Gym and Studio Refurbishments

We're pleased to announce that we're making some improvements to the Gym and Studio really soon. We wanted to let you know what's changing and when it's happening.
Gym Refurbishment - 24th – 28th April 2017
Here are all the extras that we are adding:
  • New Functional Training Area
  • New Jordan Functional Fitness Rig
  • Plyometric Boxes
  • Kettle Bells
  • Space for small group Personal Training sessions
We will be re-arranging some areas of the gym to accommodate the new kit during the installation so the free weights section and community gym areas will not be available to use during these 5 days.
The great news is that the Cardio section and Power Plate area will still be available to use as normal and all classes will also run as normal!
Studio Refurbishment 17th - 19th May 2017
We're revamping the Studio for you with:
  • New Flooring
  • Redecoration
  • Brand New Les Mills™ Smart Kit including Bars, Plates and Steps
Unfortunately, while the work is being carried out, the studio will be out of action for all classes. Circuits in the Sports Hall will run as normal.  Classes will be back on as usual on Saturday 20th May.
We hope you are as excited as we are about these changes.
Thank you,
Sovereign Centre Management Team



This slippery, high climb slide is the newest attachment which can be slid down,  bounced down or fall down. However you have to get to it first as it is at the end of the challenging course!

SWIMTAG is similar to a fitness tracker like Fitbit but it’s specifically designed for swimmers. You wear a SWIMTAG band on your wrist which records all your swims. Come along for your next swim at The Sovereign Centre and collect a SWIMTAG band from reception to wear during your swim. Once you have recorded your first swim and returned your band, it’s put back in its dock and your data uploads to the SWIMTAG website. All you have to do is simply register online with SWIMTAG with your Sovereign Centre membership card number (Barcode number 50103628) and simply login to see your swim. See our SWIMTAG page on our website for more details.
