Transforming Chase Leisure Centre


We Invest, You Achieve.

Get ready to be immersed in fitness. We’re investing £1M in Chase Leisure Centre over the next few months.

We’ll be introducing a new Cycle Studio, new Functional Zone and Virtual Fitness as well as sprucing up the existing gym and Fitness Studio.

What’s happening?

New Cycle Studio

As part of this fitness revamp Chase Leisure Centre will become one of just a handful of places in the UK to offer Les Mills' THE TRIP - A fully immersive workout experience that combines a 40-minute multi-peak cycling workout with a journey through digitally-created worlds.

With its cinema-scale screen and sound system, THE TRIP takes motivation and energy output to the next level, burning serious calories. Watch the video to find out more.

 As well as THE TRIP the cycle studio will host Virtual Les Mills' Sprint and Les Mills RPM programmes.


In the gym, we’ll be replacing the cardiovascular equipment with the latest Technogym kit including the SKILLROW, SKILLBIKE, SKILLRUN, SKILLMILL and Stair Climbers. All of these will be connected to Mywellness – meaning you can track all activities in the gym and outdoors. A new Tanita machine will be installed to bring you fast, accurate body composition results. But that's not all! Work that core on a Kinesis Core Station while the Kinesis Squat/Step is all you'll need for that lower body workout. A brand new Olympic half rack and platform will compliment your fabulous new gym.

The studio will be refurbished and new virtual classes introduced.

Functional Zone

The functional studio will include a fixed functional rig, accessories and cardio equipment to support high intensity small group training.

Classes will include Battle Fit as well as being the new venue for the Les Mills GRIT series

PLUS there’ll be loads of additional kit including new dumbbells, sled and track and SkiErg, for that tough indoor skiing workout you're craving.

When’s it happening?

We’ll keep disruption to a minimum throughout this development by phasing the work.

On Monday 5 November we'll be starting work updating the exercise studio which will re-open, complete with Virtual Fitness on Monday 26 November. Classes will be re-located to the sports hall, Motivate 2 and Profiles 2 during the refurbishment. Advance booking is essential.

Your gym will be closed for 3 days from Wednesday 5 December as part of this refurbishment. The new temporary gym will be available on the site of the former indoor bowling green from Saturday 8 December. We apologise for any inconvenience caused..

Your newly refurbished gym will be ready in mid January.

We’ll then start converting the indoor bowling space into your new Cycle Studio and Functional Zone. There’ll also be a private hire room, which can be used for parties, meetings and other community events.

All new facilities are set to be open to customers at the end of March 2019.
