Wave welcomes Technogym Gym and group training equipment to Eastbourne Sports Park
Wave Leisure Trust, Eastbourne Borough Council and East Sussex College have been working together to bring a new gym and two new studios to Eastbourne Sports Park. Current facilities include the Athletics Track, 3G All Weather Pitch, Grass Pitches, Indoor Tennis and Sports Centre.
The new facilities bring the latest gym and group training equipment, and digital support from sector leading “Technogym,” designed to cater for a range of potential customers from those looking to return to exercise, as well as those who've never been active and want to make positive steps towards a healthier lifestyle.
Eastbourne Sports Park will enable the enthusiast to meet and enhance their physical training requirements, and amateur and professional athletes to prepare for success.
In addition, by working closely with GP surgeries and health service referral teams, it will offer appropriate physical, mental and/or emotional support for those in rehabilitation.
In short, it will be a community resource serving all ages and abilities.
Duncan Kerr, CEO Wave Leisure Trust said “We are delighted to bring these new facilities to Eastbourne Sports Park. By working in partnership with Eastbourne Borough Council and East Sussex College we’re able to bring the latest state of the art gym and group training equipment to the Eastbourne Community.
“We are acutely aware of the physical, mental and emotional health challenges our communities have faced over the past 20 months and as such we want to make this new facility accessible to a broad range of community user.
“We want our customers to feel encouraged to explore traditional and new types of exercise to support active lifestyles which, as we all know is fundamentally key for maintaining healthy communities moving forward. Customers will be encouraged to be curious, to have fun, try new things and in doing so embrace active living.” Duncan said.
Cllr David Tutt, leader of Eastbourne Borough Council, welcomed the new fitness facilities coming to the town. He said:
“The gym and studio space are a welcome new addition to the existing facilities at the Eastbourne Sports Park. Our physical health and mental wellbeing are so important, especially through these challenging Covid times. This is a great new offer to the people of Eastbourne and further afield.”
Rebecca Conroy, CEO at East Sussex College added: “We are thrilled to be working with Wave leisure on this fantastic new facility that will really revolutionise our student’s experiences, career aspirations and work readiness. This partnership is truly unique in that our students will learn within a real working environment, integrated into the Wave Leisure team and one that we are so excited to develop moving forward.
“The next stage of this development is looking at working together to adapt and develop our curriculum to ensure it provides the skills needed for a career in health, sports science and fitness.”
The new gym and group training studios are due to open on 6thNovember 2021.
