There are a lot of big changes happening to the Trust this month, including the introduction of Pioneer gym in Bacup and the partnership between the Trust and Community Leisure Association of Whitworth. Read more about the latest news in this months newsletter:
As some of you may already know, Marl Pits has been undergoing an extension to have a new rig installed. Good news: it’s open!
With the gym being so successful and the number of members ever-growing, we needed to refurbish the centre to fulfil the gyms need and make space for new training facilities. This new space holds a more functional weight training area as well as the gym rig structure.
This rig consists of a total of 8 workout stations including punch bags and weightlifting areas, meaning all you gym-goers to focus on strength and functional training.
The new gym rig frame has been made by Exigo, a Rochdale based fitness brand who design and manufacture innovative gym equipment and accessories. Kaycliffe Ltd carried out the building work. This company is based in Bury and specialise in commercial buildings.
It’s a top-class training facility to go alongside our original gym set-up to offer all of our members the best possible workout experience we can. We have also added brand new Gym Gear equipment including kettle bells and medicine balls.
Come along to Marl Pits and try it out!
