Horizon Leisure Centres, the charity that runs Havant and Waterlooville Leisure Centres, is excited to announce that it is undertaking works to double the size of its current Indoor Cycle Studio at the Havant centre and fill it with brand new top of the range bikes.
Indoor group cycling classes have become extremely popular over recent times and the existing Studio at Havant Leisure Centre has struggled to keep up with customer demand.
The existing Studio is to be completely refurbished and extended into the adjoining room, formerly the Over 50’s gym. The room will be decorated in a largely black and red colour scheme and will incorporate special lighting effects. There will be 35 IC6 bikes provided by Life Fitness that provide all necessary interaction and connectivity to link riders to their work outs. The room will also house a new sound system along with a dedicated stage for the class instructor.
In addition, the Studio will be kitted out with a Les Mills based virtual cycling system that will enable far more classes to take place each week than at present. The new system is not instructor-led but technology is used to provide voice-over instructions synced to a choice of cycle-based movie scenes projected onto a large screen for riders to follow.
Howard Broad, Horizon Leisure Centres Chief Executive said “The new enlarged and state of the art cycle studio will provide yet another fantastic addition to the range of leisure facilities we offer the community at both the Havant and Waterlooville Centres. Cycling has become an extremely popular participation sport in this Country and we are delighted to be able to provide such a modern indoor facility to help meet the growth in demand”.
