The team at Bolsover District Council’s Go! Active leisure facility began working with Pulse Fitness in 2016, as part of an ongoing five-year renewal partnership.

Over the last six years, the community-focused centre has received two full-scale renovations to provide local residents with a dedicated space for sports and leisure.

Designing the fitness suite
The council selected Pulse as a forward-thinking partner who could achieve its vision of creating a local authority facility with a private-club feel and delivering engaging facilities with a focus on the local community.

Pulse was able to deliver this and much more. In January 2017, the centre was re-opened with a brand new 100-station gym featuring Pulse Fitness’ market-leading equipment, a 25m swimming pool, a new thermal suite complete with steamroom, sauna, ice fountain and rain shower, changing facilities and café.

A trusted supplier
As a result of Pulse’s attention to detail, high-quality production and overall delivery of the initial project, Bolsover District Council called on the company again in 2021 to oversee a £500k overhaul, to bring the centre’s facilities up to date.

In response to customer feedback, the end-of-year makeover saw the centre receive updates to both the interiors and the leisure facilities. New and advanced gym equipment was installed from Pulse Fitness’s top-of-the-range Premium Cardio and Strength lines, including: Curve Treadmills, Stepmills and Air Bikes, among other items. New flooring throughout, and extensions to the free weights area and functional training area completed the project.

The newly-renovated centre offers over 100 group exercise classes a week, alongside new activities in the shape of boxing bags and a Stairmaster machine.

In addition to the new and improved interiors and facilities, the latest renovation also introduced Go! Active customers to Trakk, the fitness content platform and tracking app from Pulse. Now members can create their own workout plan and tap into readymade training plans.

Trakk also allows members to engage with PTs, so trainers can set personalised plans and programmes for their clients, identify at-risk members and share automated messages with the member base.

“We’re delighted to showcase what can be achieved within a strong working partnership,” says Chris Johnson, MD of Pulse Fitness. “Over the last six years, Go! Active has gone from strength to strength, continuously reaching financial targets. The latest renovation has accelerated success combined with the introduction of Trakk to help members progress”.

"We’re delighted to showcase what can be achieved within a strong working partnership such the one we have with Go! Active," – Chris Johnson, MD, Pulse Fitness
