Lammas Leisure Centre's new fitness suite

New gym opens at Lammas Leisure Centre

Lammas Leisure Centre in Sutton has opened the doors on its brand new fitness suite.

Ashfield District Council, in partnership with Everyone Active, has invested almost £2million to transform the centre this year, now boasting a state-of-the-art fitness suite that can rival any other in the region.

The new gym was formally opened by Leader of the Council Cllr Jason Zadrozny. He was joined by Theresa Hodgkinson, Chief Executive of the Council and Lorenzo Clark, Everyone Active Contract Manager.

Capacity of the suite has increased by 59%, with 146 stations compared to the previous 92. New facilities include a large free weight area, functional rig and 15 metre track and sled, as well as all new cardio equipment.

Work has also started this week on the centre’s new TAGactive and soft play area, which will be opened in approximately 12 weeks’ time.

Cllr Jason Zadrozny said: “We’re proud to be putting our money where our mouth is when it comes to leisure here in Ashfield and this is proof of just that. I’m incredibly proud to welcome a gym of this calibre to Sutton.

“This gym, along with all the other improvements here at Lammas, are just part of a huge programme of transformation works in Ashfield. Hucknall has seen its own new gym, studios and reception area, and Kirkby is set to open an all-new centre next Spring.

“Together we have invested over £22.5million into our leisure centres throughout the District because the health and wellbeing of residents is a key priority for the Council.”

Lorenzo Clark, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We are so proud and excited to open this gym and to give the community access to such a brilliant facility.

“This fitness suite is a huge upgrade and caters for everyone’s exercise needs, no matter what your age, ability or interests. The kit is brand new and top of the range and we are confident our customers are going to love using it.

“Coupled with the start of work on the TAGactive Arena and soft play, the upcoming opening of a new spin studio and other ongoing developments, these are exciting times at Lammas.”
