New functional training suite at Woodhouse Close Leisure Complex


Our new functional training suite at Woodhouse Close Leisure Complex is now open.

If you're a gym member, please come along and try out our new functional training suite - we'll be on hand to discuss the benefits of functional training with demonstrations of the equipment. 

What is a functional training?

Functional training attempts to adapt or develop exercises which allow you to perform your regular, daily life activities more easily and without injury. It targets your core muscles of the abdomen and lower back.

Come along to one of our free taster sessions, from Thursday 28 February, taking place on weekdays between 9.00am and 9.45am and 5.00pm to 5.45pm. Book your sessions at reception.
