WIGAN’S newest gym is fit for a future Olympian! And if you don’t believe us, ask one.
The borough’s very own track star and 2012 hopeful Jenny Meadows has given the new Profiles Health and Fitness Suite at Robin Park the official seal of approval.
The new gym now boasts state-of-the-art equipment including the new Technogym ‘Wellness’ system which produces weekly, monthly and daily reports on users’ progress.
The system also allows instructors to leave messages, updates and challenges for each member. Which is great news for Jenny as she prepares for next year’s games.
The track star, hotly tipped for a medal at the London Olympics, is the third fastest ever British woman over 800m behind Kelly Holmes and Kirsty Wade.
She said: “When I’m in training I spend a lot of my time in the gym so it is important that it’s a nice, relaxed and modern place to be.
“The new gym at Robin Park is all this and more!”
But the new gym’s not just there for the sporting elite, anyone can get to grips with its fantastic new technology.
For those who find the gym a slog, you can set challenges and watch as you run the streets of London or Paris on a visual map, play games, watch movies or listen to your own iPod through the system!
Mike Lyons Commercial Manager for Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust, who manage the centre, said: “Jenny is a real inspiration and we’re delighted she has formally opened the new facilities. This new equipment really is top of the range surpassing anything we’ve had in the past.
“We’re delighted with the new Profiles Health and Fitness suite and feedback from customers so far has been very positive.”
As part of the re-launch a range of special offers are available including Monthly Membership from only £20 a month and there's no joining fee.
