IMPULSE Leisure Blackshots has listened to its members’ feedback and given the gym a full refurbishment over the Christmas break, complete with brand new fitness kit. The gym reopened on 5th January 2015 with a full day of free exercise workshops and a special night of upbeat workout tunes courtesy of live DJ ‘Leon C’.
A GYMetrix survey carried out last year revealed members and local people wanted more cable resistance kit, more free weights and the very latest fitness kit in the Blackshots gym. With this in mind, the refurbishment included a new, larger free weights area with more weights, dumbbells and benches, more cable resistance machines and brand new Technogym cardiovascular equipment.
The new Technogym CV equipment includes the company’s ‘unity platform’, which enables users to check social media, browse the web and play games while working out.
The gym also features new energy efficient lighting, a fitness assessment area with a Boditrax K780 Body Composition Analyser – which gives medical grade composition scans and insights – and a complete redecoration of the whole workout area.
Impulse Leisure Blackshots manager, Jack Donovan says: “You don’t get fit by standing still. You need to keep moving, and so do we! Our members told us they wanted more cable machines, free weights and the very latest fitness kit and we listened. The new Blackshots gym boasts state-of-the-art CV machines, more resistance equipment, a bigger area for working out with free weights and a brand new look – the best facilities so our members can achieve the best results.”
