Lifestyle Active gym opens at Verwood Hub


A new state-of-the-art Lifestyle Active gym at Verwood Hub has been officially opened by the Chairman of East Dorset District Council, Cllr Malcolm Birr.

Also in attendance at the opening were Mike Fry, chairman of Verwood Arts & Leisure Amenities, who manage the facility, Cllr Peter Richardson, Mayor of Verwood and the Paralympian cyclist, Darren Kenny.

The gym is one of three facilities in Verwood which have come about following the sale of Verwood Leisure Centre to Morrisons Supermarkets for an enlarged store in the town. The other facilities are the all-weather sports pitch at Potterne Park opened at the beginning of this year and a new sports centre at Emmanuel School to be used by both the school and members of the public which will be open in September.

The 50-station air-conditioned gym is equipped with the latest Technogym range of weight, treadmills, rowers and cross trainers.

The gym is open from 7am to 10pm Monday to Friday and from 8.30am to 6.30pm at weekends.
