The old equipment will be removed on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday 18 and 19 November, leading to two weeks of building work and the installation of the new equipment.
It is anticipated that the refurbishment will take up to three weeks to complete and will reopen on Thursday 7 December.
Classes, the swimming pool and the sports hall will be open as normal at the centre, although the Tone Zone will be closed during this period.
At the same time, the centre’s Group X exercise class studio will be refurbished.
Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said : “I am delighted that we are able to refurbish the Tone Zone at our very popular centre at East Riding Leisure Driffield, and further improve facilities for our customers.”
Senior facility manager at East Riding Leisure Driffield, Darren Jackson, added : “We apologise to our customers for the inconvenience caused by this temporary closure of the Tone Zone, but assure them that they will see the huge benefits of the refurbished Tone Zone and Group X studio when they reopen”.
The new look 48 – station Tone Zone gym will include all of the latest cardio and strength machines, multi functional machines, a free weights area and a TRX wall in the studio.
These include features such as Virtual Active software which allows users to run or cycle through the Rockie Mountains or the French Alps, and connect to the internet to browse social media channels and connect to their fitness app.
The new TRX wall, Matrix C7Xi Climbmills, new flooring and additional consultation area will offer an improved Tone Zone experience for customers.
As well as running instructor-led classes for the popular Les Mills range of classes, East Riding Leisure Driffield will be the first of the council’s centres to run virtual Les Mills workouts. These combine world-leading fitness programmes with pumping sound and motivation from some of the world’s top instructors, all at the customers’ fingertips.
The virtual Les Mills classes will also mean that the site will be able to offer customers more than double the amount of classes they currently provide.
