A TOP-of-the-range gym has opened to help villagers stick to their New Year’s resolutions to get fit and healthy.

North East Derbyshire MP Natascha Engel cut the ribbon to launch the new Fitness Suite at Killamarsh Sports Centre, which has been refurbished and fitted with the latest cardiovascular and resistance equipment.

The Labour politician also tried out the machines, as customers, councillors and players from the Derbyshire Arrows Basketball Team, who play at the centre, looked on.

Chris Bloomfield, sports duty manager at the centre, on Stanley Street, Killamarsh, said: “The launch event was a huge success. Everyone was very impressed with the improved facilities at the centre.”

The new gym features ‘Smart Centre’ technology, which guides people through exercise programmes and tracks their progress towards their fitness goals - recording the details on people’s membership cards.
