Go! Active leisure facility gets a New Year Upgrade

In 2016, Bolsover District Council’s Go! Active leisure facility in Clowne, Derbyshire benefited from a multi-million pound development, which was delivered by the team at Pulse Fitness in order to provide the local community with a dedicated space for sports and leisure. Now, five years later, the centre has undergone a half a million pound renovation to bring the facilities up to date, ready for the New Year.

Following customer feedback, the end of year makeover has seen the centre receive updates to both the interiors and the leisure facilities. New and advanced gym equipment has been installed from Pulse Fitness’s top of the range Premium Cardio and Strength lines including: curve treadmills, stepmills, air bikes and much more. New flooring throughout with extension to the free weights area and functional training area.

The newly renovated centre, that offers a variety of over 100 group exercise classes each week, will now offer members new facilities including boxing bags and a Stairmaster machine, elevating the leisure facility’s offering for customers.

Within addition to the new and improved interiors and facilities, Go! Active customers will now benefit from the use of TRAKK, the fitness content platform and tracking app from Pulse. The introduction of TRAKK will allow members to create their own workout plans, tap into readymade training plans and allow PTs to digitally connect with members.

With TRAKK, Go Active’s trainers will be able to set personalised plans and programmes for their clients, as well as identify at-risk members and share automated messaged to the member base.

“Over the last five years, Go! Active has gone from strength to strength, continuously reaching financial targets and attracting 1,100 visits per day on average. We’re excited to accelerate success further with improvements and upgrades, ready for the New Year. We hope to reward loyal members with an additional offering in the form of TRAKK, helping them progress with their personal fitness journeys.” says Chris Johnson, Managing Director, Pulse Fitness.

Bolsover District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor David Downes said, “We want to make sure our gym meets the needs of its users and this new investment reflects our commitment to improving health for a wide range of age groups. We hope that the newly refurbished gym will encourage even more people to become active and by doing so improve both their physical and mental health.”

As part of the renewed new 5 year partnership agreement, Pulse will also be supplying a range of support solutions including full time sales support, front of house eXerp membership management software, Direct Debit collections and access control.
