Waterlane Leisure Centre has recently undergone a significant transformation thanks to investment from East Suffolk Council and their Strategic Leisure Development Partner, The Pulse Group.
The upgrade forms part of the Pulse Group’s 20 year partnership with East Suffolk Council as their Strategic Leisure Development Partner.
The partnership has seen them design, build, fund, kit out and provide marketing support to Waterlane Leisure Centre.
Now at the ten year mark, Pulse Fitness has completely modernised the fitness facilities to incorporate the latest training trends as well as giving the facility a £1m aesthetic makeover.
In the gym, Pulse Fitness has worked alongside the council team to carefully select over £400K worth of new equipment.
The facilities now include over 160 stations of the latest cardio, strength, Plate Loaded, free weights and functional equipment from Pulse Fitness.
The team has ensured the space is in line with the very latest training trends and features a number of curved treadmills.
50% of the total space is dedicated to free weights and functional training. New equipment such as dumbbells, benches, half racks, full racks and plate loaded machines featured.
Pulse Fitness has also installed key pieces from its superior H Range Premium Strength Line, incorporating Independent arm weight stack machines as well as dependent machines.
As well as transforming the gym, Waterlane has received a full cosmetic makeover to future proof the site for the next ten years and beyond.
The centre has brand new flooring throughout as well as a new colour scheme and modern lightning to bring the decor up to date. The Pulse Group has also replaced the moveable floor in the popular learner pool.
“We’re really proud of our partnership with East Suffolk Council and Waterlane Leisure Centre,” says Chris Johnson, Managing Director for Pulse Group.
“Having worked with the team over the past ten years we know how much this facility is loved by the local community, so we are delighted to have given the site a complete transformation.
Our market-leading, quality equipment incorporates the very best in British design alongside some of the most innovative and advanced ideas from around the world, so we are confident that we can support the local community in reaching their fitness goals.”
“We are really pleased with the work that has been carried out at Waterlane Leisure Centre, it’s well-used by the local community and subsequently in much need of some TLC”, says Tim Snook at East Suffolk Council.
“This is a major redevelopment in our ongoing Leisure Redevelopment Programme, and the partnership we have established with Pulse over the years and throughout this process has been invaluable.
One of our key priorities is to get more people active, and we hope that the facility will continue to be enjoyed by the local community for years to come.”
The site officially closed on 15th October to facilitate the transformation and has now officially reopened with Everyone Active appointed as the new site operator.
