New state of the art Olympic inspired training equipment is being installed at Dorchester Sports Centre as part of a new £65,000 fitness room extension.

Members of Dorchester Sports Centre will soon be able to train like an Olympian with the new state-of-the-art Olympic inspired training equipment which is being installed as part of a new £65,000 fitness room extension at the centre.
The investment will include extending the gym area and installing specialist equipment including the new Technogym Skillmill machine which has been developed with athletes in mind during the last six Olympics, and which was launched at the Rio Olympics earlier this year.  The Skillmill is a great new tool for power, speed, stamina and agility training. The new fitness room will also be equipped with the latest innovation in stair mill technology, functional equipment such as Kinesis stations, additional free weights and a dedicated stretch and abs area.  
Dorchester Sports Centre will also see the arrival of cutting edge biomechanical measuring tool; Tanita MC 780. The Tanita device measures weight, body fat, body water, muscle mass, metabolic rate and much more.

The front of house reception area will also have a new self-serve kiosk equipped with ipads so customers can check them selves in more quickly.

The refurbishment has been made possible through financial support from West Dorset District Council.
The work which will involve removing some internal walls in the existing gym area is expected to begin on the 12th of December, it will take 2 weeks to complete with limited impact for customers who will still be able to work out while the  refurbishment is carried out. Equipment will be arriving in two batches, the first arriving before Christmas and the rest in the New Year.
1610 Fitness Manager, Joe Philip says that the new investment will mean that Dorchester Sports Centre will have one of the best fitness rooms in the South West; " Training technology in the leisure industry is being constantly redeveloped to improve performance and the overall experience for our customers so we are delighted to be able to offer the best fitness equipment on the market. The Technogym Skillmill is an impressive and highly adaptable fitness tool which will make a real difference to our customers who want to gain from the training experience of Olympians. This new investment in our fitness room will also make it one of the most up to date and well equipped gyms in the South West."
