Essential Maintenance & Refurbishment work

Latest update on the refurbishment project - Dated 18 September 2014

New Weights Room

The relocated Weights Room, on the ground floor of the building, is now in full use and feedback on the new equipment is very positive. The new staircase linking The Gym to the Weights Room is nearly ready for opening, which will enable easier access from the gym floor. New signage has been ordered and we still have a few finishing touches but we are really pleased with how it is all looking. Users are reminded to put away weights after use and keep the room clear and safe for fellow users.

New Spin Studio

The new Spin Studio is now located upstairs within the main gym area. It is not only used for classes but can also be accessed any time the gym is open, to complement your workout. When attending spin classes please use the door at the top of the back staircase.

  • New lighting enhances the ambience of the class and can be adjusted to a variety of different sequences
  • A new projector and DVD player will allow you to spin round the Alps!
  • A water cooler is available in the room for your convenience
  • Window frosting has been ordered and will be fitted to decorate the large windows and offer a degree of privacy
  • A new air conditioning unit has been installed and air extractor units will also be fitted
  • ...and finally the delivery date for the brand new spin bikes is Friday 26 September

Studios

Studio 1 is now our main aerobic studio. The majority of the group fitness programme will take place in this room. There is a new water cooler in the corridor for your convenience and seating will be installed to use whilst you wait for your class or your children whilst they are attending their club sessions.

New dimmer switches for the lights are due to be fitted within the next week to aid the relaxation and set the mood in our mind body classes.

The Gym

Brand new Life Fitness equipment has now been installed in our gym which is looking fantastic. For the majority of our customers, the transition to the new equipment has gone really well. If however, any of you are uncertain about using the new equipment or LF Connect (Smartphone technology) for your programmes and workouts, please talk to one of the Fitness Instructors. Alternatively, you can book onto a free mini induction for an introduction to the new equipment.

There are still minor works ongoing in the gym area including the installation of new air handling units; this is expected to be completed shortly.

Poolside

Work is ongoing within this area and we will give a further update next week.

Wet Changing village

The wet change has been painted throughout and is looking very smart. New hairdryers have been installed and additional benches have been added to the accessible toilets, this will increase changing areas and ease congestion at busy times. The toilets and shower areas are going through a programme of deep cleaning. Plus, we have also scheduled a minor refurbishment to Reflections, our sauna and steam area prior to the pool re-opening.

Please check back regularly to read the latest updates on the Applemore project and if you have any feedback on the refurbishment works, please do not hesitate to contact us: Email: leisure@nfdc.gov.uk

We are also busy planning a big opening event so watch this space for more details.

Thank you for your patience and we hope we will see you at the centre in the very near future.
