Stirchley gym refurbishment completes

Telford & Wrekin Council have completed the latest refurbishment at its aspirations gym at Stirchley Sports and Leisure @Park School. 

The refurbishment includes upgrades to the aspiration’s gym on site installed by Pulse Fitness including 23 cardio stations, complete with treadmills, elliptical cross trainers, step mills. There are also 14 new fixed resistance stations and a smith machine. 

The refurbishment has also been a range of Pulse Fitness “Accessible to All” equipment added to the gym which features swing assisted seats, extensive safety and visibility features and low starting weights to support people with disabilities in a gym environment.

The investment comes as a part of the council’s wider commitment for leisure services which was announced last year to help make the borough cleaner, greener, safer and more enjoyable. 

Councillor Kelly Middleton (Labour), Cabinet Member for Leisure, Public Health and Well-Being, Equalities and Partnerships commented: “In the last 12 months we have made various upgrades to our leisure facilities across the borough including three complete gym refurbishments. 

“We are doing this because as a council that is on the side of our residents, we want to ensure everyone in our borough has access to good quality leisure facilities where they can prioritise their physical and mental wellbeing. I am delighted that the new equipment installed will offer residents with additional needs a space where they can keep fit and active.

“The new upgraded gym space will also feature as a huge part of PE lessons for our young people at Telford Park School providing students with a fantastic introduction to health and fitness.”  

Billy Goodall, School Business Manager told us: “The investment in the gym at Stirchley Recreation Centre @ The Park School will not only benefit our local community, but it will have a hugely beneficial impact on the facilities available to all of our pupils. This will not only enhance the physical education curriculum on offer but will also provide enhanced opportunities to improve physical and mental wellbeing for all. Real consideration has been made by Telford & Wrekin Council when selecting the gym equipment, with a real drive on inclusivity – this will ensure that there is a diverse range of equipment for everyone.”
