Good things come to those who weight

Now twice the size, Inverness Leisure will be unveiling its new upgraded gym this week.

High Life Highland has overseen the upgrade which provides the latest Technogym equipment and more areas for gym goers to enjoy a complete body workout.

Alongside the newly extended strength and conditioning room, Inverness Leisure can now accommodate 150 gym-goers at any one time.

Inverness Area Leisure Manager Kevin Thomson said: “We can’t wait to welcome people back to the newly refurbished gym with the latest state-of-the-art equipment providing on-demand workouts at the touch of a button.

“We’ve also got the Love to Train room focusing on functional fitness where, using wearable technology, you will be able to follow and monitor your workout progress within our new Love to Train classes.

“We’ll also have designated areas for stretching and toning as well as the latest rowers, bikes, steppers and new treadmills which replicate outdoor running.

The previous equipment has been replaced by the market leader in gym gear, Technogym, official supplier for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Through the Technogym app, customers will be able to view their workout and body stats, helping to chart progress and it will be compatible with most brands of wearable technology.

Other changes include:

  • cardiovascular machines increasing from 41 to 63
  • resistance equipment stations increasing from 14 to 24
  • dumbbell provision up to 50kg
  • increase in weightlifting racks

“The strength and conditioning room has also been expanded and now has eight double racks, which means we can have up to 16 people using our fantastic BLK BOX racks at the same time.”

Use of the new gym will be included in the cost of the current highlife Membership – £21.70 for an individual or £32.60 for a family.

Membership also allows you access to the leisure waters, competition pool, climbing wall, running track as well as swimming lessons and 125 group exercise classes each week.
