Bluecoat Sports, a local health and fitness club and one of our trusted businesses, have been working hard behind the scenes recently to find ways to improve their facilities to help their members’ fitness journeys.
Recently, they have announced a brand new outdoor fitness area called ‘The Fitness Yard’ and have submitted a planning application that would see the fitness club almost double their current facilities.
The Fitness Yard is a brand new concept at Bluecoat Sports, members are able to train in the outdoors all year round, giving them a fun and varied way to workout. Fitness Manager, Liam Yeates, handpicked all of the state of the art equipment, to ensure that it was the very best and right equipment for members to enjoy.
The new outdoor fitness space includes:
- A custom built, multi-functional rig for TRX and boxing
- 4 squat racks with lifting platforms
- 4 lane sled track for HIIT
- Market leading Matrix rower, HIIT trainer and S-Force performance trainer
- Fitness container packed with a range of functional fitness equipment for a range of classes and exercises
- Shock turf, state of the art flooring which can be used all year round
The Fitness Yard is due to be opened at the end of August 2019. You can find out the latest information about classes and opening dates here.
Bluecoat Sports have been working over the past year to put together plans to expand the club and facilities. They submitted an application for planning in June 2019 and following a public consultation about the proposed facilities, are now awaiting a verdict, which will be determined on 4th September 2019.
The proposed expansion plans include a two floor expansion to the existing site with the following facilities:
- A leisure pool and teaching pool
- Spa facilities
- Two class studios
- A fitness suite
- A new café area
There will also be an expansion to the outdoor facilities available, which will include a new all weather running track with associated track and field facilities, an adventure trail and a 3G artificial grass pitch for football and rugby.
