customer notice

Following last week’s delayed re-opening of the gym at Stokewood, we can confirm that Bournemouth Borough Council’s contractor is continuing to carry out works in that area. The weights section of the gym will be reopening on Friday 23 September at 4pm and the gym is expected to fully reopen with new Life Fitness CV equipment on Wednesday 5 October 2016.

In the meantime the rest of the centre is open as usual and we are putting on additional classes so you can keep up with your activities. Our team are also on hand to advise how you can get a really good workout in the pool. As part of your membership, and on pay as you go, you can also access gyms and go to more than 600 weekly classes at our neighbouring centres; Sir David English, Queen’s Park, Littledown and Pelhams.

We are sorry for any inconvenience and if you have any questions or would like some more ideas about what else you can do, come and have a chat with us.
