Gym refurbishment works

The gym at Braunstone Leisure Centre is undergoing a major refurbishment, thanks to a further investment of £1.94 million to develop more of our facilities within the city. The gym will relocate to the sports hall while works are being carried out. 

What’s going to change? 

  • An 80-station gym
  • State of the art cardiovascular equipment
  • Functional training space
  • Free weights
  • Group cycling studio

When will it happen?

The project to improve Braunstone Leisure Centre will take place across several months, starting in August with the gym expected to be completed in January 2023.

Frequently asked questions

The gym will relocate to the sports hall and as a result, we may have to move some Group Exercise Classes to different locations, such as New Park Leisure Centre, however we hope to minimise this to ensure there is little disruption to our members.

If this does happen to a class you attend, you’ll be able to see the location of the class when booking.

Yes, the swimming pool will continue to operate as normal throughout the project.

You can freeze your membership at £3 charge, however please note, during the refurbishment the gym will still be open, it will just be relocating to the sports hall.

We do not currently have a firm date for completion; however, it is expected to be ready in January 2022. Whilst the refurbishment takes place, the current gym and all of the equipment, will be relocated to the sports hall for members to use.

This phase of the project will focus on improving and expanding the gyms at Spence Street and Braunstone leisure centres, as well as improving the studio and entrance area at Aylestone leisure centre. In addition, £213,000 has been approved for energy reduction measures at Spence Street which will be undertaken at the same time.

With this investment we are aiming to meet the needs of the local community, by expanding the space of our centres, creating more opportunities for local people to come together and get active.
