Major improvements to customer facilities have been made to three leisure centres as part of a £725,000 investment.

Ken Martin Leisure Centre is the final site to undergo improvements with an extended gym area. In March, Victoria Leisure Centre was the first to introduce a new fitness studio. Southglade Leisure Centre was the second site to be completed and now fully operates a new health suite which includes an eight-seat sauna and steam room, a double foot spa and a monsoon shower. 

The gym area at Ken Martin has expanded by 30% and customers will see ten new pieces of equipment including Kinesis and a larger free weights area. The new gym will open to customers on 27th May.    

Southglade Leisure Centre health suite is the first to have monsoon showers and foot spas with heated seating. In addition, there is an eight-seat sauna and steam room with a relaxation area. The new health suite also includes mood lighting and direct access to the pool. The fitness studio at Victoria Leisure Centre was the first City Council leisure centre to include TRX suspension training, which allows customers to perform hundreds of exercises using their bodyweight against gravity. 

Cllr Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Nottingham City Council, said: “This is an exciting development for Ken Martin Leisure Centre, providing customers with some fantastic new state-of-the-art gym equipment and an expanded gym space. All of the developments have been based on consultations with current customers and responds to their feedback.”

Rob Sharman, Framework Manager for G F Tomlinson, the main contractor for all three schemes, said: “It gives us great pleasure to be handing over the final one of three projects on the council’s ‘Spend to Grow’ scheme.  These improved leisure facilities will make a significant difference to the health and well-being of the local residents in Nottingham.

“We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to continue our excellent and long standing relationship with Nottingham City Council through the successful delivery of these important schemes.”

Nottingham City Council leisure centres offer various memberships that cater to all age groups. Having invested in these developments, customers will have a wider range of facilities to choose from as part of their membership.
