Fitness room at Neale Wade community College prepares to re-open to visitors

NEW state of the art exercise equipment has been installed in the fitness room at the Neale Wade Community College at March, as it prepares to re-open to the public on Monday.

The school has purchased six resistance pieces of equipment, two rowing machines and an exercise bike, and customers will be able to pay as they go to use the facilities.

Martin Dawson, sports centre manager said: “ It is aimed at being a budget gym facility for the community, without lots of gym instructors, fancy sound systems or televisions everywhere.

“It will be open from 5pm to 9pm Monday to Friday, and from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays. It will be open on a casual basis, where customers are shown how to use the equipment safely, and then pay �3 per session, with no contracts or monthly charges.”

The College’s sports centre was refurbished last summer as part of the Building Schools for the Future programme. That included a relocation of the community reception and office, and opening up the area in front of the reception and sports hall to make a better refreshment and social waiting area.
