey, the George Campbell Leisure Centre in March, and the Hudson Leisure Centre in Wisbech proved to be a big attraction with keep fit enthusiasts and a big incentive to all those people thought about getting down to the gym, but who kept putting it off.
The equipment, made by leading manufacturer Precor, included their award winning Adaptive Motion Trainers (AMTs). The Manor Leisure Centre now has 50 exercise stations plus a weights area; the George Campbell Leisure Centre has 35 stations, and the Hudson Leisure Centre has 20.
Cllr Steve Garratt, Portfolio Holder for Health and Well-being, said: "The new gyms are fantastic. They have enabled us to improve community health and the popularity of our leisure centres as community hubs.
