Fitness suite for Middleton Pool
Middleton Pool and Fitness Centre in Newport Pagnell is undergoing a £1 million make over including the addition of a brand new gym.
Work at the centre, which is managed by Places for People Leisure on behalf of Newport Pagnell Town Council, is being carried out by leisure design and build specialist Createability, and will see a 200 sq m fitness suite, complete with Precor CV equipment and Matrix strength kit, built on to the side of the building, along with brand new dry side changing facilities.
A temporary fitness suite, with 30 pieces of gym equipment, has been set up in the Tickford Community Centre nearby and usage is growing daily. Ian Cotgrave, Managing Director of Createability said:
“The new fitness suite will cater for the residents of Newport Pagnell and the surrounding area. With the temporary gym already proving a hit, expectations are promising for the new purpose built facility, which is a very welcome addition for the community, helping to secure the long term future of the leisure centre.”
Remedial work to upgrade the pool, pool hall, plant room and wet side changing will also take place as part of a long term programme to ensure the leisure centre, remains viable.
Work is expected to finish in April and the local community can sign up to the budget gym for just £16.99 per month or buy into a gym and swim all inclusive membership for £22.99.
Simon Churchman, Contracts Manager for Places for People said: “Middleton Pool was built back in 1957 as an open air lido, but a roof was put on in 1989 to ensure the pool was viable 12 months a year. However, people now demand a wider choice for their exercise options and so adding a fitness suite to the offering was a natural progression. Createability’s plans look amazing and we are all really excited to see the finished result.”
