TechnoGym selected for Eltham Leisure Centre 24/7

Major improvements to the Eltham Leisure Centre will be welcomed by the residents of the Nillumbik Shire. Already the beneficiary of a $20m aquatic re-development, Nillumbik Shire Council, in partnership with management group Aligned Leisure, can now confirm that the health club area will undergo its own major transformation over the upcoming months.

Brand new flooring, a fresh coat of paint and the entire range of health club equipment is being replaced with brand new, state of the art Technogym equipment.

Nillumbik Mayor Peter Clarke said: “The world class suite of gym equipment being installed at Eltham Leisure Centre will complement the major improvements council is undertaking in the aquatics area of the facility.”

“As a result of these improvements members will benefit from 24 hours – seven days a week gym access, allowing them to work out at a time that suits them.

Aligned Leisure, who commenced management of the Eltham Leisure Centre on July 1st, considered a range of different options for the Eltham Leisure Centre health club, before settling on Technogym. “We are incredibly proud to bring world class equipment to the Eltham Leisure Centre. Technogym have recently been appointed official fitness equipment supplier for both the Athletic World Championships, taking place later this year in London, and the 2018 Commonwealth Games to be hosted on the Gold Coast” said Shane Dunne, Chief Executive Officer of Aligned Leisure.

In addition to the high-quality health club equipment that Technogym provide, they are also industry leaders when it comes to environment and sustainability. As a result, Aligned Leisure and Nillumbik Shire Council have entered into an agreement with Technogym to work towards implementation of their renewable energy solution that is currently only available in the European Union. This would see energy, harvested from the use of cardio equipment in the health club, used to power the operations of the facility.

“Our quintessential purpose is to completely align our programs and services to the unique needs of the local communities that we work within and we understand that the environment and sustainability are incredibly important to residents in Nillumbik. As a result, we are now working with Technogym and Nillumbik Shire Council on an Australian first renewable energy solution” added Shane Dunne.

Technogym’s Australian Managing Director, Claudio Bertozzi was equally excited about partnering in the major upgrades to the Eltham Leisure Centre. “Technogym is very proud to partner with Aligned Leisure in providing the Nillumbik Shire community with the best in fitness technology and end-user experience. The brand-new Technogym equipment will be integrated with the mywellness system, a cloud-based training platform that allows users to access a variety of training programs and tools to monitor and track their progress”.

And if all these upgrades weren’t enough, council have also confirmed that the Eltham Leisure Centre health club, group fitness room and spin room will all become available 24/7 for members.

“We very deliberately added virtual fitness to the group fitness program as soon as we took over management of the facility” said Shane Dunne.

“The facility lends itself to provide access to the health club, and both group fitness areas 24 hours a day and 7 days per week. The addition of virtual fitness ensures that members training outside of normal facility hours will have access to an endless range of classes, any time of the day that they want, in a virtual environment” added Dunne.

“It is clear that these solutions have been designed to meet the unique needs of Nillumbik Council and its residents”, concluded Cr Clarke. “Our residents can be incredibly proud that our Eltham Leisure Centre will soon be a leader in both world class health facilities and renewable energy solutions; the envy of leisure facilities in the region”.

All health club works will be completed in November and December, whilst the aquatic re-development is expected to be complete mid-2018.
