The Bannatyne Health Club in Skelmersdale has received a boost to its equipment and facilities thanks to extra investment.

The Northway health club has had state of the art equipment installed on its gym floor following a half a million pound refurbishment as part of the Bannatyne Group’s continued investment in all of its UK health clubs.

Improvements include the creation of a new functional training area, featuring an Omnia 8 Rig, which aims to increase member interaction by allowing up to eight gym-goers to simultaneously swing, balance and hang from the equipment to strengthen core muscles in a fun and engaging way.

Water Rowers, SKILLMILL, Technogym Selection line fixed resistance kit and Technogym Pure Strength plate loaded equipment has also been installed.

The club has also upgraded its technological offering with the installation of virtual class studios, MYZONE heart rate monitors and the Bannatyne app, which allows members to keep track of their fitness progress, complete challenges on their smart phone and book classes.

Iain Black, General Manager at Bannatyne York, said: “The new gym floor at Bannatyne Health Club Skelmersdale is fantastic. Our members will certainly feel and see the benefits from the state of the art equipment, which will help them to reach their fitness goals more effectively.

“The Omnia 8 Rig is already a big hit with members. Functional training is the way the industry is progressing, with a focus on training movement patterns rather than isolation individual muscle groups when it is used alongside the new results monitoring equipment, I’m sure members will see results faster than they thought possible.

“The new gym floor and extended free weights area are the perfect complement to our existing facilities including, swimming pool, spa pool, sauna, and group exercise rooms for a whole variety of classes, including the fantastic new Block Fit.”
