Gyms at the Pleasance to undergo seven figure refurbishment

Over £1 million will be invested in the Cardio and Eric Liddell Gyms this summer.  

Preparatory work within the Cardio Gym will start from 24 April 2023, when the process of moving some of the existing cardio kit to other spaces in the gym will begin. Once alternative provision is in place, the Cardio Gym will close. We expect this stage of the works to take place from 1 May to late June. During the second stage of the work, planned between late June and August 23, both the Cardio Gym and Eric Liddell Gym will be closed. Further alternative arrangements will be put in place during stage 2 of the works to mitigate, as much as possible, disruption to members.

We plan to reopen the renewed, refreshed and reimagined space in early August 2023.
