FITNESS enthusiasts in Wisbech have been quick to take advantage of the impressive new gym that has just been opened at the Hudson leisure centre.
The new, air-conditioned room contains more than 40 pieces of state-of-the-art equipment. It is the latest move in the continuing upgrading of the centre.
Other improvements include a new "spinning" room, featuring 22 bikes, and the relocation of the crèche to enable customers to leaver their children safely on site while they are busy doing other things.
Councillor Steve Garratt, portfolio holder with responsibility for health and young people, took the opportunity to test some of the equipment when he formally opened the new gym last week.
He was also one of the first to make use of the new automatic access reception that makes it easier and quicker for regular customers to gain entrance to the centre.
He said: "All these innovations underline our determination to make the Hudson a really first-class leisure centre for the people of Wisbech. Having had a go on the new gym equipment myself, I'm convinced that it will make a real difference to anyone who wants to get fit and stay healthy."
A special "refer a friend" promotion is continuing at Fenland's three leisure centres until the end of July. Current members can refer a friend and once the friend has signed up for a six-month membership the current member gets a month's use of the centre free.
