A gym has been given a ‘major’ £100,000 boost to improve its facilities just two years after it opened.

Chilterns Lifestyle Centre was given the money to upgrade the fitness facilities over the next four weeks as part of on-going improvements.

The planned works are set to improve the health and fitness offering at the centre in Amersham, which opened in December 2021.

Buckinghamshire Council’s cabinet member for culture and leisure Clive Harriss said: “With the Chilterns Lifestyle Centre heading towards its two-millionth visitor in the coming months, I am delighted to see we are able to continue to improve the centre and provide even better facilities for both existing and potential new customers.”

The upgrade works in November will add a gym extension with brand-new equipment, including ‘Assault Bikes’,‘SkiErg’, track and sled and better free-weights.

Alongside these, customers can soon use a ‘Thera-Gun’ to release muscle tension and the innovative ‘InBody’ machine to scan their body to measure its composition and hydration status.

A brand-new group cycle studio with a new stretch area is also being developed.

Once the four-week works are completed, the lifestyle centre team will host a Fitness Open Weekend with gym challenges, raffles and additional group classes to welcome new and existing members.

The centre boasts two swimming pools, a children’s teaching pool and a splash pad area, a 130-station gym, spinning and fitness class studios, a climbing wall, a spa and soft play area among other facilities
