The Tone Zone gym and cycle studio will be closed from Saturday 6 May. The Tone Zone will reopen on Monday 22 May, when it will incorporate a new TRX wall, which has already proved popular at East Riding Leisure Beverley and Goole.
The TRX Suspension Trainer is a highly portable performance training tool that leverages gravity and the body’s weight to complete hundreds of exercises, and develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability all at the same time.
In addition to the TRX Wall, the new Tone Zone gym will have 50 stations and include a free weights area, the latest cardiovascular equipment, and two multifunctional trainers. The refurbishment includes the latest models of the Matrix 7Xi cardiovascular equipment which have built-in virtual active screens, and will be the first in the East Riding to have internet capability.
On Wednesday 24 May the new cycle studio will reopen and, for the first time in the East Riding, will feature Vismo X technology. This allows instructor-led classes as well as virtual classes, all tailored to individual ability. Participants can monitor their progress away from the centre by creating their own account which can be accessed by smartphone, tablet and desktop.
Darren Jackson, senior facility manager, said :
“This refurbishment is excellent news for our customers here in Pocklington, and means that we will be able to offer state of the art facilities, including technology not available elsewhere in East Riding Leisure.”
During the refurbishment works, all facilities at East Riding Leisure Francis Scaife apart from the Tone Zone gym and cycle studio will remain open as normal. There will also be additional exercise classes including Step (12 May); Body Pump (10 May); CX Worx (11 May); and many more. The bikes will be relocated to the reception studio during the refurbishment works.
In addition, customers at East Riding Leisure Francis Scaife in Pocklington can now (from 25 April) take advantage of a new way of booking their exercise classes and courts online. The mobile-friendly software – also designed for tablets and desktop computers – allows users to log in to East Riding Leisure Francis Scaife either as a member or non-member. Classes can be booked by type, date or activity, and users can see at a glance if particular classes have availability.
The booking system covers all classes at the leisure centre, and members of East Riding Leisure Francis Scaife can book up to eight days ahead (seven days for non-members). Cancellations can be made online, and all bookings made via the app are confirmed via email.
In common with other online purchasing, customers make their purchases via a basket and checkout system. Payments are made securely online.
Working across all devices, the new system means customers get the same experience across all platforms, ranging from an iPhone/Android type smart-phone to tablets such as the iPad, Kindle Fire and Samsung Note, all the way up to a full size desktop PC.
