As part of the project, the centre’s existing power assisted exercise machines from UK Manufacturer, Shapemaster, will be moved from the first floor into the Wellness Hub. The larger space will offer a much more welcoming and social atmosphere, provide room for even more specialist assistive equipment as well as further complementary wellbeing services.
Rob added: “The existing toning suite at the site is already a nationally recognised facility for the number of customers it supports, but once this work is complete our Wellness Hub will be home to the largest toning therapy facility of its kind in the country and stationed alongside a new studio space for low impact group exercise classes.”
To be completed in the Summer, the Wellness Hub will support many of Lincs Inspire’s existing and new members, together with patients referred by GPs and other health care organisations and medical professionals.
Cllr Proctor, portfolio holder for economic development, housing, and tourism from North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “The Wellness Hub is ideal for rehabilitation, those not used to intensive regular exercise, and people who are living with long-term medical conditions.
“The existing suite supports those living with the physical effects of health conditions, such as a stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, arthritis and Fibromyalgia, as well as those recovering from joint surgery to name but a few. The social engagement is also vitally important as is the guidance and caring encouragement from Lincs Inspire’s wellbeing team.
“I’m pleased that the Council has been able to support this project and I anticipate that this will be a great asset for our residents.”
