Bannatyne Gym

As part of the refurbishment, around £500k was invested in new, state-of-the-art gym equipment and there are around 100 stations of equipment, making it one of the larger gyms in Cumbria. A full range of cardiovascular machines includes Technogym machines with interactive touch screen technology and smart phone connectivity that enable you personalise your work out and track your performance.

Alongside traditional style treadmills, you will find Skillmills™, which are non-motorised treadmills that are controlled entirely by the user’s movement, allowing the user to enjoy a resistance free walk or run, or an all-out push, and everything in between. There are Water Rowers that stimulate rowing on water, Wattbikes™ that have been designed with Olympic cyclists to produce a real road workout, as well as cross trainers and traditional style exercise bikes.

For strength and resistance training you will find the full range of resistance machines here, including extension and curl machines, press machines, and lat machines, again supplied by Technogym. Recognising the increasing popularity of functional training, the gym has invested in a Technogym Omnia 8 station that allows up to 8 users at a time.

There is a huge free weights area with benches, barbells, dumbbells and kettlebells. Other accessories include fitness balls, sandbags, medicine balls and resistance cables.
