A council has nearly doubled its fitness class timetable at two of the borough’s leisure centres following an upgrade in new technology that will allow customers to choose from hundreds of different virtual classes on demand.
Gedling Borough Council has fitted New WEXER TV screens and high definition projectors at Carlton Forum and Redhill leisure centre so fitness fans can do anything from group cycling to Pilates at a time that suits them. Customers will have more freedom and choice over what exercises they want to do and will no longer have to worry about classes being cancelled last minute.
Gedling Borough Council say the upgrade will save money by reducing down time, increasing the use of fitness studios and provide better value for money for customers.
Leader of the Council Cllr John Clarke said: “I’m really impressed with the new technology, it’s easy to use and there’s something here for everyone. We’re constantly working to upgrade and improve our centers to offer as much to customers as possible.”
The virtual sessions offers hundreds of classes at a touch of a button, including traditional classes from Aerobics, Yoga and Group Cycling to surf board work out or a contemporary dance class. Customers can also tailor the class to the length and intensity that suits them allowing customers to do a quick warm up before hitting the gym or ten minutes cool down after a workout session.
