Members and non-members are being invited to try out some brand-new equipment at Alive Lynnsport and Alive Downham Leisure during the Alive Extravaganza on the weekend of April 2 and 3.

Visitors to Alive Lynnsport will be able to experience the new Synrgy360 function space. Based on the concept of circuit training, new equipment, combined with the existing top quality equipment, will give customers an excellent workout experience, enabling them to take their fitness to a whole new level.

At Alive Downham Leisure new equipment includes upgraded cardio equipment; Stair Mills – cardio-vascular machines which look like small escalators and mimic stair climbing; FlexStriders – which give a total-body, low-impact workout; and a TRX Suspension Space, all of which combine to bring a new fitness experience to visitors.

Free taster sessions, which are open to all, will take place from 9.30am to 3.30pm at Alive Lynnsport and Alive Downham Leisure on April 2 and 3.

Leisure staff will be on hand to show how the new equipment works and how it can be tailored to individual needs to help people achieve their fitness goals.

The installation of the new equipment at Alive Lynnsport and Alive Downham Leisure has been made possible thanks to funding of £100,000 from West Norfolk Council.

Cllr Nick Daubney, leader of the borough council, said: “When we decided to set up a new trust to run the leisure facilities, we agreed that we would continue to support the trust with the maintenance of the facilities and equipment.

“We are pleased to be able to support the trust’s continued development by investing in this new equipment which we believe will be popular and will help encourage people as they try to improve their fitness.”

Peter Lemon, chairman of Alive Leisure, said: “Alive Leisure has always strived to offer excellence in fitness training opportunities and so we are delighted to continue to upgrade and expand our fitness equipment in order to continually improve our customers experience.

“We would also like to thank the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk for the continued support they have given Alive Leisure.”
