Glasgow Club at Kelvin Hall - one of Scotland’s biggest health and fitness facilities - has opened its doors to customers.

The facility has an eight-court multi-purpose sports hall, a four-court gymnastics hall, three dedicated group fitness studios and one of the largest gyms in Scotland at over 1,000m2 (10,700 sq ft).

There are more than 50 cardiovascular, strength conditioning and fixed resistance stations, including ‘Unity’ screens that supports virtual training and allows users to surf the web. The site includes the largest functional training space in the city and offers more than 100 weekly fitness classes.

G-Cycle enthusiasts can experience the first ever Glasgow Club studio with a video screen wall, which will play during indoor cycling classes.

The venue also has a Skillmill, the latest Technogym equipment that can be used for training power, speed, stamina and agility.

The new health and fitness facilities are part of the first phase of the Kelvin Hall redevelopment, which is a multi-purpose cultural, academic and sporting complex. It officially reopened last week following a £35million refurbishment.

The project is a collaboration between Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life, the University of Glasgow and the National Library of Scotland.

The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon MSP, who reopened the hall, said: “Having seen a variety of uses in its 90-year history, the Kelvin Hall is now home to some of Glasgow’s finest cultural attractions, housing the National Library of Scotland’s Scottish Screen Archive and hosting the hidden treasures of the Hunterian and Glasgow Museums collections. And it’s fitting that following the huge success of Glasgow 2014, one of Scotland’s biggest health and fitness centres in now open at the Kelvin Hall.”

Councillor Frank McAveety, Glasgow City Council leader, said: “Kelvin Hall has been at the heart of Glasgow’s sporting history over the years, and it’s fitting that it now hosts the biggest and best-equipped gym in the city.”
