The Bannatyne Group has invested £500,000 (US$624,900, €588,800) into improving equipment and facilities at its Carlisle health club.

Interactive cardiovascular and resistance equipment and an expanded free weights section have been installed on the gym floor. Other new equipment includes Watt Bikes, Water Rowers, Technogym spin bikes, Skillmill and Les Mills smart bars for Body Pump classes and functional training.

The group has also invested in a new functional area, which includes a Technogym Omnia 8. The rig covers all aspects of training including strength, endurance, stability, flexibility, coordination and speed.

The refurbishment is part of the group’s ongoing investment in all its health clubs.

Daniel Gray, general manager at Bannatyne Health Club Carlisle, said: “The company has developed and improved the gym floor and installed state-of-the-art new equipment. Further to this the range of functional training equipment available to our members has been designed around our B:Functional classes, which are very popular with members of all ages.

“Functional training is the way the industry is progressing and focuses on training movement patterns rather than isolating individual muscle groups. The new equipment provides fantastic fat burning workouts and will improve strength, endurance and boost metabolism.”

Alongside the gym, the club offers a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and spa pool. In addition, the club offers more than 100 classes each week, including virtual sessions with both scheduled and ‘on-demand’ slots available to suit members.
