OPERATOR 1610 is to invest over £500,000 in a new health and fitness centre in Chard, which will open in April.
1610 currently manages Cresta Leisure Centre on a shared school site with the Holyrood Academy but growing demand for its services and the limited size of the site has meant new and larger premises are needed to meet demand.
The new site will see the gym double in size and will also include a dedicated spinning studio and interactive Prama studio; the second in Somerset and the biggest in the UK. New changing rooms and a reception are also being installed.
CEO of 1610 Tim Nightingale said: “The new and larger premises means we can expand our services and develop more versatile technology.
“We wish to work with local partners in Chard to develop a town-wide vision for the way sport and fitness is delivered to the local community in the best way possible.
“Membership of Cresta Leisure Centre has tripled in the last five years and demand is still growing so it is important that we meet those future needs with an exciting programme of services and facilities.”
