You've seen the videos, you've heard the rumours but here is the full low-down on what is happening to YOUR gym at Headingley Campus.
What is happening to our gym?
It's no coincidence that the walls have changed colour and works are being done in our gym next to our Sports Centre reception!
We have listened to you and you will be getting what you asked for: a new and improved gym at Headingley Centre.
When will our new and exciting gym be ready?
Good question! We are working hard to get our new fantastic facility open over the Easter period for all of you to come and enjoy the brand new exciting machines and equipment that we will be installing.
But all you are doing is just moving the furniture around, right?
WRONG. Over the Easter period we are going to be bringing you, in collaboration with Matrix Fitness, brand spanking new equipment from new bikes and rowing machines to brand new weight racks, dumbbells and even kettlebells. Our gym will be powered by Matrix for the first time ever and will be replacing all of our existing gym equipment.
We have exciting news for all of you @leedsbeckett students! COMING SOON we will be having a major revamp of our Headingley Gym powered by @MatrixFitnessUK ⬇️check out the video below ⬇️ to see what it's going to look like! https://t.co/G0rSpBcrlj pic.twitter.com/PecPZr0ZWH— Carnegie Sport (@carnegiesport) January 31, 2018
