Modernised facilities are better for everyone’s health in Deepings

Since the transformed Gym at Deepings opened in 2015, the Centre has seen an influx of customers as it continues to be a massive hit with the local community. Thanks to the investment into the gym the Centre has been able to expand, attracting a broader range of users.

Deepings customers say “The new gym is amazing. It is a great space, the area feels like a really good place to workout”. There is an “excellent choice of equipment” which includes cardio, resistance and fixed weight machines, as well as the new functional training equipment featuring medicine balls, kettlebells and stability balls supplied by Life Fitness.

Many customers are having tours and signing up on the spot, which have seen memberships increase by 30% in 8 months. Due to popular demand the number of group exercise classes have also increased and Pilates has been added to the timetable. 

It is not just the gym and classes that are benefiting from the transformed facilities. The Centre’s swim school figures have reached a record high with now more than 1000 children attending lessons.

For those people who are less regular exercisers, a new health and wellbeing programme that includes weekly walks and a GP Referral Scheme has been set-up to help people improve general health.  Each week between 8-10 people gather together for the walks and enjoy a coffee afterwards.

Kadee Chester, General Manager at Deepings Leisure Centre said “We are perfectly positioned at the heart of the community, helping residents achieve their exercise goals. Whether residents are regular visitors to the Centre or new starters to exercise everyone who visits Deeping is living a healthier lifestyle.”

Cllr Ashley Baxter, South Kesteven District Councillor for Market and West Deeping, regularly uses the facilities with his family. “I am delighted with the transformation of the gym at Deepings Leisure Centre and with the consequent increase in people using the centre for leisure and exercise. The leisure centre is a real asset to the Deepings with thousands of adults and children and dozens of organised clubs using the facilities on a weekly basis.”

“The investment in new equipment by 1Life and the Council is reaping its rewards” said SKDC’s Executive Member for Culture Cllr Kelham Cooke. “It’s great to see more residents enjoying the new facilities as we continue to encourage active and healthy lifestyles.”
