Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for civic wellbeing and culture, said:

“I am absolutely delighted that the council is able to fund this new gym, which will transform an already very popular facility into a state-of-the-art gym with a great deal more space available, and even more modern equipment. It will help us to deliver our ‘Live Well’ programmes for East Riding residents, and will be a gym that residents can be proud of.

“Our customers highlighted the smallness of the existing gym and the need for more car parking and we are pleased to be responding with these improvements.”

The council is reassuring customers of the Leisure Complex that disruption during the building works will be kept to an absolute minimum and that the Tone Zone fitness suite will not close at any stage. Classes such as pilates and will still be held in the function room, and larger circuit classes will take place in the sports hall.

The new gym, together with the car parking extension and other improvements, represent a £1.2 million investment in further improving and developing Beverley Leisure Centre.
