Half-a-million fitness boost for Rugeley Leisure Centre

Rugeley Leisure Centre is set for refurbishment work to begin early November. The £500,000 investment will see a full gym transformation with state-of-the-art equipment installed.

The development comes just a few months after Chase Leisure Centre’s redevelopment and will feature a whole host of brand-new Technogym kit including the SKILLROW, SKILLBIKE, SKILLRUN, SKILLMILL and Stair Climbers.

A new Tanita machine will also installed to bring members fast, accurate body composition results.

Pete Burt, Managing Director of Inspiring healthy lifestyles - who manage the centre on behalf of the council - said: “We are always looking to develop our leisure centres and provide the best equipment for our local communities.

“This latest development sees first-class leisure and fitness facilities for Rugeley Leisure Centre and furthers our ambitions to serve our customers, and create leisure environments that help them live happy and healthy lives.”

Cllr Christine Mitchell, Portfolio Leader for Culture and Sport said: “We are excited to develop another state-of-the-art facility here in Cannock, following the completion of Chase Leisure Centre’s development. It is wonderful to be able to deliver further innovative, creative fitness and wellbeing technologies to all corners of our district.”

The investment comes from Inspiring healthy lifestyles and is set to be completed in January. In the meantime a temporary gym will be set up in the Sports Hall to minimize disruption.
