First gym equipment has arrived

There have been some delays, but finally we have the opening of Otterburn Gym in our sights. The first items of equipment arrived yesterday and we are nearly ready to open the doors. All being well, the gym will be open in the first week of February, and we have agreed a membership cost of £15 per month or if paid in advance £150 annually.

Cross trainer and rowing machine are still waiting delivery, but I'm sure you will agree that the Gym is starting to look good.




Construction work has started

Work on the new gym started on Monday 13 October.

Two changing rooms at the east end of the building are being remodelled to form the space to accommodate the new gym, and the first task was to remove the internal walls separating the changing rooms and showers to create an open space ahead of fitting out

Internal walls removed, a good sized space for gym equipment is starting to emerge

Internal walls removed, a good sized space for gym equipment is starting to emerge

We are hopeful that construction work will be complete inside 3 weeks, once that has happened the empty gym can be fitted with equipment and opened. Once we have a firm opening date monthly and annual gym memberships will be available.
