Fire Exit Doors 

During Covid restrictions we removed the alarms for the fire exit doors to make it safer for everyone to avoid unnecessary contact with others whilst walking through the building. We have kept this in place ever since. However, this has had an impact on how we operate our centres and has made it difficult for our staff to operate effectively. Therefore, we will be arming all fire exit doors with an alarm again from Monday 23rd May. Please make sure you use the main entrance and exit to enter and leave the building.

The Fort

THE FORT IS NOW OPEN!

Waterside Farm Leisure Centre is the home of The Fort that is an extension to our original Fitness Suite by extending our current free weights area and introducing a state of the art functional zone.

The area incorporates a mixture of strength and functional equipment including multiple rigs and a high tech track down the middle. The rigs will include several squat racks, peg walls, landmines, pull up bars, rope climbs, boxing zones, Olympic ring stations and a 13 metre sled track all providing the perfect workout 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.

The Fort isn’t the only addition with an extension of the current free weights area with the installation of our new beast rack with lifting platforms and 5 new Hammer Strength plate loaded resistance machines and a new HD Elite cable machine to make the perfect zone no matter your training goal!
