Day of free fitness fun gets Stowmarket active
People in Stowmarket have been given a helping hand to achieve their New Year’s fitness goals thanks to a local leisure provider.
Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre, which is managed by Everyone Active, opened its doors for a day of free fitness fun on Saturday 14 January to showcase its newly refurbished gym.
Customers were given the chance to try out the new, state-of-the-art cardio vascular equipment, which has been installed as part of a £100,000 upgrade, as well as take part in free gym inductions and group exercise classes.
The open day came after colleagues from the centre joined members of Mid Suffolk District Council to officially unveil the refurbished fitness suit on Friday 13 January. Guests were given a tour of the centre and even got to try out the new equipment for themselves.
Everyone Active’s general manager, Anselm Gurney, said: “Together with the Council, we aim to encouraging more people in the community to lead healthy, active lifestyles. We can achieve this by ensuring they have access to top-class facilities at the centre and enjoy every visit they make to us.”
“I was delighted by how many people attended the open day and we hope they have been inspired to continue getting active throughout the year. We look forward to helping them on their fitness journeys.”
The upgrade was funded by Mid Suffolk District Council as part of its partnership with Everyone Active, which also sees the latter manage Stradbroke Swimming Pool and Fitness Centre.
Cllr Flatman’s, Portfolio Holder - Community Capacity Building & Engagement, said:
“I am delighted to unveil these fantastic new fitness facilities and given people a chance to try them out for free.
“Encouraging our residents to live healthier lifestyles is one of our key priorities, which is why we made the decision to invest £100,000 in refurbishing the fitness suite. We hope those who already use Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre and potential new customers enjoy getting active with the new state-of-the-art equipment.”
