A state-of-the-art fitness suite at Moorways Sports Village, which is owned by Derby City Council, is to undergo a £250,000 extension to meet demand.

The centre, run by Everyone Active in partnership with the city council, will see its gym expanded into part of the adjoining changing rooms following a joint investment.

It will feature an additional 21 stations, increasing the overall total to more than 140 stations.

Additional features such as new flooring and lighting and a new look and feel will also form part of the refurbishment.

Simon Morgan, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “The extended gym is going to be a wonderful facility that will really enhance our state-of-the-art fitness offering at Moorways Sports Village.

“These changes will allow us to accommodate the needs of the local community, with the popularity of the centre meaning our number of fitness members has quickly expanded to 4,500.”

Councillor Nadine Peatfield, the city council’s cabinet member for city centre, regeneration, culture and tourism, said: “It’s so exciting to see Moorways Sports Village go from strength-to-strength, with fitness membership far exceeding the level we expected to see 15 months after opening.”
