Back to the business of fitness at Cotswold Leisure Centre

Cotswold Leisure Cirencester opened its doors over the weekend as people of all ages flooded back.

Closed since July last year after the floods, the centre opened with a fun filled weekend of activities that included go karts, bouncy castles, roller skating and multi-sports coaching for the children, to a rowing challenge in the gym, and several fitness classes - including a new Body Training System class - for the adults.

Over 1,000 people took a swim, dozens of faces were painted and close to 200 new members signed up for the Gym, Swim and Fitness class package.

Demonstrations in Tai Kwon Do, judo and figure skating on roller skates took place with a chance for newcomers to have a go.

Leisure Centre Manager Andrea North said: “It’s great to be open again. So many people have worked so many hours to get the centre open again as quickly as possible so it was great to mark the end of that work with a celebration. The weekend was a great success. Saturday was our busiest day since the new centre opened in 2006.

Andrea and her team have used this new start to breathe new life into the centres programme of activities. The most dramatic change is the introduction of the new Body Training Systems fitness classes. The Body Pump class claims to be the most successful group fitness programme in history!

In addition to the classes, new equipment has been added to the already impressive Fitness Suite. The latest technology in the form of “Power Plates” offers members a new way of working out.

The swimming lesson programme has also changed with instructors now following the ASA’s National Swimming Teaching Plan. New disciplines such as diving and synchronised swimming are also available and the pool will be open earlier from 6.30am for earlier starters.

For the less active, the centre now also features a free wireless internet link in the Real:Life café area. A range of new treatments are also available through the Holmes Beauty treatment rooms.

Business Development Manager for Leisure, Simon Dicker said:  “We’ve kept a lot of what we did well but we’ve worked hard to improve our service offer in many areas.

“The new equipment in the gym, along with the new fitness class programme, we feel makes our membership the best value for money in the area.  With no contracts to tie you in for a long period, we’re offering people the chance to try us out.  We’re confident they’ll want to stay!”
