Cripps leisure centre installs Cybex gym to celebrate 10-year partnership

Northampton Leisure Trust celebrated its ten-year anniversary working in partnership with Cybex in 2015 with the launch of the newly refurbished Cripps Recreation Centre. Having opened this time last summer, the gym was the fifth Cybex has created with the trust, and has so far been the most popular yet.

The fitness suite, which includes a dedicated strength training area, functional training studio and calming gym, is home to a range of cardio equipment including Cybex Arc Trainers, selectorised strength equipment from Cybex’s VR1 range and the Bravo functional trainer.

The strength training area includes a Cybex power rack and plate loaded smith press; the facility is also home to a Myride® virtual indoor cycling studio, sports hall, squash courts, swimming pool and synthetic turf pitches.

Cripps Recreation Centre is the latest leisure facility in the area to be refurbished by Cybex; Northampton Leisure Trust also operates five other Leisure Centres in the area, all of which house the latest Cybex equipment for use by the local community.

The trust’s membership programme provides users with access to all five gyms; student, corporate and senior citizen rates are also available, as well as the Junior Active membership, which targets users up to 15 years old and includes weekly courses, activities for under 5’s, after school and holiday clubs and free activities in the community.

Built originally in 1974 for the staff of Northampton General Hospital, Cripps Recreation Centre continues to form part of the hospital’s facilities and offers preferential membership rates for staff. Northampton Leisure Trust plan to continue creating more Cybex gyms across Northamptonshire to encourage more people to get active.
