Fusion Lifestyle invests £2m in fitness upgrades

Eight leisure centres operated by Fusion Lifestyle are receiving upgrades to their fitness provision during the month of December, as part of a £2m investment programme.

Each of the eight facilities will benefit from new fitness equipment provided by Life Fitness, including new cv machines, fixed weight resistance machines, free weights and new functional training equipment.

The works are part of a push to upgrade and get the centres ready ahead of an expected influx of new members in early January.

The investments form part of Fusion's larger investment strategy across its facility portfolio.

The operator is currently working on a £5.9m redevelopment at Ivybridge Leisure Centre in Devon, where works include the installation of a new six-lane pool with a retractable glass roof.

On the other side of the country, In Newcastle, a £7.5m restoration of Newcastle City Baths is due for completion in January 2020. The Turkish baths and one of the original pools are being fully restored, alongside the build of two group exercise studios, a new gym and new changing facilities.

The eight centres to share the £2m funding are:

Albany Leisure Centre – £340k invested in a new gym Forest Hill Pools & Fitness – £290k invested in a new gym

Edmonton Leisure Centre – £30k invested in new indoor bikesPark Road Pools & Fitness – £60k invested in new free weight equipment

Glass Mill Leisure Centre - £400k invested in a new gym Wavelengths Leisure Centre - £260k invested in a new gym

New Chiswick Pool - £240k invested in a new gym Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre - £400k invested in a new gym

Established in 2000, Fusion Lifestyle currently operates more than 90 sport and leisure facilities across the UK which attracted more than 20 million visits during 2018.
