New State Of The Art Fitness Suite Extension Called The Fort Opens at Waterside Farm Leisure Centres

The Fort

Waterside Farm Leisure Centre has extended the Fitness Suite by over 50% to include a state of the art functional zone called the Fort and extended the free weights area.

The functional zone area incorporates a mixture of strength and functional equipment including multiple rigs and a high tech track down the middle. The rigs include several squat racks, peg walls, landmines, pull up bars, rope climbs, boxing zone, Olympic ring stations and a 13 metre sled track all providing the perfect area for your own workouts and our newly designed Fort group exercise classes. All rigs have been designed and made by BeaverFit using top grade British made steel for top quality performance.

The Fort functional area isn’t the only addition with the extended free weights area including a brand new Beast Rack with lifting platforms and 5 new Hammer Strength Plate Loaded Resistance Machines, plus a new HD Elite Cable Machine to make a world class training zone you can use no matter your training goal.

The area will soon include brand new Group Exercise Classes called Fort Strong, Fort Fit & Fort Strike. Fort Strong will be to improve your maximal strength, whilst Fort Fit will be to improve every aspect of your fitness for a more well rounded fitness regime. Fort Strike will be for those of you who love boxing with a circuit style boxing class.

Cllr Beverley Egan, Cabinet Member for Environment and Leisure Services said “The brand new Fort area at Waterside Farm Leisure Centre is second to none. The area has been so well designed using the best quality materials to make this gym one of the very best in the industry. The workout possibilities are endless so no matter the training goal of our wonderful customers there is something here for everyone. After the continued investment and awards won over the past couple of years by Castle Point Leisure, it is clear to see why they are considered one of the best centres in the country.”
