Life Fitness Strengthens Strategic Partnership with Edinburgh Leisure

Media Room

Life Fitness, the global leader in fitness equipment manufacturing, has recently installed a wide range of equipment at Leith Victoria Swim Centre, following a £180K investment in a full gym refurbishment by Edinburgh Leisure.

The refurbished gym, totalling 300m², re-opened on Saturday 8th July, with improvements in space, functionality and variety, and investment in latest Life Fitness equipment spanning strength and conditioning, cardio and resistance as well as technology including Discovery SE consoles.

Leith Victoria now boasts a comprehensive range of premium equipment from the Life Fitness Elevation Series including Treadmills, Recumbent Lifecycle Bikes, Upright Lifecycle Bikes, Elliptical Cross-Trainers and PowerMill Climbers. The centre also installed strength equipment from the Life Fitness Insignia Series, including the Chest Press and Leg Extension, and the Linear Leg Press and Chin/Dip/Leg Raise from the Life Fitness Signature Series, as well as Hammer Strength equipment.

Additionally, identifying a need for a different type of gym offering, the centre fitted the Bravo Functional Training system which is not offered by any local competitor. The system combines unique technologies and the best aspects of selectorized and cable-based strength training equipment.

Dave McLean, Group Fitness Manager at Edinburgh Leisure commented: “We’re delighted with the installation of the new Life Fitness equipment and we're impressed with the professionalism and efficiency of the Life Fitness Academy who held training sessions on the equipment for all our instructors. The new diverse range of equipment means our members can have a varied workout experience, helping them achieve their fitness goals.”

Ross Nixon, Account Manager at Life Fitness, added: “The new gym looks fantastic and the quality of equipment that has been installed will help Leith Victoria establish themselves as a leading leisure centre in the area.”

The refurbished gym offers membership from just £29.90 per month. The centre offers over thirty types of adult fitness classes, and is also equipped with a cycle studio, a sauna, steam room and a 25-yard pool.
