Northampton Leisure Trust has opened a new Trilogy gym at Cripps Recreation Centre.

The centre, which is within the grounds of Northampton General Hospital, has undergone an extensive revamp since it was taken over by the trust in May.

The trust runs four other leisure facilities in the town under the Trilogy brand.

Ian Redfern, managing director, Northampton Leisure Trust said: “Inspiring Active Lifestyles is what we do. Our partnership with Northampton General Hospital at the Cripps Recreation Centre enables us to expand our offering to customers.

“Cripps now features state of the art equipment and a comprehensive studio/indoor cycling programme, making it an extremely motivating place to exercise. The facility also enables us to deliver our Junior Active membership package with swimming lessons and holiday activities already on offer.”

Charles Abolins, NGH director of facilities and capital development, added: “We recognise our responsibility to encourage and promote the health and wellbeing agenda not just in the context of our patients – and indeed helping to prevent people becoming patients in the first place - but also as one of Northampton’s largest employers.

“We are delighted the future of Cripps has been secured through our partnership with NLT ensuring our employees have access to great facilities and services.”
