Nairn Leisure Centre visitors can smash their fitness goals following refurbishment and improvements to the gym.
The fitness suite at the Marine Road venue was refurbished following damage caused by a burst water pipe in February.
High Life Highland’s Director of Sport and Leisure Douglas Wilby said: “We’d like to thank Nairn residents for their patience following the damage caused by the flood and fire.
“We’ve been working hard to reopen the gym as soon as possible and have taken the opportunity to carry out some redecoration work.
“Some of our cardio gym equipment was damaged and this has been replaced and I’m glad to say we’re back to having a 29-station fitness suite with state-of-the-art equipment that we know our customers love.
“We look forward to welcoming back old and new gymgoers – and for any new starters, we’ll be very happy to give you a gym induction with one of our friendly instructors to show you how to use the equipment safely and explain its benefits.”
On Thursday (August 26) Mr Wilby was joined by High Life Highland Board Director and Highland Council’s Nairnshire Committee Chair, Cllr Tom Heggie and HLH Non-Executive Director Michael Golding to officially reopen the gym.
Cllr Heggie, Highland Council’s Chair of Nairnshire Committee said: “We were saddened to see the damage caused earlier this year and very grateful to Scottish Fire and Rescue Service who were on the scene within minutes to make the building safe.
“The reinstatement works that have been carried out are fantastic and the centre is looking better than ever for those wanting to hit the gym, go swimming or take an exercise class.”
Nairn Leisure’s gym has 29 cardio stations which includes recumbent and upright bikes, treadmills, cross trainers and rowing machines. There are also resistance machines and weights.
HLH Non-Executive Director Michael Golding said: “Nairn Leisure Centre is a great community facility and I was very impressed with the work that has been done and the range of activities on offer.
“The team at Nairn Leisure Centre have worked tirelessly throughout this time and are now ready to provide local people with a friendly and familiar welcome back to enjoy the new high-spec equipment.”
Nairn Leisure is open Monday to Friday between 7am to noon and 3pm to 8pm; and Saturday 8am until 3.30pm.
