Improvements to the gym facilities will include the latest gym equipment from Life Fitness and Indigo Fitness, as well as cardio and fixed resistance machines, multi-functional training rigs, colour-coded training zones and enhanced audio and visual solutions.
The redeveloped spaces will also feature the latest technology including Myzone, which syncs to apps and monitors workouts.

In addition, a newly refurbished dance studio will open later this month, featuring new LED lights, flooring and wall designs along with large screen and fitbox to stream virtual classes.

The project follows the refurbishments which have already been carried out at Brechin Community Campus and Montrose Sports Centre as part of a £900,000 investment programme to upgrade and revitalise its Sport & Leisure portfolio.

The gym will remain closed until September 24 and members can use any other ANGUSalive facility during the closure including Arbroath’s Saltire Sports Centre.

Iain Stevens, senior manager for business & development at ANGUSalive, said: “We’ looking forward to seeing the improvements coming to fruition at Arbroath Sports Centre starting with the new dance studio space.
“It has been great to receive fantastic feedback so far from members and visitors on the improvements made to our sports centres and hope that the investment will inspire more people to come and be healthy, active and creative with us in Angus.”

Julie Aitken, operations lead for Arbroath Sports Centre, also welcomed the refurbishment programme.

She added: “The new dance studio space will be an excellent addition ahead of the exciting changes we’re making to the fitness spaces.

“The upgraded space will provide a modern area for live instructor-led workouts as well as a wide range of virtual classes as part of our new fitbox programme.

"The additional bonus is that members can book it to run a virtual class of their choosing and also local community and sports groups can hire it for training and fitness activities."

“We’re keen to be able to use this new studio in many different ways to benefit members and the local community overall.”

Other redevelopment plans for the ANGUSalive portfolio include redevelopment and upgrades to Carnoustie Sports Centre with more details being announced in the coming weeks and months.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
