Leisure trust to install Speedflex studio to offer HIIT for all

Everybody Sport & Recreation will transform an underutilised space at a leisure centre into a Speedflex Studio, adding a HIIT element to its community fitness offering.

Due to open in early May, the new suite at Wilmslow Leisure Centre, near Manchester, will include eight Speedflex machines and eight auxiliary stations.

Everybody Sport, a leisure trust which manages 15 leisure facilities on behalf of Cheshire East Council, is introducing the studio as part of plans to provide HIIT to those requiring low impact exercise.

Paul Winrow, the trust’s director of sport and operations, said: “We were really impressed by how inclusive the Speedflex offering is and this style of training will bring something completely new to the local area.”

Speedflex machines generate personalised resistance levels and are designed to deliver the benefits of HIIT without the risk of injury. The machines also reduce post-exercise pain by responding to the user’s force.

“This installation marks the first leisure trust to bring Speedflex on board,” said Paul Ferris, Speedflex CEO.

“We’re confident that other trusts and local authorities will follow to incorporate Speedflex training in their offering.”
