Glenfield centre updates

UPDATE: Tuesday 7 June 2022

Our Studio 2 and lower level gym is getting a fresh coat of paint! This means:

Studio 2 closed, from 13 June - 20 June

Lower level gym open with service disruptions, from 20 June - 29 June

During this time:

  • Use our Interim Group Fitness Timetable
  • Check out the whiteboard at our gym reception pod for any disruption to services
  • You'll have access to other facilities
  • Members and passholders, please check your emails for more information
  • Keep up to date on our website

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for any updates about these works. If you have any questions, please get in touch with our friendly staff.


UPDATE: Tuesday 19 April

Extended Closure: Female gym changing room and accessible shower closure extended to 2 May 2022

Our Female Gym Changing Room and Accessible Shower behind reception is getting a much-needed upgrade!

During this time, the female changing room on poolside, and the toilets by Studio 2 will be available.

Why is it getting an upgrade?

You may have noticed that they are run-down, old, and in need of some love, so we're getting new tiles and new wall linings! This will also help to prevent the water from leaking into the gym!

Is the Male Gym Changing Room still open?

Yes. And so is one of the accessible showers by the gym.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for any updates about these works. If you have any questions, please get in touch with our friendly staff.
