The gym at Exmouth Leisure Centre is set to become an exercise space fit for the 21st century.

Building work at the gym will see it more than double in size, forming the key feature of a £2million redevelopment programme.

Now, operator LED, working in partnership with East Devon District Council, has revealed more details of the new gym, due to open in May.

Olympic gym supplier Technogym is providing more than 60 new workout stations, including an ‘Omnia’ station which can be used by individuals and groups, and for which the gym team will run daily workout sessions. Display consoles on treadmills and bikes will have upgrades, including social media and web browsing, along with Freeview television and music playlists.

Fitness team leader Simon Minting said: “The mix of equipment in the new gym really has something for everyone, whether they like to ride a bike while watching Bargain Hunt or lift weights using the Olympic rack. Although there will be several new pieces of equipment, they are all very user-friendly and the gym team will be on hand to make sure everyone gets the most from their workout and reaches their fitness goal.”

The first phase of the development will also include a new studio which will host many of the 85 weekly group exercise classes the centre offers.

To mark the new gym opening, the centre is running a promotion for new members in April, where the first 50 people to take out an unlimited membership will pay no joining fee.
