The Triangle Leisure Centre Undergoes £765k Refurbishments

2024004 - 17/01/2024

The Triangle Leisure Centre, owned by Mid Sussex District Council and run by Places Leisure is benefitting from significant investment. Upgraded gym facilities have opened further to a £765k investment, and to bolster sustainability, a £200k solar photovoltaic system has been installed. The upgrades aim to provide members with innovative, environmentally-friendly facilities.

Planned in partnership with Mid Sussex District Council, the gym upgrade introduces new equipment supplied by Life Fitness, including Smith machines, Concept 2 Ski Ergos, HD Performance Air Bikes, and Power Mills. These additions will help improve cardiovascular health and offer new strength and power training facilities.

Councillor Chris Hobbs, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Customer Services at Mid Sussex District Council, said: “It's been great to see the transformation and improvements at The Triangle Leisure Centre. The addition of these new facilities will enhance our community's well-being and play a significant role in making our district a healthier and happier place.

“This investment is a step towards making inclusive, sustainable, and outstanding spaces for everyone and we look forward to all future improvements in our leisure centres and creating a vibrant, healthy district.”

Aligning closely with the Council's own ambitions, Life Fitness and Places Leisure are dedicated to localising refurbishments and tailoring projects to suit the needs of surrounding communities. The newly installed machines not only offer advanced features but also contribute to energy efficiency, supporting Places Leisure's Net Zero goal by 2035.

Sarah Roberts, Head of Fitness at Places Leisure says “Working with Life Fitness has been like a breath of fresh air – their can-do attitude and approach to finding solutions which not only suit, but also complement our business to enable us to flourish has been excellent. Our robust procurement process has enabled us to explore the whole family of brands within Life Fitness, resulting in us offering accessible, inclusive, market leading and outstandingly beautiful gym facilities to support the communities we serve.”

The Sports Hall has also recently undergone renovations in order to upgrade the space, and a refurbished Costa store reopened last month.
