Further information

Gym refurbishment works from 20 February

From 20 February, the gym at the centre is set to undergo a major refurbishment across several months, which aims to reopen in Summer 2020.

The investment of more than £2million, will also include the leisure centres at Aylestone and Evington. 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.

How will this affect me?

Please note that while the gym facilities are closed during this period, the swimming pool and sauna will remain open. The centre's sports hall will be permanently closed as we make room for the expanded gym and studio space. We have six other gyms across the city. If you already have an Active Leicester gym membership, you can access any of these as part of your current membership. 

Can I freeze my membership?

You can freeze your membership at no cost while works are taking place. To do so, email our membership team or call 0116 454 0910.

What's going to change?

Complementing the 30m pool and sauna facilities, the refurbished Cossington Street Sports Centre will feature:

  • A 50-station gym
  • Functional training space
  • Free weights
  • Programmable gym space
  • A group exercise studio
  • Refurbished changing rooms.
