BH Live Active, Queen’s Park investment begins

Posted on: 29/09/2017

[Thursday 28 September 2017] Bournemouth, UK – A scheme to improve the public health and wellbeing facilities at BH Live Active, Queen’s Park in Bournemouth is set to begin next month.
Venue operator BH Live plans to invigorate the venue with new Life Fitness equipment including resistance and cardio machines, free weights, a functional rig and lifting platform. The layout and flooring will be improved too.
New activities, to inspire more people to take part in physical activity, include its gym based group exercise classes; More Power, More Primal, More Pulse and More Play. These will be part of a refreshed group exercise programme and gear towards the latest industry trends of functional fitness. The introduction of MyZone will enable customers to maximise on their training through trackable technology.
The improved space will also enable more health referral programmes, including cancer survivorship and activities for younger people, to run. This will broaden the overall offer at the venue and encourage more people to become more physically active.
Its Terrace café will be refurbished, and new lighting installations and energy saving initiatives across the venue will improve ambience and reduce CO2 emissions by more than half over the next five years.
“This investment will create better public health and fitness facilities for the local community and enable us to broaden our activity programme, says Mike Lyons, BH Live’s Director for Sport and Leisure.
“This supports our mission to encourage more people to enjoy a more active lifestyle and experience the health benefits that this brings.”
Work is scheduled to begin in October and complete by the New Year. It will be carried out in phases to minimise disruption and the venue will remain open throughout.
Customers will be advised of the renovation programme and they can also use the facilities at neighbouring venues including Littledown, Stokewood, Sir David English and Pelhams.
