Gym-goers in Keighley can now experience walking up the Eiffel tower, jogging through the Alps or taking on the battle ropes as the refurbished Keighley Leisure Centre reopens with new state of the art gym equipment.

The Bradford Council-run facility reopened on Saturday, 6 January 2018.

The complete refit has included new cardio-vascular workout machines which are connected to the internet so members can share their workout on social media, link in with other gym users or watch digital TV on the clear TFT LCD display with touch screen technology.

New resistance and free weights equipment has also been installed as part of the revamp for The Leisure Centre’s facilities.

The gym also includes:

A studio rig equipped with an adjustable pulley, battle ropes, punchbags, chin-up bar, medicine ball rebounder and plyometric step.

The T98e treadmill which can replicate hiking through Alpine mountain scenery, running through canyons or jogging across beaches of white sand.

A StairMaster 8 Gauntlet allows users to climb the steps of famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty or Taj Mahal set their fastest time or aim to reach and hold a specific target heart rate.

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s executive member for environment and sport, said: “By investing in the gym at The Leisure Centre in Keighley, we have secured its future in more ways than one.

“We have a truly state of the art gym with facilities that are attractive to our residents. I would like to encourage people to come and have a look at how good the facilities are.”

The reopening of the gym has been scheduled to coincide with the time of year that most people sign up for gym membership.

A new Club Active Offer gives people the opportunity of attend fitness classes, swimming and use the gym for just £20.00 per month if they sign up before the 31 January.

The gym will also be open earlier for people wanting to workout before work or college. The gym will be open from 6.30am Monday to Friday from 7am on weekends.
