The equipment is just one of the improvements planned for Hydro as it undergoes a major refurbishment from Monday, December 5 to Monday, December 19.

Some of the latest Technogym fitness equipment and technology will be installed in the Brimhams fitness centre including their latest Selection Pro resistance machines.

Along with state of the art training equipment for the Brimhams centre, The Hydro’s changing areas will be getting a revamp, with new cubicles and décor, and the dance studio is being redecorated.

Coun Stanley Lumley, Harrogate Borough Council’s cabinet member for Culture and Sport said: “We are committed to investing in the district’s leisure and sporting facilities and the major refurbishment work at the Hydro along with the Brimhams upgrades will provide residents with great places to exercise and keep fit.

“The Brimhams fitness centres across the district will be completely transformed with equipment that is stylish and modern, and better meets the expectations of modern gym users. It will also enable us to continue to lead the way in offering the best fitness training venues in the area.

“We hope that residents will enjoy using the new, improved fitness centres and will bear with us whilst the work is carried out.

"This is an exciting time for our leisure centres and, as always, our highly trained staff will be on hand to answer any questions people have about the new equipment, and give advice on getting the most out their workouts.”
