Dion Dublin, the former Coventry City footballer and TV presenter, has cut the ribbon on the newly-refurbished independent leisure hub Sports ConneXion.

The Coventry-based facility has undergone a £150,000 gym refit carried out by Life Fitness, which saw the installation of a broad range of exercise equipment to be used by members of all abilities.

The refit, which comes after Life Fitness also recently refurbished co-owner Mike Taylor’s Fields Fitness gym in Leicestershire, saw the addition of kit from across the Life range. 32 Life Fitness cardio stations were installed, 11 of which included treadmills, upright bikes and cross trainers from the Elevation Series with Discover SE Tablet Consoles, while the remaining 21 cardio stations belong to the Integrity Series. In addition, more than 20 strength stations were fitted.

The leisure centre, owned by Mike Taylor and Des Slater, was purpose-built in November 1981 and was originally opened by the Duke of Edinburgh. It has continued to expand over the years and the latest installation marks a move by the team to diversify its gym area and equipment.

“We followed a clear vision when upgrading equipment in our gyms and wanted to offer a broad product portfolio to members,” said Mike Taylor, whose son Simon is manager of the gym.

“With over 40 years' experience, Life Fitness’ industry knowledge and trusted equipment was best suited to meet our requirements. Operating clubs that lie in the heart of the community, it was important to create different experiences for a variety of members and I’m extremely happy we’ve been able to achieve this.”
