One of the largest wellness and fitness facilities in the UK, the 1,550 sq m Warwick Wellness Hub, which opened recently, features a 230-station gym from Technogym and a 12-court sports hall. The building also has pools, indoor climbing walls, studio spaces and outdoor sports pitches.

The £49m project, the launch of which ties in with Coventry’s tenure as the 2019 European City of Sport, is part of the university’s push to become the “most physically active campus community in the UK by 2020”, according to Lisa Dodd-Mayne, director for sport and active community.

Nick Mennell from Willmott Dixon, which built the hub said: “Warwick’s gym is the biggest in the higher education sector. It enables people to be active in a way that works for them.

“Local communities can come together and share these spaces, getting active side-by-side and providing immense inspiration to one another,” he explained.

The sprawling facility opened on 15 April ahead of the Europe Corporate Games, which will take place in Coventry in August 2019.

Additionally, the development will include the creation of an urban orchard and new pedestrian routes in the nearby Ravelin Park.

The building will feature photovoltaic panels and a green roof and is on target to be the first of its type in the UK to be rated outstanding by BREEAM.

A wellbeing-focused Human Performance Lab and Strength and Conditioning Room has opened at Lancaster University after an eight-month refurbishment.

According to the university, the 400 sq m extension, which was first announced last year, will stimulate healthier living by encouraging members of the public and athletes to take a “positive mental attitude towards strength training”.

The extension has created more space to meet the increasing demand for sports facilities on campus and will temporarily accommodate the Human Performance Lab to support research and learning around a newly-introduced Sports Sciences degree.

The Human Performance Lab will move to a new Health Innovation Campus when it opens in 2020.

The space features power racks and Olympic lifting platforms and cardio equipment including Wattbikes and kit from Technogym’s Skill range, including Skill Bike, Skill Run, Skill Row and Skill Mill.

"This new facility will benefit our competitive athletes and teams, individuals and local/regional teams and organisations" - Kim Montgomery, Lancaster University

“We’re so excited to be adding this great new facility to the Sport Lancaster portfolio,” remarked Kim Montgomery, the school’s head of sport.

She continued: “This will benefit our competitive athletes and teams and individuals, as well as local and regional teams and organisations.”

The space will also be used by staff and the people living in the wider community, promoting health and wellbeing and encouraging more people to get active.

The lab will move to a new Health Innovation Campus in 2020
