Seaton Fitness Centre celebrates its first birthday on Saturday (November 18) and operators LED Leisure are inviting residents to join the weekend celebrations.

The Fitness Centre, which includes a 35 station gym and group exercise studio, is located on the first floor of the Grove development that was built by Axminster Properties Limited, a Trust fund set up by Axminster Power Tools.

Operators say it has proved a huge hit in its first 12 months, both with local residents and visitors, and currently has more than 600 members.

LED Area Manager Marcus Allen said: “The gym has really taken off in Seaton, and we are making the most of the space that the facility offers. The team of gym and class instructors have established a very good rapport with our customers and it really is a fun and motivating environment in which to exercise.”

In addition to the gym, The Fitness Centre offers 45 group exercise classes a week. Cardio sessions, studio cycling and step are on the programme, alongside core-based workouts like yoga and pilates. There are also three of the popular Les Mills classes – body pump, body combat and body balance.

LED’s Vanessa Loader leads on the GP exercise referral programme at Seaton Fitness Centre.

She said: “We currently have 17 people enrolled on the programme. It is a 12 week rolling programme, so we’ve seen a number of people move on to become regular gym users and lead healthier lifestyles as result.

“Over the last 12 months we’ve seen over 80 people pass through our referral scheme.”

In addition to Pulse, Vanessa also covers cardiac rehab and cancer rehab sessions.

To celebrate its first year, the team at Seaton Fitness Centre is inviting customers to help raise money for Children in Need on Friday (November 17). There will be a treadmill half-marathon challenge, plus a special fancy dress circuit class in the evening.

The team will also be offering “party bags” to the first 100 customers on Saturday (November 18).

There is also a special joining offer for any new customers over the weekend.
