WORK is under way to increase the size of the gym at Hillsborough Leisure Centre.
Sheffield International Venues is investing a six-figure sum to increase the size of the cardio-vascular and resistance areas of the gym from 50 to 85 pieces of equipment.
SIV is also increasing the capacity of gym classes to 100 and will run 95 classes a week at the venue.
Lorenzo Clark, director of operations for SIV, said: “Hillsborough Leisure Centre has always been a hugely popular facility and this investment is part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining a sustainable venue featuring the highest standards and level of service for customers.
“The equipment we are introducing is the very latest Technogym models, the kind used by Team GB athletes at the London Olympics, and we hope the changes will encourage even more people to get involved with physical activity.”
