Lochalsh team in­vests in new fit­ness equip­ment

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

LOCHALSH Leisure Cen­tre has a new look fol­low­ing an up­grade and in­vest­ment in new fit­ness car­dio ma­chines.

It is hoped the cen­tre’s new Spirit Fit­ness equip­ment will ‘en­sure mem­bers ex­pe­ri­ence the best work­outs pos­si­ble’.

Lo­cated be­side the Skye Bridge, which links the main­land to the isle of Skye, the near­est al­ter­na­tive fa­cil­ity is around 30 miles away.

The cen­tre now boats new Spirit Fit­ness el­lip­ti­cals, up­right bikes and a CS800 step­per ma­chine – the first to be in­stalled in the UK.

Lochalsh Leisure has said it hopes that up­grad­ing the equip- ment will show a com­mit­ment to main­tain­ing the fa­cil­ity.

Chris Mack­in­non, man­ager of Lochalsh Leisure Cen­tre, said: ‘Due to our lo­ca­tion we have a lot of mem­bers, around 400500, but rather than be­com­ing com­pla­cent, we be­lieve it’s im­por­tant to pro­vide a good fa­cil­ity that peo­ple en­joy us­ing.

‘The old equip­ment had be­come rather tired, so it was def­i­nitely time for us to up­grade and, so far, ev­ery­one is lov­ing the new Spirit ma­chines.’

As well as a fit­ness suite, Lochalsh Leisure also has a heated in­door swim­ming pool, a steam room and sauna and a free weights room.

Busi­ness de­vel­op­ment man­ager for Spirit Fit­ness Dan Hodge said: ‘Chris and the team at Lochalsh knew they needed to up­grade their equip­ment.

‘Spirit Fit­ness was de­lighted to work with them to de­vise a so­lu­tion that was not only cost ef­fec­tive, but also ex­cel­lent qual­ity.’
