Released on 19 December 2019 Archived Press Release

Works to extend the gym at Shipston Leisure Centre have been completed following a £30k upgrade.

Everyone Active, who manage the centre, in partnership with Stratford District Council has removed two rooms which were situated at the back of the gym to increase the variety of fitness equipment available for customers.

The new equipment includes:

  • Kettle bells
  • Slam balls
  • Extra Olympic bar
  • TRX (Total Body Resistance Exercise)
  • Battle ropes

Commenting on the extension, Alex Fuoco-Lang, Contract Manager at Everyone Active, said: "We are thrilled to open the upgraded gym at Shipston Leisure Centre. We wanted to make better use of the space within the gym and improve it for our customers.

"The new equipment diversifies the ways our customers can work out and offers them the opportunity to refresh their fitness regimes, regardless of their abilities."

Cllr Sarah Whalley-Hoggins, Community Portfolio at Stratford-on-Avon District Council, said: "I am delighted to see this much needed extension to the gym.  The facility attracts a wide range of users from aged 11 upwards. This extension provides additional equipment and space so that even more people can enjoy the health benefits of the gym. 

"The gym extension has been carefully thought out and I feel sure that the residents of Shipston-on-Stour and the surrounding areas will make the most of this local facility."

The project has been funded through Section 106 monies received from the CALA Homes development at the former IMI Norgren Site, Campden Road, Shipston-on-Stour.
