Freedom Leisure sees the opening of two revamped sites

A £3.1m, eight-month redevelopment of the Freedom Leisure-operated Hailsham Leisure Centre in Sussex has now been completed.

The project, funded by Wealden District Council, has seen the opening of two new exercise studios, including an indoor cycling facility fitted with the forward motion video-enabled Myride+ programme.

In another enhancement, the gym has been enlarged and situated on one level and features a large functional training area with Pavigym flooring, Jordan Soft Plyometric Boxes, battling ropes, ViPRs and Kettlebells. Its centrepiece is a Queenax Training System, with other additions to the gym floor including Technogym Kinesis kit and two Power Plate Pro 7 machines, which the centre's fitness team plan on using to enhance GP referral programmes.

In addition to the workout areas, the centre has received brand new changing rooms, a new café area, improvements to the bowling alley and a new American pool table and amusement machines.

Elsewhere in Sussex, Crowborough Leisure Centre - also operated by Freedom Leisure - will hold its official civic opening on 6 December following a £3.2m redevelopment project.

Beyond the installation of a brand new customer service hub, the work saw the pool retiled and gain a redeveloped viewing area and new poolside changing rooms; a new sauna and steam room incorporated into the pool area; and the gym refurbished with additional equipment to include a 20m sprint track and functional and cv kit.

Two new exercise studios have been added so the centre now has four - including one which will be used for new indoor cycling sessions - and, alongside the studios and the gym, the first floor changing rooms have received a revamp and redecoration.

The third largest in the UK, Freedom Leisure is a not-for-profit leisure trust which manages 35 leisure and fitness centres across Sussex, Kent and Surrey.
