The Edge ready for new term with major refurbishment
The Edge’s new facilities – which include a complete upgrade of cardiovascular and resistance equipment – are now complete and ready for use.
The improvements position it as one of the premier health and wellbeing centres in the city.
The new layout of the fitness suite provides more space for strength and resistance training and spin studio has been refurbished with a new layout and bikes.
Flooring and lighting have been replaced to create a warm and inviting atmosphere and a new sound system to create a better ambiance.
Suzanne Glavin, Head of Sport & Physical Activity, said:
“This major update helps The Edge to stand out from competitors to an even greater extent. It is essential that we cater to the ever-changing needs of our customers, and currently there is a focus in fitness on strength and functional equipment, which we have met by including equipment such as a master centre rig.”
Jon Webster, Site Manager for Sewell Construction said;
“We’re proud to play a part in this development, which will help improve leisure facilities for staff and students at the University of Leeds, as well as the wider community.
“As with all our schemes, sustainability and carbon impact are high on our agenda, and we have ensured that any waste from site has been disposed of in a responsible way. Across all our sites we strive for 96% being diverted from landfill and we hope this will continue to be improved even further.”
