Gym Gear is proud to have been the chosen supplier for gym equipment and gym flooring for Dimensions Leisure Centre part of Stoke-on-Trent City Council. As part of the refurbishment process, the decision was taken to increase the size of the gym by converting the underutilised sports hall into a state of the art fitness suite.
Dimensions leisure centre has always been a popular location for exercise in the local community, but the old gym was at full capacity and a larger gym was required to increase capacity and satisfy demand. Moving the fitness suite to the converted sports hall has more than doubled the size of the gym which has increased capacity and allowed for a much more diverse range of equipment to accommodate popular modern training methods including HIIT and functional training.
Gym Design and Planning
A number of 3D visuals were created based on the dimensions of the sports hall. With the new state of the art gym gear entertainment series cardio equipment requiring both internet connectivity and TV, it was essential the positioning of the was precise for the electrical contractor. With our 3D gym design software, we were able to measure the exact location of the equipment. The HIIT zone and functional zone were positioned together to facilitate both individual and group training sessions.
A diverse range of equipment has been installed catering for cardio, HIIT, functional, and strength training. In the functional and free weights areas 30mm premium, gym floor tiles were installed to protect the subfloor from falling weights whilst creating an aesthetically appealing environment to train in. A blue sledge track with markings has been fitted alongside the functional and free weights area for both endurance and strength and conditioning training with a prowler.
The old cardio equipment has been replaced with state of the art gym gear entertainment series with connectivity to fitness apps, asset management, internet and TV. A mixture of Elite Series selectorised and Sterling Series plate loaded strength machines were fitted to provide multiple options for strength training, and different levels of fitness and ability, catering for the novice trainer through to the more advanced trainers.
The transformation has been dramatic, not only has the fitness suite at Dimensions Leisure centre more than doubled in size, members can now enjoy connectivity to fitness apps to measure and record their activity, alongside a more diverse range of equipment that broadens the range of exercises and training methods available. Dimensions Leisure Centre is now a modern well-equipped gym able to rival any other gym in the area.
