New look unveiled at Ayr Citadel gym

New look unveiled at Ayr Citadel gym

A fantastic, modern and state-of-the-art gym opened at the Citadel Leisure Centre in Ayr today, Monday 19 January 2015 – benefitting from a refreshed and vibrant new look, thanks to an investment of almost £500,000 from South Ayrshire Council.

The new gym features ‘Life Fitness’ equipment to boost cardio-vascular training and ‘Hammer Strength’ resistant machines to help build strength and stamina – with friendly staff on hand to help you reach your fitness goals in 2015.

Much of the equipment is wi-fi enabled, allowing customers to watch TV, listen to music, or even download workout data direct to apps on smartphones – allowing exercise regimes to be easily recorded and tracked for optimum performance.

One of the most exciting additions is a brand new inspirational fitness experience Life Fitness SYNRGY 360 workout station – a revolutionary training concept which allows you to train individually or as part of a group.

Councillor Bill Grant, Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, Tourism and Leisure said: “The new facilities have transformed the gym and we can now offer customers more than just a workout – providing limitless opportunities for people to train smarter, better and more effectively – in order to achieve even better results whatever their ambitions.

“Why not give this brilliant new exercise hub a go – whether individually, or with a group of friends and experience first-hand how this new concept can enhance your training?”

Another fantastic addition to the Citadel Gym is the dedicated spin studio, with state of the art spin bikes in vibrant surroundings and a sensational new lighting system, which changes to the beat of the music!

To complete the modernisation programme, the ground floor reception area will also be re-configured to be more customer-friendly, making it easier than ever for customers to access all sports and leisure facilities and get information and advice on what’s on, where and when.

Councillor Grant continued: “It’s perfect for families and helps everyone make an investment in themselves, taking advantage of the benefits from a fitter, leaner lifestyle.”

Superb value gym-only membership packages start from just £13 per month and for a little over £1 per day (£37 per month), you can take advantage of all the leisure facilities including swim, sauna and all fitness classes across all Council venues – not just the Citadel – so you can break a sweat, without breaking the bank!

For further details call 01292 269793, visit or drop into the Citadel and take a look for yourself, the fitness team there will be glad to help.

Councillor Grant concluded: “It’s an exciting time for the Citadel and, as we step into the New Year, it’s a perfect time to keep fit, lead a healthier lifestyle and join the gym!

“Our makeover is complete. Start yours with us today!”
