A NEW gym and changing facilities will be introduced at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre as part of a multi million pound refurbishment.
The facility, operated by Sheffield City Trust, will be kitted out with the latest fitness equipment, featuring technology such as Technogym’s Wellness System and MyWellness Cloud.
The free weights area will also be expanded and there will be a large multi-functional zone in the gym’s centre designed to make the space more flexible.
Team, competition pool, and members’ changing areas will be re-fitted with new showers and lockers and the latter will also have a spa with sauna and steam room.
Other developments include a revamp of the swimming and gym reception and a change of access points to improve security.
Chief executive of SCT Steve Brailey said: “The refurbishment at Ponds Forge will provide modern state-of-the-art fitness equipment for all our customers and will also improve the changing areas for pool users.
“All this will contribute to our ongoing goal to improve the health and wellbeing of Sheffield by creating top-of-the-range venues where local people can go to exercise and improve their fitness.”
All refurbishment work is expected to be completed by the end of October.
